This book is primarily intended for "laypeople," those who have already experimented with this or that therapy. However, I would be pleased if, in addition, therapists who have already used either Reiki or Dr. Schuessler's Mineral Salt Therapy for a while could incorporate any ideas, which may potentially be new for them, into their daily practice!
PINS, TICKLES AND THORNS is a real story written by a troubled man in great mental pain. The mental pain becomes physical pain when he tries to put on paper what that pain is...what caused that pain and, most of all, why. The book reveals stories about cheating wives and stupid husbands and what they have to do with the writer's pain. The locations are worldwide showing that these problems are not assigned to any one location but are universal. The writing style changes, sometimes abrubtly, depending on the mental anguish of the writer at the time. Telling a nice love story of his first real love is written tenderly and softly. As he begins to recognize possible causes of this pain the writing may be bitter, angry, sad and sometimes apologetic. This book was not intended to be a "book," it was intended to solve the writer's problem. Make that, "problems." How many affairs does it take to turn a seemingly sexually satisfied man into a "porcupine turned inside out"? Occasionally some comments are in italics. The writer recognizes that some of his comments are not going to be believed by some readers, especially older women. The comments in italics are an attempt to let readers know that his comments are not intended to make the reader think what he does and says is "normal," they were normal for this writer. The writer's pain is revealed in the changes in writing style. A lot of dots, double spacing on some pages, and abrupt endings of some chapters are only expressions of his pain, his words show him trying to find the answers to his painful questions. Of course all names and places have been changed to protect the guilty.
