Business Physicist and Astronomer
This book should be required reading/listening. The book seems to be very even handed in that, even in the closing words, the author balances his findings with a response from the organization.
Still, in spite of Church of Scientology denials, there is just too much evidence of very dangerous behavior. Germany got it right.
You know, I am a little fearful in posting this because Scientology strikes me as so dangerous and vindictive.
This is the Audible book I had to stop frequently because it is just so disturbing.
This book lays bare the mythology we have bought for years about our glorious nation under god. Turns out there's a reason we believe we're special---part of the trappings of power. I agree.
Every American should read this book and learn. Learn that neither party has the honesty market cornered. Nope, you can't even say that one party is a little better than the other party. The lies both parties have told us have cost thousands of American lives and trillions of dollars in treasure. From Johnson to Obama, we haven't had a truly honest man in the White House.
We're not talking about little lies either. Big stuff.
Please give this book a listen. Then buy a few copies of the print version and give them as gifts---or curses. It's pretty rough to face the myths we believe in.
I enjoyed this book and I learned a lot from it. good read.
My ONLY complaint is that the author seems to attribute all "meth" use to the loss of well paying jobs and sadly that's not the case. There are issues of character that enter into the pattern of drug abuse. I'm sorry, but there are.
Not everyone who falls into the drug trap goes by way of poverty and despair. Many (most?) have mental (physical) and character issues. The choice to USE a drug precedes addiction.
So, yes, great book but a little bit too much blame placed on bad corporations.
