Blogging Dianetics from cover to cover

Dianetics_First_EditionIn 1950, L. Ron Hubbard published the book that changed his life, transforming him from a well known writer of pulp fiction into an even more well known leader of a worldwide organization that came to be known as the Church of Scientology.

That book was Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, and in 2013 we examined it in weekly installments, using a first edition copy of the book that was given to us by researcher Jeff Jacobsen.

The best part: we made use of the invaluable help of ex-Scientologist, Los Angeles lawyer, and writer Vance Woodward.
