Victors manual is probably the most comprehensive manual out there. Yes I have a copy and it is 535 pages plus another 20 or so appendices which have a lot of the legal documents such as contracts etc,.
The manual was updated just before Victor passed away but includes much of what he had written before.
You can get an idea of what is in the manual by going here.... http://www.santaschool.com/manual.htm
Please also remember that the content here was the older manual and not the updated one, they are however close.
The people who attended at the last Santa School found the book to be a good partner with the sessions but is not necessary. The book tells everything, The sessions allow you the "hands on".
I will say there are other books and manuals out there and it all depends on what you are looking for. I will add that this manual certainly upholds the subtitle "the manual of bringing joy"
Santa school this year by the way, as I get to promote it at every chance is May 27-29.
Contact Auntie Claus, Elf Jen at firstname.lastname@example.org
Any other Santas that have read or used the manual, please feel free to voice your thoughts too.

Hi Santas! I am new to this and want to be the best Santa Claus I can. I have heard about a book called "All About Being Santa" by Victor Nevada which is over 500 pages long and costs $169. Have any of you read it? Is it worth the money? Thanks in advance, Santa Steve
I own Victor's manual (the copy I have includes my name in the author's acknowledgements); and I have to say it is required reading, as is another Santa manual in my archives, this one written by Vegas-based Santa Scotty Gosh. Here is wisdom: even if you're Santa, research, fact-checking, and asking questions can also lend a hand in beating the bad guys!

Santa Richard, I hadn't heard of the book by Santa Scotty Gosh, could you provide a website or other source of information? Thanks.
Well, Scotty and his wife Joyce live in Vegas near Decatur Boulevard and Tropicana Avenue. Over 20 years ago they created the non-profit Family Traditions Foundation, in part to support Scotty's other major character, Nevada Nick, and his website at NevadaNick.com. Scotty and Joyce self-published the Santa manual I told you about; the only other connection I can locate is a Vegas area phone number, 1-702/873-3551. Hope this helps!
