The Story of Dianetics and Scientology
To really know life you’ve got to be part of life. You must get down and look, you must get into the nooks and crannies of existence. You have to rub elbows with all kinds and types of men before you can finally establish what he is. —L. Ron Hubbard
Through his extraordinary journey to the founding of Dianetics and Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard did just that. From his adventurous youth in a rough-and-tumble American West to his far-flung trek across a still mysterious Asia; from his two-decade search for the essence of life to the triumph of Dianetics and Scientology—such is the story Mr. Hubbard recounts in a lecture so legendary, it has been heard by millions.

Ron Hubbard’s personal account of his long journey to bring about a new state of being Man had dreamed of for over 2,500 years, a story that could only be told by the man who lived it.
