Have you lost your marbles? The question may imply that you are not thinking clearly, not making sense, or that your brain may need to be rewired. Marble Mindfulness explores the opposite of losing your marbles. It explains how marbles can be used to determine the reality in individual and family relationships. Author George Toth, a therapist who has been using marbles as a diagnostic tool for more than forty years, provides a simple, step-by-step technique to interpret marbles and other small objects. Quick, creative, and accurate, this method will help you identify conscious and subconscious messages about strength of relationships, personality traits, feelings, beliefs, values, and place within the family or group. In addition, Toth shows how marbles can be used as a tool for assessing and improving team sports performance, small business goals, and corporate functioning. With charts, instructions, and case studies included, Marble Mindfulness can assist you in unlocking hidden messages, gaining important insights about you and your family, and making plans for change.

I have written this book because information on this company and its production items is sparse and very confusing. The confusion arises from the fact that its marbles appear in boxes and bags of two other major companies: Akro Agate Company and Master Marble Company. I am hoping to clear it up, to provide information to distinguish its items from those of the other two, and to provide reliable pricing for Master Class Company products. Some pricing is also included for Master Marble Company.
