It’s All in Your Head was ostensibly written by Jean Stine and Camden Benares. It sold very well and went into several reprintings and book club editions. I’m mentioned in Jean’s dedication and acknowledgements. The truth is that I did all of the research. At the last minute, Camden did not want to do the extensive library research required and, although his name is on the book, he did absolutely none of it. He turned in outdated and unusable research that he dug up from his magazine collection and then refused to do anything more.

I did Camden’s end as a favor to Jean, and basically saw nothing for it except that mention.

That’s life.
