David has spoken on The Uniform Structure of Information, Life As A Reading Comprehension Test, and the like, at what was then known as the Institute for Rational Emotive Therapy, prestigious business conferences like Dale Carnegie and the National Federation of Independent Business, and taught his program in some 2000 classrooms from First Grade to PhD's. He is a graduate of Berkeley and received his Masters at Stony Brook. While editing a theatre magazine in San Francisco, David interviewed luminaries throughout the arts on their Common Bonds, which gave him the idea for this book. The farther he looked to see whether anyone had ever written one about that, the more evident it became why the muses are spoken of as sisters, and how that held the key to applying The Lessons WITHIN Their Lessons-how different components of reality are formulated similarly by writers, artists, and composers-to every facet of work and life. David became a member of the National Federation of Independent Business Hall of Fame by using that skill with every kind of business owner: everything is like a garden, a meal, a boat, a cabinet, a catalog, etc. That opened up how learning about their problems and communicating his solutions was like every math lesson you ever learned: first This + or - That = The Other; then Unknowns + or - Constants = Answers, once you moved them around correctly. When he asked David Amram, widely billed as the foremost living American composer, if any of the "juice" in their discussion were already in print anywhere, Amram commented that David brings out the best in him. His book will do that for you, as well.
