I've always been fascinated by the idea of self-discovery and the search for truth. With that in mind, I checked the internet for movements with such principles, and for a while Scientology was right up my alley. I checked their websites, watched their videos and even did some courses, but I never got around to reading any of the books, because I soon found out that the CoS is greedy and abusive, and I've sort of been keeping them in the back of my mind ever since. Is it worth reading church literature? Is there anything good and inspiring in books like "Dianetics" or "The fundamentals of thought"?
