Time Tested Thinking: As It Seems to Me by author David Wilson is a thought-provoking book woven to stimulate readers’ imagination. It is designed to consolidate the author’s own thinking—putting his contemplation into a more concrete form that allows him to crystallize reflections accumulated over the years—and offer insight and inspiration to everyone.

Wilson believes that this book will provide solace, motivation and challenge to its readers as it contains a series of views and opinions on various topics. The pieces within this compilation are written from a personal perspective and represent conclusions he has embraced after a lifetime of observation, experience and consideration. The author intends to present his thoughts from the point of view of a common man—himself—who has been exposed to the general knowledge and experience available to him as a resident of the 20th century Western world. These writings are intended to be very personal, using subjective approach and not to present irrefutable arguments to convince anyone. They are not written to prove someone else is wrong or to be judgmental in any fashion.

Dianne Stewart, a mature, intelligent, everyday person who has read “My Life As I Remember It” and “Time Tested Thinking: As It Seems to Me,” declared: “I think both books are extremely valuable. One is the story of a man, his life, his ups and downs, and his abiding faith in an abiding God, the other, what this man has learned and experienced with that same God.”

Packed with wisdom and inspiration, this book will take readers on a wonderful, insightful and very inspirational literary journey and adventure—a unique travel that will allow them to discover the meaning of life and strengthen their relationship with God.
