The books of L. Ron Hubbard, philosopher, humanitarian, Founder of the Church of Scientology, represent a “route” to living a better life.
Knowing yourself and others is key in finding, associating and working with people you can trust. The book Science of Survival, the next book to read after Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, provides the tools to do so.
Dianetics revealed the existence of the hitherto unknown “reactive mind” that enslaves mankind. In Science of Survival, Mr. Hubbard covers the interaction between life force and the physical universe of matter energy space and time. He gives a clear and straightforward description of the tone Scale of emotions and covers why one descends on that tone scale and how to elevate the individual to higher levels.The book is built around the now legendary “Chart of Human Evaluation,” which provides a detailed description of the reactions, traits and behavioral patterns of an individual at each emotional level.
This book can be found in at any Church of Scientology or Mission and is also available through lending libraries and bookstores.
Science of Survival is the essential handbook for any person who would benefit from learning to predict human behavior in life.
And if it seems “exaggerated” … try it!
