Comments (Wolfgang): Cover Art by Gwen Goertzel, Edited by Looy Simonoff, James Patton, Mike Maxwell, Sandy Ackerman. From the Author's Note, "This book is an extension of three lecture that I did in California during 1991-1992. Much of the material was created during that time. I am including bits from each of the forwards as each one has something to say."
