Dianetics: The Original Thesis (1948): This is Ron's earliest written description of Dianetics, written in 1948. He published a few manuscript copies and handed them out and others made their own copies and passed them from hand to hand. Based on the ensuing demand for more information, in 1950 he then wrote Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health. The Original Thesis contains his first written description of auditing and how and why it works. Here is his first statement of the three laws behind the workability of auditing therapy. Originally circulated in manuscript form as Abnormal Dianetics, it was first published in 1951 as The Original Thesis. In the late 1980s it was renamed Dynamics of Life but the name has since been reverted.
