One reviewer called this a "heroic journey." In 1955, Harvard student Bob Gebelein saw the threat of nuclear annihilation as proof of total systems failure. He was the American dream come true, but he wasn't happy. He saw "The Waste Land" by T.S. Eliot as his world. So he turned his back on the culture and set out to design a new civilization - new values, new beliefs, new ideals, new goals, a new standard of living, a new way of thinking, and a new way of life. RE-EDUCATING MYSELF is the story of his search and the answers that he found. His methods were psychotherapy, withdrawal from the culture, and dream analysis, taking advantage of the self-steering process. This is "the road less traveled" traveled, and beyond, to discover a transition point in human psychological growth where "human nature" itself changes, from competitive self-interest to compassion and altruism. If a majority of people reached this point, we would have a new civilization.
