Dr. Robert Wheeler developed a keen interest in the view people have about meaning and purpose in their lives during 20 years of military experience working with people of various cultures as an infantryman, aviator, engineer, advisor, and research & development coordinator.

For another 20 years, he filled positions in academia where his major work was research about personality characteristics that contribute to health, well-being, and performance. He developed measuring instruments and performed analyses for health promotion programs to assist participants, determine effectiveness, and increase knowledge of health enhancement and quality of life improvement. Although now retired, he continues to research about the basic human drive for meaning and purpose in their existence.

In 2014 Dr. Wheeler set a new Guinness World Record as the oldest man to climb to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa. He has added this story to his new book, The Call of the Mountain.
