About the Author:

Like most compulsive controllers, Danny Miller was always driven to succeed. He graduated from UCLA with honors in business administration and finished in the top 5 percent of his class at the UCLA School of Law.While still in his 20s, he became a popular real estate instructor in the UCLA extension program and later published a critically acclaimed, best-selling professional book, How to Invest in Real Estate Syndicates (Dow Jones-Irwin) He also founded the California Institute of Real Estate Education, which offered state-licensed seminars to thousands of real estate professionals.Financial success came early as well. Celebrities and wealthy people entrusted him with large sums to invest on their behalf. By his mid-30s he could afford to live in the exclusive Old Bel Air section of Los Angeles, only a few doors away from Sylvester Stallone and just up the street from where Elvis Presley had once lived.But for all his achievements and success, Danny had no sense of inner peace and serenity. How could he? He was imprisoned by his fears, anger and anxieties and thus not open to the wonders all around him.It took a long series of personal setbacks, but at last Danny began a new life journey based on letting go of control. He tried to go with the ups and downs and twists and turns of life, instead of resisting them and trying to control people and events.He learned effective tools and techniques for losing control in important areas such as family, parenting, love and romance, the creative arts, sports, and the workplace. He became an accomplished fine artist, a published poet, a champion tournament tennis player, a happily married man, and much wiser parent--all while cutting his work time by more than half.Thus, through letting go of control, Danny found a different and more profound kind of success--an internal, core sense of well-being.

Review:

"The guidance in this book is something I'd recommend to anyone struggling with control issues.    I found invaluable information and advice on how to let go of the need to control." --POSITIVELY PRESENT (March, 2011)

"In a chaotic, unpredictable world that's frequently beyond our control, Losing Control, Finding Serenity offers welcome encouragement and validation for going with the flow of life as it is." --The Monthly Aspectarian

"Down-to-earth and honest, the book is full of psychological and spiritual insight. It is also full of real world solutions for reconnecting with the natural flow of life and with our personal truth. This one will be terrific for 12-steppers." --NEW AGE RETAILER (May-June, 2011) 

"Daniel Miller has done an amazing job in delving deeply into the crevices of how most of us would need to be in control, not always realizing how it rules and affects our lives and even more so--the lives and happiness of others. Daniel has clearly lived it, and has learned from it, and has designed a formula to teach people how to change these controls by finding, understanding, and releasing issues one step at a time. A must read for everyone! --IN LIGHT TIMES
