Dr Dyer's articles have also appeared in hundreds of magazines and newspapers worldwide.
Dyer had a somewhat troubled upbringing, his early years having been spent living in foster homes and orphanages where he had to learn to be self reliant. These early-life experiences were no doubt influential in the choices that he made later in life. He served in the Navy for 4 years and upon leaving at age 22 he began studying at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, after which he began his own career as an educator. He taught students from high school level through to medical students. Dyer went on to receive his doctorate in counseling psychotherapy from the University of Michigan and Wayne State University.
Along with his library of published self-help classics, Dyer also produces his own audio books, taped lectures and video seminars. He is widely known for his inspirational public speaking abilities and has shared the stage with other self help experts like Deepak Chopra. Dr Wayne Dyer has appeared on radio and television stations internationally, including "The Today Show", "The Tonight Show", and "The Oprah Winfrey Show" programs, and has been interviewed in dozens of popular magazines
Despite his childhood experiences, Dr. Dyer has overcome many obstacles to make his dreams come true. Today he spends much of his time showing others how to do the same. When he's not traveling the globe delivering his uplifting message, he is writing from his home in Maui, Hawaii., where he lives with his wife and their 8 children.
