invention to deter supermarket theft. While at IBM, Jack's success in sales earned him
recognition in the 100 Percent Club twelve consecutive times as well as three Golden
Circle awards. Jack's drive to write this book stems from his interest in observing
people's responses to life's events. He is primarily concerned with addressing the
fundamental questions of life: Why are we the way we are? How did we get to be the way we
are? And how can we change the way we are? Jack has participated in a variety of
individual and group therapies. He has at-tended seminars at the Monroe Institute, Esalen,
and throughout the world, and has traveled to Brazil to observe surgery with-out
anesthetic, trances, and channeling. Jack is also an accomplished showman and actor.
He has created industrial shows and movies for IBM and other companies. His talent for
public speaking has led to invitations to deliver motivational speeches to sales forces,
lectures to colleges, and interviews on television and radio stations. Jack is a
nationally ranked racquetball player.
