The book includes: * Expansive essays providing the most complete description of The Ideal State of Man * The Human Mind, how it operates and its underlying purpose * The Control Center, the "awareness of awareness" unit of the mind, and how it is CAUSE of the body and environment * The Fifteen Acts of self-processing that move an individual from EFFECT to CAUSE -- processes so powerful that this book is now known as the book of miracles This workbook edition of Handbook for Preclears has been specifically designed for ease of use in processing, with space provided to answer processing questions and resulting in a permanent and complete record of one's own case for use in future processing. In self-processing, Handbook for Preclears is used in conjunction with Self Analysis.
