The Autobiography of Jack Woodford
Contains a previously unpublished long biographic sketch of Woodford!
The first paperback appearance of that fabulous book, AKA "Autobiography of an American Sex Novelist." Inaccessible and only haphazardly distributed when it was published over 26 years ago, here is the story of the man who taught many of this nation's top writers (Heinlein, Bradbury, Pournelle, Peter Danielson, et al.) how to do it.

How to Make Your Friends and Murder Your Enemies
Or Telesthesia, the Ancient Art of Mind Control
Did you ever wonder what the Russians did at chess tournaments? Ever heard of people "scudding" at a card game? Let Jack Woodford explain in his last fabulous Rabelaisian jolt at the world.
Possibly the most unusual book published anywhere! Jack draws on his vast knowledge of psychology, parapsychology, Oriental mysticism, quantum physics and throws in a smattering of Christian Science to teach you Telesthesia, the ancient art of mind control. Here for the first time is a how-to on "scudding" or thought transference. A frightening, fantastic potpourri, lustful, enjoyable, funny, and uncanny. How to get your neighbor's wife, the boss's job, or pull your enemy's head off.
