The books contained in this second collection can be considered subsidiary to those in the first collection. Those in the first collection were made by one man – see the introduction at the beginning of that section LINK HERE. Those in this section will not be found in the first collection and are rather a mixture of professionalism and accuracy in making and presenting digital copies. They represent, generally speaking, less important Scientology works and give more of a background picture to some aspects of what was going on in various parts of the Scientology world.

All the happiness . . . By Edward Lefsen assisted by Ruth Minshull, 1976 (11,483 KB)
An example of the "self-determinedess" and initiative which was evident in the Scientology field in pre-Miscavige times.

An Outline of Dianetics (13.3M)
A brief symposium by four psychotherapists and a scientist giving an outline of Dianetics including the latest developments circa 1952. Very interesting pamphlet from the early days of Dianetics in London. This would have been bought by my father before I had heard of Scientology and I never discussed it with him.

Brain-Washing (19.8M)
An earlier edition of this book was published by HASI (the Scientology Org) in the fifties. It was regarded with some curiosity by people I knew at the time and the question was raised as to whether L Ron Hubbard had written it. So far as I can remember that edition did not have a publisher. This one publicly proclaims at the back that it is from the American St. Hill organization.

Efficiency by Ruth Minshull (25,268 kilobytes)
This book, Efficiency by Ruth Minshull, was one of a handful of books published by Ruth Minshull privately in the mid-seventies. It was given official Scientology authority (called "Issue Authority") and sold by permission in official Scientology organisations. At a point Ruth Minshull received a congratulatory letter from Ron Hubbard. The books issued by Ruth Minshull and some others at the same time written by others than L. Ron Hubbard and granted Issue Authority were also sold in Scientology organisations and they were all later banned.

Fundamentals of Scientology by Jack Horner (1956) (483 KB)
This is the same book as Summary of Scientology but printed in South Africa

Introduction to Scientology by Richard DeMille, 1953 (23,669 kilobytes)
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. However there was a belief that it was written by Richard DeMille. He left Scientology but continued working in similar fields and wrote a book based on Scientology Creative Processing principles called "Put Your Mother on the Ceiling" which was still obtainable in 2018. See the Wikipedia article at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_de_Mille

Introductory Processes and Assists (460K)
There are a vast number of processes that L. Ron Hubbard has developed that fall under the heading of Introductory and Demonstration processes. Many of these processes are in early publications of Dianetics and Scientology and on taped lectures. Until all of these processes can be compiled into a book, the processes contained in this pack have been compiled so that they are readily available for use.

Miracles for Breakfast by Ruth Minshull (1968) (170 KB)
This was Ruth Minshull's most popular book, dealing with the Scientology principles involved in looking after and bringing up children. In 1972 a Danish translation was issued (Mirakler ved Morgenbordet) which was also very popular.

Professional Product Debug Reference Pack (313M)
A full course pack for the Hubbard Professional Product Debug course.

Summary of Scientology by Jack Horner (1956) (22,757 kilobytes)
Jack Horner was a doughty old-timer in the early fifties, teaching one of the early courses in Dianetics. See Scientolipedia: http://scientolipedia.org/info/Jack_Horner. This books gives another little slant on Scientology as it was in the very early days and gives a viewpoint on how someone other than Hubbard viewed Scientology. Horner has also given an account of goings-on in Scientology in the very early days (see the link just mentioned).

The Phoenix Lectures (30.809 kb)
Though this book was published in 1968 it consists of lectures of L Ron Hubbard given in 1954. John Sanborn, who was around at the time, came to St Hill in 1968 and worked on compiling this book and Scientology 0-8. The first three lectures give a broad resume of how Scientology fits into the general world picture (going way back in history). There are also chapters on the running of key Scientology processes.

Ups and Downs by Ruth Minshull , probably 1970s (157 KB)
This PDF edition, which is searchable, was "Reproduced for the benefit of the Free Zone by the New Bridge Supply Company". It gives a very thorough independent view on the Scientology's look at the questions of suppressive persons and rollercoasters cases. It includes many references to L Ron Hubbard's work and many examples from daily life of application of the theories.

What is Scientology by Ruth Minshull (1969) (350 KB)
This book is an amusingly illustrated little booklet describing to newcomers what Scientology is (according to what Ruth Minshull reckoned the parts of it that would attract new people, I suppose).
