"This book teaches us how to lead a more meaningful and happy life." - David Servan-Schreiber, M.D.,
author of Anticancer

There are many experiences we don't remember, especially from our early childhood. But around age five, we undergo a transition wherein we become aware of ourselves, of our memories, and of the passage of time and our own mortality. This moment is what Presles calls the "leap of consciousness," and it is what defines us as humans.

The Power of Consciousness shows us how we can use this awareness to better ourselves and provides us with the tools to figure out who we are, and who we can become. Renowned psychologist Philippe Presles explains how to use the power of our consciousness to build our identity, make decisions, and achieve our goals. Using both psychological research and interviews with soldiers, survivors of near death experiences, and high-level athletes who have lived through the most extreme situations, Presles shows us that the ability to master our consciousness, and thus improve our lives, lies within each of us. This thoughtful and accessible guide to self-discovery and personal development provides an invaluable path to a happier and healthier existence.

Author's biography - Versilio

Versilio is an editor who publishes authors of novels and non-fiction works, both literary and commercial.

Versilio’s vocation is to concentrate on a restricted number of projects in order to be able to accompany them from their initial conception to the final manuscript, thus ensuring both their digital and paper editions with its partners (Robert Laffont, Albin Michel, Flammarion, Gallimard…).

In order to satisfy the ever-changing needs of authors and readers within a constantly evolving market not only in terms of both communication and direct distribution of information, but also with regard to social networks, Versilio created the Slog. A combination of a S[ite] and a [B]log, a Slog is designed to showcase an author's creative world, to keep readers permanently up to date with their favourite authors and give them a chance to share and discuss their interests with an online community.

Furthermore, in line with the growing demand from online bookstores and the explosion of new media and social networks, Versilio's team includes not only all competences necessary for digital publishing (software engineering, designing, production, marketing) but also for the production of audio and video contents contributing to their promotion and enrichment (podcasts, author interviews, book trailers, advertisements and animations).

Thanks to the implementation of these new solutions in their dynamic set-up Versilio regularly collaborates with leading players in various fields (including Amazon, Kobo, Fnac, Google, Apple, Twitter, &c.) to promote both their authors and their authors’ works.

Versilio shares offices with Susanna Lea Associates in London, Paris and New York, and therefore benefits from an international perspective on the world of books, and the challenges brought about by the evolution of digital publishing.
