Ray Wilson is an academically trained social observer -- a sociologist -- who had a fortuitous vantage point for observing the phenomena and people shaping American society from mid-twentieth century onward. Just young enough to miss the shooting in the Korean War, his path began in the cold war military, taking him through the segregated south and then active civilian involvement in the civil rights, great society, and civil unrest eras, made him a professional analyst, strategist, and operations director in the "wars" on crime and on poverty, and in the consumer and quality revolutions. Roles in government, industry, private business, and non-profit sectors, personally involved him with leaders and issues at every level on the national stage.
Seriously academic, seriously professional, and seriously spiritual, Ray Wilson is also seriously funny, a talented comedy writer and winner of many stand-up comedy competitions. He is a competitive runner, explaining his now frequent age-category victories with "It's easier when the competition's dead."
He is also the author of "Bought, Not Sold: Single Agency, Buyers' Brokers, Flat Fees, and the Consumer Revolution in Real Estate" (paperback, 1997) widely recognized as a definitive critique of the real estate agency industry. It is available through book retailers everywhere, and an updated Smashword Ebook version is currently planned.

The Rosary: Prayer for Thinking Christians
by Ray Wilson
This work has the Nihil Obstat of a Catholic diocese and the cover endorsements of reputable Catholic scholars. The express contention that the Rosary is for "thinking" Christians is made here by a recovering skeptic whose epiphany was thrust on him in a modern highway re-enactment of Paul's Road to Damascus encounter. The incident report is credible and the book is enlightening.
