My best-selling book, Virus of the Mind, is about the new science of the meme. Memes are pieces of mental programming or conditioning that people acquire throughout their lives. Viruses of the mind spread the (perhaps unwanted) mental programming among people the way computer Richard_Lionviruses infect computers.

My first book, Getting Past OK, is about what I did after I had achieved everything I thought would make me happy--but I wasn't. I explored numerous personal-growth groups with my unabashedly rational and critical mind and was surprised to find, among the hype and B.S., a few ideas so useful that they made a stunning difference in my quality of life when I applied them!

You can order my books on-line through Amazon.Com, though bookstores, or by phone or mail order. Or you can read them for free at your local library. If your library or bookstore does not carry them, ask them to order a copy—they are often more than happy to help you out!
