This fascinating text concerns itself with the idea of a person’s ability to beat fatigue and make the most of the ‘second wind’ that succeeds physical and mental barriers - barriers that prevent us from being as effective as possible in our various endeavours. The author argues that a “second wind” is a reality in the mental as in the physical realm, and that it can be found and used when needed. This text discusses the stages of fatigue in relation to the undertaking of a strenuous endeavour, and goes on to detail how battling past these ‘fatigue-obstacles’ can cause a surprising effect: the fatigue gets worse up to a certain point, when gradually or suddenly it passes away. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
