Description

Released on May 9, 1950, Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health became an overnight publishing sensation. Immediately hitting the New York Times bestseller list and remaining there for 26 consecutive weeks. So great was the excitement that, virtually overnight, some 750 Dianetics groups sprang up across the United States generating what was, quite literally, a wildfire grass-roots movement. It also generated an unprecedented wave of popular demand for personal instruction from its author, L. Ron Hubbard. Consequently, and within
weeks of the book's initial publication, L. Ron Hubbard was traveling coast to coast, lecturing to tens of thousands of new readers on his discoveries and their application. To provide for still greater numbers he could not otherwise hope to reach, he soon directed the lectures be recorded so they could be further reproduced for one and all. So came his lecture to a packed Municipal Auditorium in Oakland, California. It stands today as the first recorded spoken word on the breakthrough technology of Dianetics.
Since then, decade after decade, Dianetics has continued to appear on bestseller lists world over with tens of millions of copies now in circulation. Moreover, the movement Dianetics inspired now spans every culture, across every continent,
in over 50 languages of Earth. As L. Ron Hubbard said in Dianetics: "You are beginning an adventure. Treat it as an adventure. And may you never be the same again." Here, then, is where that adventure began, an exploration into Terra
Incognita-the mind.

About L. Ron Hubbard

Author, humanitarian and Founder of Dianetics and Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard is one of the most acclaimed figures of the modern age.

In a writing career spanning more than half a century, he was both a leading light of American fiction and the author of more than 35 million words of nonfiction--the single most embracive statement on the human mind and spirit, providing the only road to total spiritual freedom.

To date, more than 320 million copies of his works are in circulation worldwide, in 71 languages. All told, those works comprise over 3.000 recorded lectures and some 1.084 written publications, including nineteen New York Times bestsellers.

Accordingly, and in testament to the magnitude of his literary legacy, there are his four Guinness World Records: most published author, most translated author, the author with the most audiobook titles and the single most translated non-religious work.

Yet the essence of L. Ron Hubbard's legacy is perhaps best expressed in his simple declaration:

"I like to help others and count it as my greatest pleasure in life to see a person free himself of the shadows which darken his days.

"These shadows look so thick to him and weigh him down so that when he finds they are shadows and that he can see through them, walk through them and be again in the sun, he is enormously delighted. And I am afraid I am just as delighted as he is."
