Book Details

Author
L. Ron Hubbard

When Ron created the Volunteer Minister Program in the 1970s, he said that a society needed at least as many ministers as it had police. He drew inspiration from the "barefoot doctors" of China who were sent from the cities to minister to the poor in the Chinese countryside and developed the Volunteer Minister's Handbook. Instead of reprinting, David Miscavige replaced it with The Scientology Handbook in the 1994. Like the Volunteer Minister's Handbook, it covers 19 separate subjects of Scientology fundamentals applicable to different areas of life such as marriage, the family, work, relationships, education and many others. Unlike the Volunteer Minister's Handbook, it also included painfully hokey illustrations denigrating the technology by implying its own readers were unintelligent.

If you want an overview on how to use basic Scientology in your life and other peoples, this book contains a way to help anyone. It is a delight to read with many demonstrative pictures to help understanding. I have used information in it to get someone off the nicotine habit and also to discourage people from taking drugs. Also the information on raising children is extremely valuable.

הספר מכיל בתמצית כלים מאוד שימושיים לחיי היומיום.
19 פרקים שכל אחד מוקדש לנושא אחר. כמו, כלים ללמידה, תקשורת בינאישית, עבודה, גידול ילדים, זוגיות, ניהול עסקי ועוד.
חשוב להבין שהכלים נועדו לשימוש ואינם תיאוריה פילוסופית כנושא למחשבה.

Volunteer Minister's Handbook ...watered down

What you really want is the Volunteer Minister's Handbook. But if you can't find it, this is a great resource.

Where I stand

I am a...
Independent Scientologist

Pros and Cons (optional)

Pros
The information is hugely valuable. The book pulls so much together in one place. (See my review for the Volunteer Minister's Handbook for more details.) One Pro is that it is more widely available than the Volunteer Minister's Handbook.
Cons
This is a watered down version of the Volunteer Minister's Handbook.
It's been "polished" and looks great. But I'd rather have the exact data as originally presented, than a rewritten version designed to be "more socially acceptable".

Bottom line...
