I came across this on Amazon today, when I decided on impulse to read the one-star reviews for a book I just happened to look at. I won't say what book this review was for except to note that it was NOT one of Dan's books. I have no idea if the reviewer was honest about the writing itself, but the last sentence had the ring of truth to it. Of course, the joke is on the reader, since he or she had already paid the author:

"I'm totally convinced that the positive reviews about this book are left by friends and family of the author. There is simply no way, anyone with a registering IQ would find this book a pleasure to read. Tried reading this while on a camping trip. One of the dumbest books I've ever tried to read. Finally, I had to say, my dignity is on a higher level then this, and I quit reading. The only thing good about this book was- when our camper got stuck in the mud, I used this book for traction on the back left tire and it helped get us unstuck."

I remember when fool that I was, not thinking outside of the box I got up and threw Dianetics into the garbage after only reading part of the first chapter. My car said, "Jesus man, do you know what you have done?"
