About the Author

L. Ron Hubbard is the founder of Scientology. He has described his philosophies in more than 5,000 writings, including dozens of books, and three thousand tape recorded lectures. Those who regularly employ his teachings to improve themselves and help their fellows come from all walks of life. The universal acclaim for the man — including thousands of awards and recognitions from individuals and groups and the unprecedented popularity of his works among all people — is but one indicator of the effectiveness of his technologies. More importantly, there are millions of people around the world who consider they have no greater friend.

More About the Author

With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 280 million copies of his works in circulation, L. Ron Hubbard is among the most acclaimed 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.

A fly swatter at the dollar store cost a dollar, this book only cost 93 cents so as a fly swatter I would recommend purchasing this book.
James Houston
This book has short chapters, and everything I read just makes so much sense.

The new slant on life is one of my favorite books by Mr.Hubbard.
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
again.

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
admired humanitarians.

This was one of the first books I read on the subject of Scientology, along with Scientology: The Fundamentals of Thought (English), they both gave me enought information on the subject of Scientology, to determine it a something worth devoting my life to studying.

Several Topics Include:

*Man's Search for His Soul
*Two Rules for Happy Living
*Happiness and Interest
*How to Live with Children
*On Marriage
*The Anatomy of Failure
*Confronting

*Past, Present and Future

*Records of the Mind Are Permanent
*The Race Against Man's Savage Instincts
*Justice
*What Is Knowledge?
*Man from Mud
*The Psychiatrist at Work
*Honest People Have Rights, Too

I would suggest this book to anyone who wants a peak inside the Scientology philosophy.

The reason I bought this book is to participate in the extension programs that Scientology offers. I find you get more out of books like this and can understand them better. I have also taken two other courses as well and found them both interesting. This book is also a rewrite of a previous edition and several correction were made so it is more easily understood. After reading most of the book I find it most helpful in further explaining and answering questions about dianetics and scientology. I feel it is one of their key books not to miss!!

7 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Insider on September 5, 2012
Format: Paperback
This is a great book for newcomers to Scientology and oldtimers alike. I use it all the time and often refer my clients to it. You have heard much about Scientology. This is what it is really about, the basic philosophy of it. You are in for some surprises. This is not philosophy one reads about in college and forgets. This is very useful data about the basics of life that you can actually USE. I challenge anyone to honestly read this, apply it and not have their lives markedly improve. I don't think it can be done.

Let me know what you get out of it.

This book is so easy to understand ! I read Dianetics and it's not the easiest book to read, it requires a lot of concentration. This book has short chapters, and everything I read just makes so much sense. I think anyone should really read this book. If you're curious about Scientology, this is the book that will give you answers for sure.

Maybe I was too tired when I started to read this or maybe not in the right mindset. Whatever it was I good not stay awake or focus on the words. When I did get back to it it just did not spark or ignite my mind or spirit.

yea, right. Well, Don't waste your money. Buy 'three Billy Goats Gruff" instead. You'll get more out of that.

This book really opens your eyes and give you so much information. You really step away from this book with a new look at things and an understanding of life, it's quite powerful!
