John indeed gave a kind and generous contribution to the PhotoReading book way back in 1993. He also introduced me to the people he worked with in Mexico back in 1995. And they have continued promoting my work since then.
John knows me and he knows the book. I can't explain his forgetting, but then how did Tony Robbins spend five days using my desk as we promoted his work in the Twin Cities in 1983 and forget who I was and claim he never heard of Learning Strategies Corporation the very next year? I should add that when he met me again before introducing me to his group in Las Vegas he said, "Paul Scheele, do I know you?" Funny because he was only 19 when Pete and I promoted him. Today, he is much more mature, spiritually centered, and a great advocate of my work.
Forgetting doesn't make either of them bad guys or throw a pall over anyone's work. That is why John and Tony both continue to be cherished professional colleagues and supporters of the innovative work we do here.
