The 75th anniversary of David Manners' start in Hollywood was in 2005. The world knew him for his roles in Dracula, The Mummy, Bill of Divorcement, The Black Cat, Last Flight, The Miracle Woman, and over 30 other films from 1930 to 1936.
But David was much more than flickering images on the Silver Screen. David walked away from the fame and riches of Hollywood to find his understanding of the nature of God and the universe.
In the Mojave Desert, at Yucca Loma ranch, he found peace from the Hollywood image machine. He wrote novels and studied religious and metaphysical writings from the East and West. Leaving behind his upbringing in the Anglican and Episcopal Churches, he combined elements of New Thought (Unity, Religious Science, and Christian Science) with Zen, Taoism, and Buddhism.
From 1978 to 1993, David kept journals of his daily meditations about God and living in joy-as life is meant to be. The Wonder Within You presents excerpts from these journals and his newsletters.
Edited and with a biographical introduction by David Morgan Jones, the wisdom of The Wonder Within You is ready to be discovered and experienced.

I love this book. I've read the regular week-by-week books, and this is far and away outstanding. It's personal in so many ways that a normal book cannot be. The development information is not only thorough, but put personally, plus the 3D/4D pictures and videos, journal/letter sections, and everything else make this a great way to really bond with baby and record memories for a lifetime reminiscing. It has a “Did you know?” fact/trivia section that’s fun, a calendar with stickers for your plans and appointments, quotes and stories. So thorough and fun!! Over and above anything else! I highly recommend this book!
