Master of Everything: A Story of Mankind and the World of Illusion We Call Life

by James Nussbaumer


Usually ships within 6 days


In 2008, financial planner James Nussbaumer was convicted of felony theft. At age fifty, he found himself incarcerated and facing a ten year prison term. On his first night in prison, he was stunned when the locker he is assigned contains a worn, dusty book no one will claim--a book for which he has been searching: A Course in Miracles. His in-depth study of its lessons, combined with frank descriptions of his prison life, will guide readers to a supreme freedom of their own.

By turns instructive, challenging,humorous, and elevating Nussbaumer's inspirational memoir takes us on an inner journey to becoming The Master of Everything.

About the Author

James Nussbaumer had a successful 25-year career in the financial services industry until facing the pressures of an economy in freefall and a personal life in turmoil, he illegally withdrew $100,000 of his clients' funds to try to recoup the value of their investments. The strategy failed and landed him in jail for 10 years. His time in prison has been hell and also unexpectedly fruitful, resulting in his return to his first love: writing. He lives in Massillon, OH.
