Farewell Wayne Dyer
Charismatic and camera-friendly, Wayne Dyer became well known after the publication of his first best-selling book, Your Erroneous Zones, in 1976. Since then, he has been a proponent of such typical New Age concepts as "living in the moment" and making "choices that bring us to a higher awareness," as he told a reporter for the St. Petersburg Times in 1994. In addition to books, Dyer has used audio recordings and the broadcast media to his advantage, securing his position as a cultural icon and leading light in the areas of motivation and self-awareness.

Dwyer was diagnosed with lymphocytic leukemia in 2009. He died in August 2015 at the age of 75.
