"Mastering Ourselves" is Dr. King's exploration of the inner struggle for good and evil that occurs within every human's experience.

According to Dr. King, this can only be overcome through identifying and replacing one's own weaknesses. He also suggests finding a profitable way to use leisure time coupled with a devotional life and continuous prayer.
