Book Details

Author
L. Ron Hubbard

Dianetics and Scientology Technical Dictionary (1975): This is the dictionary most used by Scientologists to clarify definitions of Scientology technical terms, meaning the subject of auditing also known as "red on white." Words are defined by direct quotations from L. Ron Hubbard's bulletins, recorded lectures and books. Some definitions include illustrations and in the back is a reference summary consisting of the Expanded Emotional Tone Scale, definitions of common abbreviations, and a list of all LRH references pertaining to auditing technology. 577 pages.

A most useful book to understand what the founder wrote on the subject of Scientology

I have had this book since the 70's and I use it whenever I need an explanation of any word or concept I am studying in Scientology or Dianetics. It is extremely useful to me.

Pros and Cons (optional)

Pros
Scientology & Dianetics has a nomenclature that is not necessarily found in other dictionaries, but this One clarifies most things in those subjects.
Cons
It's one of the most important books for anyone studying the subjects of Dianetics and Scientology
so why it was let go out out of print is to my mind a suppressive act.

Bottom line...

How do you review a dictionary? In this case it is the quintessential reference to the work of Standard Dianetics and Scientology Technology as discovered by L. Ron Hubbard. Replete with direct references to all his actual writings and technical issues within each of the definitions. In fact all the definitions are taken from the references as originally issued.

In all these years hence, even the new Church under the ecclesiastical leader David Miscavige, have failed to come up with a better alternative - and they never will.

A must have for anyone interested in the subject.

Pros
A treasure to all Scientologists and ayyone seeking to understand the technology.
Cons
Sadly (note I haven't been involved internally since 2010), as I understand it is currently out of print. Hope and truth prevail however as there exists at least one link I found to get the full 1975 original copy online, and free to all no less: http://e-meter-star.com/books.files/TECHDICT.PDF

Beware only a few referenced definitions included that were not written by LRH, but they are easy to differentiate once you get the hang of it.

Bottom line...

Pros and Cons (optional)

Pros
- very thorough job done to collect all these definitions and put them into one dictionary.
Cons
- not available in other languages than English
- still definitions included which are not directly from LRH
- could be more updated as definitions are still missing (e.g. out of the ACCs, Congresses, etc.)

Bottom line...

The Technical Dictionary has always had a prominent spot on my bookshelf. Not only is it invaluable for clearing up technical words, it also serves as a reverse reference. Find the word, locate the correct definition, go back to the original reference where the word appeared. So, it always had a twofold use for me. These days my Technical Dictionary is quite beat up. It's old, battered, and still as useful as it always was.
