Its like pitching to a batter who never takes thefirst ball pitched. How to get these readers to peruse ones introductory remarks becomes an authors dilemma. The preface can be omitted. But that would be an example of solving problems by running away from them, and thats poor psychology in a book on psychology. Somewhere in this book I point out that John Barrymore habit ually employed the ineffective escape mechanism of fleeing from his problems. Barrymore kept running away from his wives all four of them. This writer has no desire to lead a life of flight. George Bernard Shaw said in one of his introductions that only a fool reads an introduction first. Then we find him writing a high-sounding philosophical introduction in the form of a thirty three page letter addressed to a fellow critic, which he calls epistle dedicatory. But hes George Bernard Shaw. In Somerset Maughams recent offering, The Razors Edge, he has an introduction that he wants the reader to read. So he starts his book with it and calls it chapter one. But hes Somerset Maugham. Now I have a few prefatory remarks that I would like to have read, and also some words of thanks and acknowledgment that I would like the reader to know about. I do not wish to treat these acknowledgments cursorily, nor do I wish to discharge my obliga tions by heaping them line upon line into a mass of unreadable names of people, books and places. And so, I begin my preface with the words of Benjamin Franklin jL t eface NOT thou disturbed, O grave and sober reader, if among the many serious sentences in my book thou findest me trifling now and then, and talking idly. In all the dishes I have hitherto cooked for thee, there is solid meat enough for thy money. There are scraps from the table ofwisdom that will, if well digested, yield strong nourishment to thy mind. But squeamish stomachs cannot cat without pickles which, tis true, are good for nothing else, but they provoke an appetite. These are the words of Benjamin Franklin, offered by his Poor Richard in 1739 applied to this book I say, ditto...
