Other Earlier Editions of Scientology Books

Written October 2018 I am in the process of transferring these early editions from my dropbox to this place here. There are some interesting bits of work here, familiar to Scientologists in their time. And now completely forgotten. They give you another viewpoint on bits and pieces of Scientology.

Introduction to Scientology is a volume of about 150 pages written by Richard deMille, Ph.D and Published 1953, by Scientology Council. Richard DeMille was an early collaborator in the beginning of Scientology. At the beginning of the book "How to Live Though an Executive" (1953) it states that the manuscript to that book was prepared by Richard DeMille.
