Review-A-Day

"The first thing you notice about Dianetics is that it is spectacularly dull. L. Ron Hubbard promises, in this seemingly endless treatise, that his 'modern science of mental health' will cure everything from schizophrenia to arthritis, claims for which he presents no credible evidence whatsoever — unless you consider merely insisting that you've got evidence to be the same thing as offering it. But I am here to testify that Dianetics is a phenomenal remedy for at least one widespread affliction: insomnia." Laura Miller, Salon.com (read the entire Salon.com review)

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

If you've ever felt there was something holding you back in life, ruining your plans and stopping you from being who you want to be, you were right.

The fact is, there is a single source of all your problems, stress, unhappiness and self-doubt. It's called the reactive mind — the hidden part of your mind that stores all painful experiences and then uses them against you.

Dianetics gets rid of the reactive mind. It's the only thing that does.

With over 20,000,000 copies in dozens of languages, Dianetics has remained a bestseller for more than fifty years. Now used in more than 150 nations, Dianetics brings dramatic and permanent improvement to people all over the world.

Read Dianetics and discover:

  • The real reason for unexplained pains, negative emotions and unhappy relationships in your life.
  • Exactly what is destroying your belief in yourself and how Dianetics helps you get rid of it so you become more you;
  • The precise technology that blows away the barriers in your life — forever.
Don't live with insecurity, negative thoughts and irrational behavior. Use Dianetics and get rid of your reactive mind.

Have you ever wondered how your mind works?

Your mind records pictures of everything you experience throughout life. These "mental image pictures" ARE your memory.

Through mental image pictures you can see the past, hear what was said, feel, taste and smell things from long ago or just from yesterday. Your perception of mental image pictures — however vague at first — can be sharpened with Dianetics.

Mental image pictures are used continually to solve problems, imagine and remember things. L. Ron Hubbard's #1 New York Times bestseller, Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, will tell you much more about mental image pictures, how the mind works and even the purpose of the mind.

Review:

" Dianetics can remove the aberrations which make man a selfish and anti-social creature.... It holds hope that man may at last dispense with the ugly institution of war, because wars are the end product of social aberrations at the national level... Dianetics can rectify the mental short circuits which bring accidental death, can increase longevity, minimize the pain of child-bearing and present Mankind with vast new intellectual vistas..." Los Angeles Daily News

Review:

"...the wave of interest in the subject Dianetics which has swept the country." Publisher's Weekly

Synopsis:

What causes people to feel stress, depression and negative emotions? What blocks intelligence, confidence and ability to achieve goals? This book contains the key to a factual understanding of exactly how the mind works.

I found this to be a very useful and practical self-help book.

To get the maximum benefit from the book, you have to follow the procedures it outlines (in the same way if you were reviewing a cookery book, you should try some the recipes as they are presented).

Using these techniques I increased my confidence and communication and the principle it outlines secured me a position with a major international company.

I highly recommend it!

Best regards,
Dr. Richard Fallon.
