THE MIND GYMNASIUM

Denis Postle

In 1989 Gaia Books came to me with a great title and wondered if I would write the book to go with it. The result The Mind Gymnasium, an introduction to humanistic psychology, which, for reasons of marketing was described as ‘a new age guide to personal growth’. It sold well, around 70k copies and alongside the original UK, US and Australian editions, was translated into French, Spanish, Finnish, Russian and even Korean. Handily, paper copies of The Mind Gymnasium are easily available on the internet.

In year that the book was published, the world wide web was invented and began to develop, taking me with it. After a new full colour US edition of the Mind Gymnasium was scuppered by delays in producing sample pages, I saw the possibility of a much expanded digital edition of the book, and with Gaia’s agreement to use the book’s artwork, embarked on a hopelessly uneconomic labour of love, the Mind Gymnasium CD-ROM edition – 1200+ pages – hundreds of illustrations – in effect a large web site on a CD-ROM.

In a market where such items were unknown, the four hundred copies of the CD-ROM took several years to sell out. It is still available on request because the original files are of course still in existence.



However 1200 pages proved to be an over-compendious and challenging amount of material for some people and as the CD-ROM was selling out I decided to make a selection of the chapters available as FREE ebooks. Through them the material would continue to have a life and, as intended, most of the book/CD-ROM proved to be generic, it hasn’t gone out of date. And so was born the Mind Gymnasium FREE eBook Library featuring 29 pdf based ebooks for download.
