Dianetics: The Original Thesis is L. Ron Hubbard's first description of Dianetics. Originally circulated in manuscript form to a few friends, it was soon copied and passed hand-to-hand until it literally circled the globe. But the resultant word of mouth only fueled the fire. With thousands of letters requesting more information, Ron concluded the only way to answer all inquiries was with a book. That book was Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, now the all-time bestseller on the mind. Find out what started it all.

Disappointing. Rather than a description of the first principles of the theory of Hubbard's "Dianetics", this volume is closer to an organizational policy manual with a glossary.

Like trying to learn the fundamental principles of physics by reading the membership policy manual of the American Physical Society.

Here's a quick summary of Hubbard's theory of the mind. There's two parts: the irrational emotion, and the rational intellect. You'll get better results if you depend on the second one. Ok, you just saved yourself 3 hours of listening to the CD's.
