Great Bend, KS, February 02, 2013 --( Outskirts Press, Inc. has published The Higher Level Thinker: The New View by Douglas Reiser. The author's most recent book to date is a 5.5 x 8.5 paperback in the self-help, personal growth and success category and is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The webpage at was launched simultaneously with the book's publication.

The Higher Level Thinker is the book that can make a difference in readers’ lives and in the lives of those around them by awakening their minds to search for and find self-empowerment.

Author Douglas Reiser believes that our Creator has given us the most wonderful gift and the most powerful tool known to mankind: the mind. If used with unselfish intent, this gift can solve or prevent almost every negative issue you face in life. He labels one who chooses to enhance and explore this gift as a Higher Level Thinker, (HLT).

Focusing on the “Trickle-down-theory” of life, this book takes one on a mental journey in search for the foundation of self-empowerment. It reviews the mental levels in the chapter of “self-reflections.” It creates awareness of “your reasons” for thinking at a higher level and takes a detour through the “eye-opening” land of reality. He analyzes some mental tools that can be taken on the trip through the transition chapter into the real world with real life situations.

Once in the real world, readers will go above their lives and create that higher view mentality as they look down at all aspects and stages of their lives. From this new view, they will create self-awareness, which in turn will prevent bad events from happening, and they can seek better solutions in the bigger picture below.

The author’s mindset throughout this book is that negative issues happen and bad decisions are made. However, the overwhelming spirit that comes to light shows that through thinking, positive outcomes can occur.

Readers’ emotions most likely will ride high throughout this book. Inspiration will lead to denial, then, hopefully, with the mind wide open with the examples given, one’s internal sight will lead to self-empowerment. Once aware of one’s own mental strength, one will become stronger and more confident in outsmarting the negatives and begin creating positive actions forward.

The final powerful reward is that nothing bad happened, and the building can begin. One’s life will now have a purpose and should become more peaceful and self-fulfilled. Douglas Reiser believes that if one absorbs the deeper meaning in this simple to read book, it will change one’s life.
