More About the Author

With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 320 million copies of his works in circulation, L. Ron Hubbard is among the most enduring and widely read authors of our time. As a leading light of American Pulp Fiction through the 1930s and '40s, he is further among the most influential authors of the modern age. Indeed, from Ray Bradbury to Stephen King, there is scarcely a master of imaginative tales who has not paid tribute to L. Ron Hubbard.

Then too, of course, there is all L. Ron Hubbard represents as the Founder of Dianetics and Scientology and thus the only major religion born in the 20th century.

While, as such, he presents the culmination of science and spiritual technology as embodied in the religion of Scientology.

This book comprises the many aspects of ethics, and explains them all. Mr. Hubbard starts by explaining the difference between "ethics" and "justice", thing misunderstood by many.
Follows an explanation of the various conditions and how one moves through them. The conditions are, in my viewpoint, the single most important tool one can use in all areas of his life. One is always in a certain condition, and his goal is usually to go up, to do well in all areas of his life: in his relationships, in his work, and privately, on his own. Reading this book one can learn how to achieve success though the correct application of conditions, which will help decide what specific actions to take to handle tough situations or keep up very good statistics.

There are other very useful tools in this book, and all will help deal with life better and be a better person, and a happier person!

I have been able to apply these tools in my life and it has been very helpful. I have to thank Mr. Hubbard for making them available to us, as thanks to their use I have a happy, fulfulling life, a great marriage, and I feel like I can handle things much better.

Format: Hardcover
L Ron Hubbard is possibly the most controversial man of the 21st century.

I read this book while researching into supernatual phenonema like near-death-experiences, psychics, out of body experiences, as Hubbard made several claims in this area.

While the book doesn't talk about that, or Scientology techniques, it is an interesting read. You won't find philosophical arguments here - the emphasis is on workability. Hubbard's philosophy (which is a version of utilitarianism based on survival) is intuitively a better ethical philopsophy than anything I studied at Oxford.

I also gained an understanding of why Scientology charges money for its services, and found Hubbard's arguments about why people attack Scientology interesting (though I'm not in a position to judge them).

The book is also a good management book - on par at least with the One Minute Manager.

Hubbard was an intelligent and interesting character. If he was a charlatan then was certainly a complete genius who continues to deceive today.

On the other hand his principles seem sound and aimed at improving the human condition.

This book has been a useful tool for me in my business. It shows how to track statistics, and how to evaluate those statistics.

Once the statistics have been examined, then specific tools are given to increase them over time.

My business has increased by 8 times since implementing these tools! I am no longer in a mystery about how to increase business, when to promote, when to cut back... the formulas given are clear, and easy to implement, AND THEY WORK!

I am a VERY satisfied customer!

Format: Hardcover
I Have read through this book countless times and have found it to be an essential tool for living in this society. The book is absolutely invaluble, and anyone who thinks otherwise is not nuts, they simply haven't looked at the bigger picture. Most people that slam Scientology aren't wrong from thier point of view, but they fail to look at everything there is to look at, which consequently makes them look rather silly and disappoints me in that our society commonly slams what they do not understand. Stop fearing Scientology, it will not bite you !! It may even help you, you decide...
