I found many books already out there, most probably written better than I would do.

I started to think though that these books are usually bought by people who are already interested in these topics. What I hope to accomplish is to increase awareness across a broader audience.

Frank Herbert
“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
Frank Herbert, Dune
