The New Scoutmaster’s Other Handbook Has Arrived



Thanks to an exceptionally mild winter, spring is coming early here in Kentucky, and trees and shrubs are starting to blossom. In fact, I saw the most amazing fruit on a pine tree in my yard today: the second edition of The Scoutmaster’s Other Handbook.

Okay, books don’t really grow on trees. Instead, they’re made from trees (in this case, from sustainably grown and harvested trees, as certified by the Forest Stewardship Council). That means that if you want your own copy of The Scoutmaster’s Other Handbook, you’ll have to buy it. And, as you might expect, I’m happy to help.

I blogged about the new edition a couple of months ago, but here’s an overview of what’s new:

  • A new cover
  • Extensive updates through to reflect changes in BSA policies and procedures
  • 16 pages of new content, much of which appeared first on this blog

In addition, the online resources that have long been part of the book have moved to the web, which makes updating them easier and freed up another 16 or so pages for new content.

I’m really excited about the new edition, and I hope you will be, too. You can buy it now from my website or in a Kindle edition from Amazon. (As Amazon and local Scout shops restock printed copies, they’ll be getting the new edition as well.)

To celebrate the new edition, I’m offering a 20% discount on all book orders through St. Patrick’s Day. Just enter the code SMOH2017 when you check out at
