"Supreme Self-Command" -- Early New Thought Re-Discovery by American Author

This is an important yet practically forgotten book called "Supreme Self Command: Fun in Controlling" from a great author, Dr. Delmer Eugene Croft, who was like a kind of Mark Twain of early 20th Century "pep talks" or motivational essays. He frequently uses humor and his angle is truly unique in positive thinking.

The book states "Self-Command means mental, physical and personal power raised to one-hundred percent efficiency." The dedication says, "I wish you to love life, to be happy with the world, to treasure time. Mingle some levity with your gravity, mix a bit of laughter with your seriousness, day by day be cheerful, hopeful, content. It is the joyous things you have thought, the joyous deeds you have done that shall fill your earth, your heaven with happiness."

This is a facsimile reprint of a book originally printed in 1916. The author of "Supreme Personality" published seven short books between 1915-1922. He worked and printed his books out of New Haven, Connecticut. The book has 48 pages and cardstock covers.

All booklets are reprinted with cardstock covers.
