The text pages are clean and bright. Dr. Courtney uses self help and the theories of Christian Science to aid in rehabilitation of patients. "Eddy described Christian Science as a return to "primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing". There are key differences between Christian Science theology and that of other branches of Christianity. In particular, adherents subscribe to a radical form of philosophical idealism, believing that reality is purely spiritual and the material world an illusion. This includes the view that disease is a mental error rather than physical disorder, and that the sick should be treated not by medicine, but by a form of prayer that seeks to correct the beliefs responsible for the illusion of ill health.

His paternal great-grandfather was a brother of Brigham Young and was reputedly instrumental in founding the Mormon settlement. Vash Young's early life was one of deprivation and hardship. His father was more often absent than not, and his mother died when he was only 12. Vash's schooling was cut short as he had to help support the family - including three younger siblings - then living with his grandparents. Tragedy struck again when his grandmother died and he left Salt Lake City at 16 years of age to seek his fortune in Chicago where his older brother was then living. He struggled to find employment initially due to his lack of education and basic numeracy. He eventually moved to New York City where he continued to battle depression, self-doubt and failure until the revelation that turned him into a success. His philosophy placed great emphasis on helping others, and a series of books were one expression of this.". Very Good+ in Good+ dust jacket .
