A book whose message can help hundreds of millions of people around the world.

Most people live one life. Jack Dreyfus has had two. The first filled with remarkable accomplishments as he founded the Dreyfus Fund. He became known as "the most singular and effective personality to appear on Wall Street since the days of Joseph Kennedy and Bernard Baruch."
The author's second life began in 1963 when, in the midst of a severe depression, he did an unheard of thing, he asked his physician for a medicine not known useful for his symptoms, and returned to good health almost overnight. When he saw six others have similar results, he realized he had an obligation to investigate further.
He retired from two highly successful businesses, established a charitable medical foundation, and has spent the last thirty years of his life and eighty million dollars obtaining information about his medicine. To his amazement he found it had been reported in the world medical literature to be useful for over seventy symptoms and disorders.
In spite of overwhelming evidence, this medicine, parented int he US, is still overlooked, in this country, because of a tragic flaw in our system of bringing medicines to the public.
