    Fourth Edition.

    People have always had wonderful, fiercely held beliefs about the proper uses of the human body and mind. Arthur Lovell, for his part, believed in treating “actual life as a work of art and every individual as an artist.” To this end, Lovell wrote this punchy, uncompromising little guide to achieving the absolute maximum out of one’s body and mind, bringing the individual and their supposedly limitless potential right to the fore. Like a 19th century Tony Robbins, Lovell seeks to awaken the giant within, and as a close reader of philosophy and literature, he might just be able to do it today, too.
