"The optimum computing machine is a subject which many of us have studied. It might be somewhat astonishing, at first, to conceive of such a computer. But the fact is, the machine is in existence. There are billions of them in use today and used in the past. In fact, you've got one. For we are dealing with the human mind." —L. Ron Hubbard

  • Find out how the optimum computing machine—the mind—really works
  • Learn how wrong answers enter into the mind and cause further wrong answers

Intriguing

This goes against modern mental health practices. I see why it's controversial. It's against drugging and slams modern mental health as unworkable. But the book made a lot of sense. The vocabulary was tough to understand at times.

interesting read

It was an engaging read, even up until the end when I gathered a sense to question the stance and full spectrum of messages the author conveys

bunch of words piled together by a paranoid schizo

anyone deriving healing from this book is in dire need of lithium injections. there are no metrics presented, yet the author refers to many different units...many times in the same sentence. if it seems confusing, it's because it is written by someone who was very confused and obviously paranoid. This book is nothing more than a madman trying to treat himself by fanticising about hurting or torturing others. There is zero science in any of the ramblings of this author. I only wish I could get back both my money and time.

Garbage

Inspired me to write my own book if this garbage got published and followed my millions. Yikes. He honestly sounds like a crazy person.
