The est training was one of the most valuable experiences I've ever had, bar none.)
As David suggested, I would be delighted to send you the book. I think you will find it fascinating. In fact, Ira suggested it, but I have been negligent.
You are in touch with Ira in prison? Please tell him 5 friends of mine received that hate letter mailed from Springfield MO on Sept 17, 2005 basically accusing me of the sorts of crimes against women that he was accused of! Strange that appeared out of the blue around same time that this book is coming out. This is happening at same time I have cracked the physics enigma of how the alien flying saucers really work! If you go to my website http://stardrive.org Discussion forum you will find technical info you can copy and mail to Ira.

I have not read Ira's book, Prelude to Intimacy, since my computer
died and have been borrowing a neighbor's a few hours a day to
deal with my email via server site, but Nayer Hardin and Jim Sorrells
have read it, Jim being Ira's friend from the 60's publishing the book
and Nayer helping get it into/onto eBook format etc, ready for release
any day now, see both cc above.
If you want to do a review of/for the book, one of them can send it.
Sorry to hear about the trouble of the hate mail problem.

Thanks, have you read Ira's book?
You know there is an anonymous hate letter campaign against me
accusing me basically of being drug-crazed and the real Ira Einhorn
serial murderer - even worse - The Devil Incarnate! The letter has me
in league with Werner Erhard and also mentions Michael Murphy and
Nathaniel Brandon. Brandon is almost as evil as me, but I am worse
says the "woman" writer. It started Sept 17, 2005 from a post-box in
Springfield MO. So far I know of 5 identical unsigned letters no
return address all sent out from the same PO at same time.
Herbert Gold said it is the price of fame. It has happened to him.
He told me to wear it as a "badge of honor."
