Leader of Scientology since LRH’s death

“Without any reservations I can tell you that Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health … is the best forward vanguard in our possession.

“… If you are not furiously pushing Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health and if you are not insisting that each newly interested person read it as something new, startling, and strange in the world, you will be wasting most of your dissemination efforts.

“… When people are asking you questions about Scientology … your best answer to these questions was my earliest answer and that was ‘Read Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health and that will answer your question’.”

HCO P/L 28 April 1960
Books are Dissemination
(OEC Vol. 2, p. 331)

“This is our biggest dissemination piece yet!

“… If anybody has any questions about who we are or what we do, this will answer their questions!”

OT Summit, 2004, regarding his newly released DVD, “This is Scientology — An Overview of the World’s Fastest Growing Religion.”

Following COB’s lead, the Flag bookstore catalog of “LRH materials” featured this DVD at the top of its “Dissemination” page, with the note: “This DVD, delivered by Chairman of the Board RTC, is the perfect first step for disseminating to anyone.”

DMSMH was further down the page.
