Fourth Wise Man

New Edition of an Old Treasure!

Fourth-Wise-Man-cover-sm"A few years before his death -- when times were less hectic for us -- Howard and I began to work on a task very important to both of us. He wanted to republish his first book The Fourth Wise Man, editing out the sexist language that permeated its pages.

The contents are as relevant to today's troubled world as it was when it was first published in 1954."
