Seventy years ago today, L. Ron Hubbard published the book that changed his life and sparked a movement, Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health.

Two years later, after the brief Dianetics boom had gone bust (along with his second marriage), Hubbard regrouped in Phoenix and, with the name "Dianetics" stuck in banktruptcy, called his new idea "Scientology," replacing a focus on recovering memories in the womb (a central part of Dianetics) with recovering memories from past lives.

But even as Scientology grew and went in many strange directions, Hubbard's 1950 bestseller Dianetics has remained, even today, "Book One" for Scientologists, and the bedrock text that the movement rests on.
