Summary

Containing discoveries heralded as greater than the wheel or fire, Dianetics has remained a best seller for more than 50 years. And with over 20 million copies in print - generating a movement that spans virtually every country on earth - it's indisputably the most widely read and influential book ever written about the human mind.
Here is the anatomy and full description of the Reactive Mind, the previously unknown source of the nightmares, unreasonable fears, upsets, and insecurities that enslave Man. This book shows you how to get rid of it, and so achieve something Man has previously only dreamed of: the State of Clear.
Dianetics enables you to discover and eradicate these harmful experiences, so they never affect you again, revealing the one person you've always wanted to know: You.

Absolute rubbish! Dangerous ideas.

Other than sometimes stating the obvious this is nothing more than a rambling waste of time. The only scientific fact true of this book is its absolute manure!

Repetitive nonsense

I always thought Dianetics and Scientology were a bit loopy, but before I criticize something I make a point of understanding it first. I chose to listen to Dianetics on audible instead of reading it because of the length. I am about half way through and I can't take it any more. There is a lot of nonsense talk and the word engram is used so often I swear some one gets a commission each time it's read. The basic premise is that there are two minds in each person, the analytical mind and the reactive mind. The analytical mind is rational and makes decisions based on logic. The reactive mind reacts based on fear and aggression, based on past traumatic experiences. This is not rocket science to most people. This is the problem of this book. It takes this simple premise and reiterates it chapter after chapter, paragraph after paragraph, in such a repetitive and boring manner. To keep you excited (asleep really) the author has thrown in lots of gibberish fake science.

Every time I read something I disagree with I at least see something of merit in the authors work, a point of view. I see some reasoned argument for that persons position and I can learn from it. This book is the first time I have walked away understanding nothing. It is clearly trash designed to take your money and provide you with nothing in return. As Orwell said, it is trying to give solidity to pure wind.

1of those reads that is best to see for yourself

So much about Scientology exists in the zeitgeist but dianetics should be analyzed for yourself and see if it works.
