This book is created from some forty years of teaching by Dr. William James. The teaching is unique in that it reaches persons from High School ("drop outs") to people who have PH.D. Degrees. Sometimes these persons were in the same Seminar together.

The title, Life Management For Young People, does not make this book "for" young people alone, but is a "know how" for the leaders who are to lead young people.

It has been written about the experiences, over the years that have helped hundreds of young people move forward to successful endeavors in their lives. It has also taught teachers and leaders to become disciples, or students from the basic "thought provoking" lectures, discussion, and writings of Dr. James. He has demonstrated the validity in all kinds of settings such as: in church classes in New York, in College classes at the Bronx Community College, in Graduate school for Clergy at Drew Theological Seminary.

These Seminars are divided into three general sections or divisions: the first is called, "The Disciplines of Humankind". This division is to give students some background in the human history of people's learning, and how they have applied this to life's setting. Discipline's real meaning is the "Study of Humankind".

The second section is called "Life Management". This is the anchor section and is given over to the "Proce4ss of Learning" that when we have the facts, the philosophies, and content of these disciplines, how we can, as individuals, in order that we may become best persons ourselves, cooperating with the best in us to help the society become its' best.

The third section is called "The Humanizing And The Dehumanizing Factors In Our Society". This deals with how we as individuals can help to correct the negatives in our society while promoting the positives and, at the same time, knowing the difference.
