    "Rate the Book, Not the Author's Personal Beliefs"

    As with most of L Ron's Science Fiction, this one is amusing. The "science" is about as "real" as that found in Buck Rogers, but the story and characters are fun.

    Don't let any preconceptions about outside issues prevent you from enjoying this satiric romp - that goes for the entire Mission Earth series, not just this one book.

    "Read in the style of the prose..."

    Hubbard's dekalogy is a slapstick, tickle-in-the-ribs-until-they-faint- from-laughter triumph. This recording mimics the feel of the original story. The abridgers have done a marvelous job of cutting off the fat and leaving the muscle of the story. This is a marvelous romp and a madcap commentary on the human race. Installment 1 happens on an alien planet, but one that is enough like home that the listener will be able to pick up and follow the plot without a problem. If you are looking for wonderful diversion, pick this up. If you are looking for humorous commentary on the human condition, pick this up. If you are looking for serious reflection on the state of the planet, look elsewhere. This is nothing but rib-tickling entertainment.

    "Difference of opinion after a decade"

    For some reason I remember reading this whole series of books in Hight School (I did my Senior Thesis paper on Mr. Hubbard) and loving them. Now a little more than a decade later I find the book ok. Could have done without the sound effects. Still a great commentary on our society that is still true today. Get it for a laugh at the human race in general.
