An Accurate Title

A New Slant on Life offers simple, valuable principles I can use to improve my life.

From how to build and improve relationships with others to how to identify the destructive 3rd Party who continually tears you apart, this book provides social concepts I've yet to encounter in life.

My only suggestion is to remove the background music. It gently winds on throughout the whole book and is slightly distracting.

A New Slant On Life is a simple summary of what an applied philosophy is

The basic tenets of Scientology are expressed in simple easy to understand terms for anyone who is curious about what Scientology really is. The life of anyone who would spend a little time reading and understanding these concepts would change drastically. I know mine did :-)

Good Introduction

I'm not a Scientologist but was curious about the subject so I purchased this audiobook. The book covers different aspects of life and how they can be improved such as work, marriage, and the ability to communicate. There is also a good introduction to Scientology. If you're curious about the subject this book will give you a solid introduction.

addressing the mystery

interesting...I've heard so many negative things about Scientology,so I wanted to find out for myself. I was pleasantly surprised to hear sound,reasonable explanations for their beliefs. I didn't agree with everything but,I could relate to a lot of what was being said. The press and gossip mongers should be ignored. if you want to know about anything in life. "go to the source "

Listen

Before you agree and side with the bad press regarding scientology, take it amongst yourself and listen to this before making up your OWN MIND on scientology.

Enjoy

Life changing.

This book is awesome, it gives better understanding of life. The book is written by L.Ron Hubbard who is a founder of Scientology. He leads by example of good morale and ethics and helps us to live better life, helping ourselves and others. For some time I had experiences inspired by L.Ron Hubbard and find it the best what I had in my life. I would like to take a chance and say thanks to all Scientologists who gave me the guidance. I hope this book is going to make a positive change in every reader's life.
