Description : By the 23rd century Earth's population had reached seven billion. Mankind was in danger of perishing for lack of elbow room—unless prompt measures were taken. Roy Walton had the power to enforce those measures. But though his job was in the service of humanity, he soon found himself the most hated man in the world. For it was his job to tell parents their children were unfit to live; he had to uproot people from their homes and send them to remote areas of the world. Now, threatened by mobs of outraged citizens, denounced and blackened by the press, Roy Walton had to make a decision: resign his post, or use his power to destroy his enemies, become a dictator in the hopes of saving humanity from its own folly. In other words, should he become the MASTER OF LIFE AND DEATH?

Description : In this book, a young man, Tom, has conversations with Guru Dick and Guru Harry. In the conversations, Tom quizzes the gurus on how to become a master of life. Guru Dick explains that to become a master of life, one has to be rich and powerful and able to control life. On the other hand, Guru Harry expounds that a master of life is someone who lives spiritually and able to offer help and kindness. The gurus further offer contrasting views on what is meaningful living. Among various aspects of living, the gurus discuss the following: (1) Is giving to charity meaningful? (2) Is going to holy places to pray, sing and do volunteer work meaningful? (3) Is entering politics meaningful? Finally, the gurus give their own definitions on living a meaningful life. For those who are interested in meaningful living, this book offers a fresh perspective!
