this So called religion is an pathetic man's way of making himself feel important. David Muscavige is a deeply disturbed man , violent and sick. tom cruise is also a selfish man. I'm ashamed of them both and how self important they think they are. what a sad pathetic system.
Have read one other book about this matter "Troublemaker" Leader sounds like he has "short man syndrome" meaning he has to be a loud mouth and has a short temper to make up for his short status. No wonder he choose Tom Cruise as his 'boy toy' to show off; no one else as short as him.
"The Trouble Maker" I haven't read any others yet.
First time to hear him read.
The Most Expensive CULT
Last few minutes of the Book author discusses other religions such as Jim Jones, Waco, and others where the FBI is involved. Do they not care as much that much because of the 'stars in the church'. Maybe the stars are too scared to get out. "Brain washing". If the stars make great movies people are still going to love them no matter what the church tells us about them. People will take it with a grain of salt. We just don't care about there personal lives. To each his own. Public knows about a lot about them already. Let the tabloids have a field day and just get over it.
Say something about yourself!
If you want an entertaining book on Scientology, then get the book from Leah Remini. This one will have you skipping chapters , it's really detailed.
I enjoyed it but had to stop half way through. Just too long for the time period I had to listen.
This book made me seriously rethink my involvement in AA. The similarities were striking. I loved this book. It makes me consider daily how free my mind is and how easily it can can be influenced by others.
If you are at all interested in current cults in the world you must read this book! very well supported with fact, and attention the the blatant contradictions and lies fountained forth by this "church". if you are in the cult read this, if you are interested in cults read this, if you are interested in the world around you, READ THIS BOOK.
Both this book and the one by Janet Reitman are must reads for anyone curious about Scientology. Wright is an outstanding reporter whose earlier book, The Looming Tower, was a masterpiece.
The narration is excellent and well captured the tone of the book's characters.
After finishing I was still left wanting a fuller explanation of how non-damaged adults could remain in an organization that has so much underlying sadistic behavior toward underlings and how it succeeds in keeping its practices away from its naive members.
After you finish this book and Reitman's, look up the Lisa McPhearson articles in the St Petersburg Times called The Truth Rundown.
All in all an informative if disturbing book.
