Seeking meaning in everyday life and wisdom in America, a journalist records his search, creating a guide to the best techniques for self-discovery, a social history of the consciousness movement, and a journey to the center of the soul.

Blackwell North Amer
In 1988, at the height of his career as a journalist, happily married and co-author of a smash number one bestseller, Tony Schwartz hit an unexpected wall. Why did the success he'd sought for so long suddenly feel empty? What was a truly meaningful and complete life, and who could show him how to live it? And how could he explore this wider vision without giving up his life in the "real world"?
During the next five years he crisscrossed the country, meeting with mystics, psychologists, philosophers, physicians, and scientists. Blending the hunger of a seeker with a journalist's commitment to hardheaded inquiry, Schwartz interviewed, challenged, worked with, and sometimes befriended the key figures of a new, distinctively American wisdom tradition.
