Scholarly presentation of a most workable subject

This very well-narrated book expresses basic principles of the function and repair of the human mind in intelligent and measured terms. It was written in a much more literate age; some modern readers may therefore need to make liberal use of its glossary in studying the book. Be patient, don't rush it, let the material soak in, and you will be well rewarded.

worth a listen if interested in this area

a rather basic overview of the concepts of scientology but a good choice for someone who just wants to understand it a little better or for someone like me who has an interest in dozens of subjects

Curious So I Read It

It was Ok though I can see how these theories were popular in 1950, a few of the basics I suppose are useful.

Required Reading

If you have already read (or listened to) Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, then this book will five you greater insight into the theories and research that led to Book One (DMSMH). If you have yet to read Dianetics, then start with this book. I read Dianetics first, and although I learned a lot, I wish I had first read Evolution of a Science.

Enjoy!
