This volume brings together the most important writings of Don Bosco on the origin and development of the Salesian congregation, the Salesian method of working with the young, and the Salesian spirituality - in short - the heart, mind and mission of Don Bosco in his own words! Rev. Fr. Pascual Chávez Villanueva SDB, the former Rector Major states: "It should be like a “vademecum” or handbook essential for knowledge of Don Bosco. A must-read book for all lovers of Don Bosco."
