"Really helped me change my life for the better..."

"My life is full of joy sinse
I started taking these courses.

"My name is Patrick. W, 29 years of age. I am incarcerated in Texas at the Price Daniels Unit! I am writing to address those of you who have not taken the Way to Happiness Course, to strongly encourage you to give it a try and never give up!

"The course has really helped me change my life for the better, the way I think and act!! I am a person who never felt like I was in the wrong for anything, and have done some of the most prohibited crimes by law!

"I am not happy about any of the foolish mistakes on my part and I wish I could change them all, but I can't! That's what I thought before taking the course! This course has taught me that I have hope, I can make a new start, and I can undo the negative things I have done by overpowering them with better choices for the rest of life!

"This course has made me look back into my past and see what a fool I made out of myself doing all the stupid illegal things I like to do! I always use to try to justify my every action by trying to put the blame on others saying I was provoked!

"I know now that I control my own actions, and I can walk away from any bad situation that may arise in life and swallow my pride! Pride makes us as humans do stupid things at times. Pride also makes us miss out on some of the best things in life for us! I have learned to bury my pride using this course and how to deal with people peacefully in an immoral environment!

"I am an example of someone who has changed using this course! When people see me, they will see a success story!! I almost gave up on the course because it was pulling out feelings I did not know were there. I was actually hurting because I thought the book was speaking down to me being that I have done basically every negative thing the course talks about!

"With a supervisor who never gave up on me, I kept going and realized the course was saying, despite what I have done in my past, there is not a single person alive who cannot start a new beginning!

"I feel like I am somebody now, and not just something thrown behind barbed wire away from society! In my future, I can actually see the road to happiness now, and I plan to stay on the right road."


"People start to see the change that's a part of you...."

On The Way to Happiness Course...

"It was December 2002, just before Christmas, when I was first introduced by a friend about The Way to Happiness. After he explained it to me I was eager to start my journey to happiness. Now it's time for me to pass on my teachings.

"I first would like to give special thanks to my supervisor for guiding me in the right direction when I got a little off course. Allowing me to make that adjustment and to really grasp the fruits that were being offered, truly sent me on to a road to happiness.

"As I continued to travel and tighten up any loose ends, my confidence and self-esteem along with my pride also grew - and grew. I can really say that the only way one can enjoy the true meaning of wisdom is through experience.

"This course has that and many, many other gifts for those who are willing to just make the change for themselves and eventually others. Right at the start people start to see the change that's a part of you. Criminon has this to offer anyone who is ready to make that sacrifice. I personally will pass this course along to others, especially family and friends, in or out of prison."

"Some of the Best Things in Life are Free..."

"Initially, I must say that during my 18 years of incarceration I found The Way to Happiness Course by Criminon to be the absolute best correspondence course offered to prisoners. The material is well written, useful and presented in a very understandable manner. My course supervisor, Regina, was both professional and caring.

"Perhaps the most important thing I learned on this course is that all life is precious. During my days of darkness I lacked consideration for my own life, which reflected on the way I treated other people. As I studied The Way to Happiness, I realized that life is a majestic gift which should be cherished and enjoyed.

"My new found appreciation for life translates into a better quality of daily living for me because other people respond well to my positive attitude. This in turn evolves into a better environment and affects everyone equally.

"I used to be a believer in the popular saying that 'nothing in life is free,' until I discovered The Way to Happiness Course. I now believe that some of the best things in life are free for those who have the courage to seek a better life.

"I offer my sincere gratitude to the Criminon staff and recommend The Way to Happiness to all people seeking a better way of life." -

"I have become a better person..."

"When I first enrolled on The Way to Happiness Course I wasn't sure of what or if there would be anything useful that I could learn to better my living skills. I didn't see how something so simplistic could help me gain knowledge and understanding of everyday living. I soon realized for me it wasn't about learning a better way of living - it was about RE-LEARNING! How to recognize and develop the basic fundamental living techniques to assist you through the daily journey of life itself.

"Throughout the course I began to realize just how much "common sense" had lapsed in my way of living. Compassion, love, trust, dignity and integrity were nothing more than words in an unused dictionary. The meaning and understanding of the Golden Rule - Do unto others as you'd have done unto you - was lost. I was living in my own convoluted world of misguidance, misunderstanding and deceit.

"By working through the course materials and attending group discussions on the course I have become a better person.

"Thank you Criminon!"


"Powerful stuff! ...the most informative and useful material I have read..."

"The Handling Drugs Course provided by Criminon is outstanding. Having had personal experiences with drugs there was nothing more enlightening than having the technical terms of these experiences explained in such an understandable way.

"As soon as I started to study the materials in the course it was as if scales had fallen away from my eyes. I was so impressed that I rushed to share this enlightening information with others I knew who could relate to the effects of drugs. There is nothing like understanding why you or someone else acts the way they do.

"The Handling Drugs Course not only answered the question 'why addicts behave the way they do,' but also informs you in depth how to help an addict recognize that he has a problem with drugs. Help with the withdrawal - with mental exercises, nutrition and the cleansing of the body. There is even information to help addicts reclaim their self-esteem and their self-worth.

"Powerful stuff! Some of the most informative and useful material I have read."

"This course has heightened my ambition and will to succeed..."

On the Conditions of Life Course...

"By far, this course has given me great insight on how to keep myself in a progressive mode throughout my life. For one day I will jump start my own business venture and the key to its success is the actual and specific application of the formulas drawn out in this course. This course should be included in the curriculum of every business school offered at any college.

"The course has not only given me insight on how one should perform his job duties but it has also made me aware of where I was in my work - cabinetry.

"I am confident that I will be successful in any job setting that I am a part of. I understand that sometimes one must start at the bottom and work his way to the middle, then the top while all the time being conscious of the conditions one must apply.

"This course is just like... Outstanding! Once a person studies and applies the course formulas, one will be mentally dressed for success. This course has heightened my ambition and will to succeed."
