Review

"...is a good textbook for someone who is going to put time and study into being a Michael student...this book will anchor the Michael writings for a long time to come..." --The Michael Connection

"... some of the most interesting of the recent flood of channeled information. It gives the reader a set of tools for self-understanding which can be of great aid in the search for a better way of life and better world for all humanity." --Ralph Metzner, Ph.D. - Dean, California Institute of Integral Studies

"Students of the New Age phenomenon interested in psychology and spirituality will find 'The Michael Handbook' illuminating." --Small Press Book Review

My response to the material presented in this book when I first encountered it in 1993 was an unqualified "YES!", and time has not diminished my enthusiasm. This is and was the only system that has ever resonated so deeply with me in terms of understanding why "things are the way they are", not only in my own life, but with regard to the human experience in general.
I found the model of the soul experience in the earth plane presented in this book to be intellectually coherent, spiritually satisfying, and emotionally comforting. The book also contains some interactive exercises that were remarkably accurate in helping me determine my own "spiritual profile" based upon the Michael model.
If you have nagging questions that you just can't resolve (e.g., Why is life so unfair? Why do bad things happen to good people?), or if you're just curious about why we're all here, you may find this book to be very enlightening. I sure did!
The book's one weakness: As another reviewer pointed out, the editing could have been a lot better. However, this is a minor issue and does not detract from the quality of the information presented.

I first read The Michael Handbook several years ago and have found it one of the most useful in my spiritual "meanderings". A description of this system was apparently first published by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, but has spread far and wide since (her publishing company doesn't seem too happy about that!). The book being channeled doesn't bother me--if you can't be open minded about sprituality, you should pick another subject. I like things spelled out clearly without a lot of double talk--the book does exactly that. The more you read, the more you learn about yourself and why you are the way you are. By the time you finish, you have a complete picture. This picture isn't an excuse, it's a starting point. You have to take it from there.

My only complaint would be the desktop publishing: I'm a copy editor and I'm sorely tempted to edit it and send it back to the publisher to fix. It doesn't seem like anyone proofread it.

This is an excellent book on the Michael teachings, which can serve both as a clear and manageable introduction to newcomers to the Michael information as well as a resource for those already familiar with the Michael system. The book may well have changed my life. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
The most interesting book explaining why we're here and what we're supposed to do. The book is not easy to figure out but once you "get it" It's cool. This is one of those things that if you're meant to read this book and you've gotten this far, you'll probably read it. Explains why fat people are fat, why you marry the person you marry, have the job you have, why you as an individual think the way you think. Tells where we go when we eventually leave the planet. Does it make any dfference? I don't know. Frankly an old woman told me once, " forget all this stuff and just live your life." Maybe that's what it's all about after all.

After being exposed to many religions and still not finding an answer, "The Michael Handbook" by Jose Stevens provided a very believable concept on why the human race exists and who we really are. Very down to earth and logical.

This book, as advertized, was a lot of fun. Michael is a "Seth-like" guardian spirit known to various people in California, who combines the essences of ~1200 individual souls. He teaches a detailed system of basic soul forms that never change and "overlays" that we choose for each lifetime. There are seven elements in each of the many categories, and plenty of examples of living and historical figures who embody all the different traits. The book suffers somewhat from amateur editing, but I loved it nonetheless

I found this book to be on target for the predominant message that it portrays. The data offered is similar to that offered by several other channeled entities whose messages were published in one form or another. What is unique to this book is how the material is presented. It reminds me of a college text book on the steps to enlightenment. It is written with a rather dry syntax that leaves no room for any character development or emotional undertone of either the channeled entity (Michael) or the authors. I think of this book as a primer for those of us newly introduced to the concept of ascension and the help and guidance of other-than-human sources. The "Michael" in this book, by the way, is not in reference to the archangel named Michael.

If organized religion is not your cup of tea, than this book just may be exactly what you've been searching for. The Michael handbook is a blueprint for those of us who don't believe that the bible provides all of the answers. If you've ever asked questions like: Why are we here? What is the purpose of being born just to suffer and die? Is reincarnation real or do we really only live once? I'm certain you will find that this book provides detailed explanations to those questions, while explaining why we are they way that we are as individuals. I've never been a religious person, but I am very spiritual. This book has provided me with a better understanding of the fact that we are indeed spiritual beings living on this physical plane to have a human experience, rather than a group of unconnected human beings trying to seek out a spiritual path through organized religion. After you read this book, you will definitely see yourself, your family members and the world in a different light. I also recommend reading Journey Of Souls: Case Studies of Life Between Lives by Micheal Newton, Flipside by Richard Martini and Same Soul, Many Bodies by Brian L. Wesis, MD.
