"Dianetics" is not some positive-thinking fad or feel-better-quick scheme. It is the most powerful and effective book on the human mind ever published. While other self-help titles come and go, "Dianetics" has stood the test of time for over fifty-six years for one reason: It works. Pioneering in its concepts and techniques, L. Ron Hubbard's "Dianetics" explains how people's lives are adversely affected by the single source of all of their problems, stress, unhappiness and self-doubt - it is called the "reactive mind". And "Dianetics" gets rid of the reactive mind. It is the only thing that does. With Dianetics, one can regain self-confidence, eliminate psychosomatic illnesses, abandon fears and obsessions, put an end to negative thoughts and unwanted feelings, and be himself again.

About L. Ron Hubbard

L. Ron Hubbard's remarkable writing career spanned more than half a century of intense literary achievement and creative influence. Astonishingly prolific, he produced more than 550 published works of fiction and nonfiction. These ranged broadly in literary genres from action/adventure, western, mystery and suspense to science fiction and fantasy, and in subject areas of enduring social, cultural and philosophical significance from self-improvement and the spiritual, ethical and moral nature of man to education, drug treatment and rehabilitation, and business management, among others. Though he was first and foremost a writer, his life experiences and travels in all corners of the globe were wide and diverse. His insatiable curiosity and personal belief that one should live life as a professional led to a lifetime of extraordinary accomplishment. He was also an explorer and ethnologist, mariner, pilot, filmmaker, photographer, philosopher, educator, composer and musician.

Review quote

"The impact of Dianetics means the world will never be the same again. History has become a race between Dianetics and catastrophe. Dianetics will win if enough people are challenged, in time, to understand it." -- Fredric L. Schuman Professor, Williams College "There is something new ... called Dianetics. A new science which works with the invariability of physical science in the field of the human mind. From all indications, it will prove to be as revolutionary for humanity as the first caveman's discovery and utilization of fire." -- Walter Winchell National Columnist, April 1950
