Choices and Illusions: How Did I Get Where I Am, and How Do I Get Where I Want To Be?

Eldon Taylor, PhD, FAPA

In his best-selling book, Choices and Illusions, Taylor applies the same approach he uses as a deception-discovering criminalist to unravel human behavior. In Choices and Illusions, Taylor reveals the thoughts behind the behavior when people are doing what they want to do and when they are doing what they don’t want to do. But most significantly, he teaches that it is never too late to be happy and successful, regardless of the past.

Countless case studies detail how attitude pervasively affects every aspect of life. Reading this best-selling book will open a new realm of possibilities for readers who translate the message into life action. Taylor exposes false illusions, and replaces them with simple teachings to help each reader reach his or her highest potential. Choices and Illusions tells the story of one man’s journey into the workings of the human mind and raison d’etre [reason for being].

Eldon Taylor has made a lifelong study of the human mind and has earned doctoral degrees in psychology and metaphysics. He is a Fellow with the American Psychotherapy Association and a nondenominational minister. Taylor is both president and director of Progressive Awareness Research, Inc.
