About this title


"Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me."

What power do words have over you?

If you receive a compliment, do you swell with pride? If someone insults you, do you crumble into depression, guilt, or anger?

The Secret Power Of Words explains how words are mere noises which in themselves have no inherent meaning, except for what we project through them. Yet, words can rule our lives and drive us to feel and behave in reactive, unconscious, and destructive ways.

Words are the material out of which cruel people spin a hypnotic web of confusion, misery, and lifelong slavery. The influence of words lead to an oversensitivity to other peoples words, can erode faith and confidence in your own perceptions.

It is possible to break the spell of words. Roy Masters explains how to become free from their hypnotic power.

About the Author:

Roy Masters who in his 80s continues to broadcast the longest-running counseling show in talk radio history started his journey toward understanding human nature in the most unlikely of places. Growing up in pre-WWII England, he watched a performer easily put his volunteer subjects under a hypnotic spell and induced each of them to do strange and outlandish things. How, the young Roy wondered, could a smiling, personable stranger cause well-dressed, educated, competent adults to forget their names? Puzzled by the mysterious power the hypnotist had exercised over his subjects, Roy distinctly remembers pondering the question: Why can t hypnotism be used to make people act sensibly, rather than foolishly? Inspired by the idea of harnessing this baffling force for good, he later pursued the art of hypnotism and established a successful hypnotherapy practice. Over years of counseling as well as personal experience, Roy realized that the root of the power of negative suggestion lay in our wrong emotional response, and so he began to search for a way to help people overcome the hypnotic power of stress. After years of searching, he discovered a remarkably effective meditation method, and has been teaching it with spectacular results ever since. For over 50 years Roy counsels people primarily through his internationally syndicated daily radio program Advice Line, where callers discuss their most intimate problems and find genuine help and healing. He has served as a daily voice of sanity and conscience to his listeners, with the uncanny ability to zero in quickly on core problems. As the institutional home for his counseling work, Masters formed the Foundation of Human Understanding in 1961. Through his daily radio broadcasts, lectures, seminars, his 18 books, countless audio and video programs and the Internet he has helped millions worldwide. He has also established a successful prison outreach and an innovative private K-12 school. Beyond all this, and at a time in life when most people would have long since retired, an energetic Roy Masters is delving deeply into yet another long-time interest physics and cosmology. He has authored Finding God in Physics as well as a more technical treatise, Gravity Driven Universe and has lectured on Electricity from Gravity at the American Physical Society in Denver. Roy Masters and his wife, Ann, have been married since 1952. They have five grown children and 18 grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
