The Mind and Its Education by George Herbert Betts (1868 - 1934).
This book of over a hundred years is full of useful and practical information about the mind and it's education of. The author's elegant use of referencing poetry and literature in forming mental images as a way of educating our creative minds makes for a most pleasurable read. ( Mike Justice)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/20220
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Hi Mike! Your MW is ready for you! We will wait here a day or two to see if a DPL will come along. I also edited your post a little bit, I pasted the PG link for your text that goes to its main page instead of directly to the text. Otherwise, everything else looks good!

Just wanted to update:

Some of life's speed bumps have detained me lately. I would also like to finish up all my other commitments on here so that I may focus with tunnel like vision through this whole book. Looks interesting to me. Don't worry. It will get done! At least chapter 1 and soon I hope. I will keep you posted :)
