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.

I would suggest this book to anyone who wants a peak inside the Scientology philosophy.
It has such a pleasantly inspiring way of explaining the simple
truths that make life worth living. If I am feeling out of sorts
I start reading this book and in no time at all I am feeling good
I recommend you read this book and keep it by your bedside to pick
up frequently. The more I read it the more I like it. Few books
are like this. One's that are become classics to be handed down
the generations. Our children need this information. Don't miss
out on the beautiful wisdom shared by one of this century's most
Let me know what you get out of it.
The format is very attractive, with large print and plenty of white space, making reading easier. That is worth mentioning because Scientology's main text, "Dianetics", which they refer to as "book one" is a near-unreadable slab of turbid text, so although it may seem to be the logical place to start your enquiries, you will need courage and determination to tackle it. At least in this book, the format helps ease you through the painful prose.
As for the actual content of this book, it can be stated firmly that it has no merit. For example, in the chapter "On Marriage" we are told that a person's sanity can be gauged by the speed with which they answer questions. A happy marriage results from the partners having the same level of sanity. Therefore, to find your soul mate, select someone who answers questions at the same speed as you do! If you really want to choose your marriage partner in that manner, good luck.
One more example: children must be allowed to do what they want with their own property. So, if your children destroy their clothes and bedroom furniture, "it is none of your business". Again, good luck with that approach.
This book is not a serious philosophical work, nor does it have any value as a self-help book. If for some reason you do decide to read it, please be aware that there are many books critical of Scientology, some written by former prominent members, and you might want to read one of those also, to get a balanced view.
