This was a really good book. I can see why so many people find it helpful, it gives you something you can do about it, whatever "it" is to you. definitely recommend it, worth a shot.

I listened, and all I heard was blah, blah, blah. I was looking forward to this book, but it felt like mental gymnastics trying to extract its premise and hear the message. Maybe some books are just better in a written format.

I listened to this audio book just to see what dianetics was all about. Very interesting, and was worth my time.

Anything that is different or not Christian is a cult

It is so sad when we live in a world where people can say whatever they want about anything they want without proper knowledge or knowing what they are talking about. If something is new or can really help and change the world, then it is bad or a cult. Just because something doesn't revolve around God or Christianity doesn't mean it is bad or a cult. It is people that think like this, that killed innocent people during the crusades, the witch trials, and Waco. Just because you don't understand what Dianetics is all about doesn't mean you have the right to say it is evil and a cult. We are never going to over come hate, and misunderstanding as long as we play petty mind games. Scientology is not evil, and it is not a cult. L. Ron Hubbard was here to help people, he devoted his life trying to help people. His works can help you if you believe they can. But if you want to believe petty lies then no one can help you anyway. This book can help you. I Recommend it.

Author Details

Hubbard, L. Ron

L. Ron Hubbard's legendary writing career encompassed more than 250 novels, short stories and screenplays in every major genre including 19 New York Times bestsellers.\n\nA seasoned world traveler before attending college where he studied engineering and took one of the earliest courses in molecular phenomena, he went on to achieve renown as a pioneer aviator, master mariner and flag bearing expedition leader of the Explorers Club.

In the 1930s and 1940s, he was a top-line high-production writer for the popular pulp fiction magazines. His stories, many reflecting the diversity of his own life experiences, exuded a sense of realistic adventure with sharply convincing characters and dialogue that brought them vividly alive and attracted a wide readership.

When he entered the field of science fiction, he wrote high-concept stories that were crowded with action and suspense. Along with a handful of other innovatively imaginative writers, he helped lead the way in creating the Golden Age of Science Fiction and laying the foundation for the genre's continuing popularity and entertainment appeal.

Among his bestselling and classic speculative fiction trendsetters are Fear, Final Blackout, Ole Doc Methuselah, and his crowning epics, Battlefield Earth and the Mission Earth series, which together dominated American bestseller lists for 153 weeks.
