Messiah Or Madman? New PDF Version

Post by TheRealNoUser » Thu Mar 17, 2011 10:53 pm

I was hoping to have this ready for Ron's birthday, but it took a little longer to prepare than I anticipated.

Anyway, here it is. A nice new pdf version of Bent Corydon's "L. Ron Hubbard - Messiah Or Madman?"

Please mirror this and share it as far and wide as possible - and quickly, as these things often get deleted fast.

N.B. This is basically from the widely known text version, but I have reformatted it and made a nice cover similar to the original. It is much easier to read and distribute. I proof-read and corrected bad OCR as best as I could. If anyone finds any glaring errors, please report back to this thread and I will collect them up and periodically do fixes. The photographic plates mentioned in the text are not included, so if anyone has access to these please share !

In reading thru this book again, I am impressed by how thorough it is and it really explains things very well - including the current management practices. Things really have NOT changed since Ron's days. I highly recommend that everyone reads this again.

Best,

The Real No User.

Happy Birthday Ron ! . . . . I'm glad you're dead.

To think I nearly bought a (rather expensive) used copy of this book a couple of days ago! You're the best!

That's wonderful. Great work.

There's a much updated and expanded version, with a lot of the "rush to print" typos corrected, and a new Index. This is the hardbound 464 page 1996 edition (red cover.)

Before that is a paperback 1992 edition, and this has new material also, but that was also - for legal reasons - also rushed to print, and has - in the new material - some rough edges.

So, if you can find a way to locate the 1996 464 page (with Index) edition and get that on the Net, that would be the ultimate achievement.

I know Mark Bunker has a copy of the third edition, as he holds it up in the Clearwater Police video when he's discussing Dennis Clarke and the CCHR. So there are copies out there.

Tory might have a copy too.

Anyway, great job!

P.S. Four typos in the 1st edition that come to mind are the use of the original spelling of John Sanborn's (Sanborne) name. The correct spelling is the modernized "Sanborn."

Also, Stewart LaMont (an author) was typo-ed as "Stewar*d* LaMont," and should be corrected to "Stewart."

And Richard Semon is typoed as "Simon" and should be "Semon." (The Mneme).

And, minor typo - in the first chapter, "spirit *of* thetan" should be "spirit *or* thetan."

Anonlover, regarding your mirror link. Not your fault but the scribd.com site currently has an adserver hijack of the "system tool/cleaner" malware variety. Windows users best avoid for now (don't know about Macs). Linux is ok.

The download link in the top post from TNRU is fine.

Generally speaking, if ever you see a dialogue box pop up when trying to visit a site wanting to scan your system then do not click anything on it. Windows users, right click on the taskbar, open taskmanager, select the browser process that is running and end the task.

Edit: Thanks anonlover.

P.S. Just had a chance to have a glimpse. Nicely done. Much more book-like and more readable on a computer screen and tablet device.

Note: On the OP's MUlTIUPLOAD.COM link page (which offers several choices of download services), DO NOT CLICK ON THOSE IDIOTIC BANNER ADS WITH THE BIG "DOWNLOAD" AND "PLAY NOW" BUTTONS (unless you want spamware on your system).

Here's the direct download choices pulled out of that multiupload link...

(I didn't post the uploading.com one due to same fake download banner ad buttons).

-----------------------------------------------------------

Here's another mirror download (directly at megaupload.com) of the just PDF (not in a zipped mac folder)

File name: L. Ron Hubbard - Messiah Or Madman.pdf
File description: "L. Ron Hubbard - Messiah Or Madman" by Bent Corydon (PDF book)
File size: 895.79 KB
Download link: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=SNETNONE

The file is small enough to email to your friends, even on dial-up internet.

Nice. Thanks Sponge. I didn't even see that ad, as I am running an adblocker.

If anyone is a member of any other groups and forums, it would be nice to spread this far and wide - so it would be appreciated if you can spread the word and links. This is such an important book, especially for newbies who have just got out or are thinking of escape.

Thanks to all for the kind comments !

Since all the previous links are currently dead, I have re-uploaded to a multi-hoster site. Please download, and make new shares to as many places as possible.

Messiah or Madman is the only anti-Scientology book that I have read. It is so good that it helped me to save two of my friends from the cult.
