“If any of you, my readers, are in poor health, or generally unhappy, no one is asking you to pretend that those conditions do not exist. I hope to show you that even those unfortunate situations were created out of a misdirected good intent. In this book, we will keep reminding you, however, that exuberance and high spirits are a natural part of your heritage.
“We also hope to allow you to recapture those feelings, if you have lost them, and to give other ways of keeping those emotions fresh and intact. Readers will benefit in various fashions, according to their own conditions and intents, but every reader will benefit to some degree or another – and each reader will become acquainted with those inner springs of vitality and well-being that are so important in human experience.”
