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 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.

Format: Paperback
Well, Self Analysis and I are old buddies going back about thirty years. There are so many principles that I had forgotten about or had re-discovered in reading the book and doing the exercises.

Hubbard's Science of Survival emphasized concentrating on the pleasure moments in the person and in yourself. In Self Analysis, he gives the way of doing that. Going over the various kinds of recall, such as imagination, general incidents and such to better know ourselves was really a treat to read about and to remember.

The chapter on "On Our Efforts of Immortality" was very interesting as he describes life force as another kind of energy and its purposes and he echoes what he talked about in SOS - that life must procure pleasure and avoid pain. Good advice!

Another principle I enjoyed was the concept that many of our fears are really merely shadows and like the natives who catch fish with shadows, we usually mock up or others mock up these flimsy traps for us. All we really have to do is disagree and get some auditing.

Also the book helped rehabilitate what I liked about Self Analysis and its simple yet effective technique in bringing people up and not having to live with their painful or sorrowful memories.

What I really liked about this book was that it wasn't a lot of jibberish designed to make your head swim. Just very short chapters followed by practical actions you can do in your own home. Want to improve your emotional tone? Want to improve your memory? Want to feel and be more alive? This is the book to read and use. It changed my life for the better, for good

...are they not all bad religions and good philosophies?

This is my second Hubbard book and I have still yet to find why the masses attempts to defame him. What is with the media and the ignorant masses?! In actuality, Hubbard's philosophy is quite profound and invigorating. Scientology itself is not for me, I am an atheist/transhumanist, I am just a lover of all works of philosophy. From Hubbard trying to reel people into Scientology, likewise with the Scientologists themselves, is probably what has misrepresented Hubbard's literary work, just as Christians have that of Jesus, although he was probably illiterate which is why people had to scirbe for him. Religion is truly the spoiler here of some great philosophies on life and existence.

This may sound cliché, but this book has done wonders for me. I am not spiritual or religious, but I am a supporter of synchronicity. Before and during the time I was reading this book I was going through some introspective issues, and with little success at finding out what was wrong with me. Then when I arrived at pg. 35, sure enough I found my answer. I am not saying this will be the same experience for everyone, but this aided me greatly. As I continued I began to receive more and more information about my personal issues that were identified in the explanation of various thematic issues.

The book itself is really short due to the bulk of it actually being questions related to introspection exercises. As far as the technique goes, I questioned it at first, but after practicing a nominal amount I really felt relief. Needless to say, if one had the discipline and time to do this everyday it would work. These exercises even calibrate your patience and I think it is an essential tool for anyone with a short fuse.

This book contains the best memory exercises there are. I have looked at many other memory enhancement courses and books but this is the best.
The exercises are simple and easy to understand. About 60% of the book are lists of things to remember and each item in a list is matched to sensory perceptions. For example: Recall a time you had a holiday and match it to smell. You might get the smell of turkey in the oven or maybe apple pie. 30 or 40 minutes a day works great to improve your outlook on life and enhance your memory. Simple, but it works.
I owned this book in 1986 but lost it in a move. I am very pleased that I was able to find a copy of this book on Amazon.

This book is almost all exercises that get you to take a look at incidents in your life. I found it to be fun and also surprised me at how many things I remembered that I had completely forgotten. Most of us have a "set" of memories that we keep or reflect on... after you do these exercises, let's just say you will have hundreds more than you had before.

I can see how this would be therapeutic for almost anyone, and especially those who are interested in having as much of their memory and awareness functioning! I have never found a time when I didn't have the use for a few extra IQ points or insight.

My recommendation is to read it and then do the exercises. They are fun and enlightening. It is an interesting "take" to call the book Self Analysis, as when you are done with the lists, you do have a much more thorough understanding about yourself, your life, and how it has taken the twists and turns it has. So I consider that this is a very valid therapy with an accurate title. Doing something about the situation is so much more effective than just talking about it.

If you try it I am pretty well certain you will find it extremely valuable. You'll find yourself cheerful for no reason other than you are alive and experiencing life.
