The Beginning Books

The materials of Dianetics and Scientology comprise the largest body of information ever assembled on the mind, spirit and life. They contain new discoveries that you can apply to achieve the personal happiness and freedom that come from truly understanding yourself, others, and the world in which you live.

Dianetics and Scientology are about life. They are about your family, your friends, your colleagues. They are about you. They address the questions people commonly ask: How can I get along better with others? How can I become more successful? How can I achieve greater security? How can I help my friends prosper? Is happiness possible? Millions of people from all walks of life have found the answers to these questions in Dianetics and Scientology.

These materials contain the path of knowing how to know, unlocking the gates to a better future for you. Travel it and see.


Each paperback features front and back flaps that tuck inside the pages to keep your place. A notched thumb tab provides instant access to the glossary.

The glossaries are so complete, virtually every word you may not know has been defined. Detailed indexes with thousands of entries allow you to rapidly locate anything in the books—subjects, breakthroughs, charts, processes and key concepts.
