    Scientology, created in 1954 by a prolific sci-fi writer named L. Ron Hubbard, claims to be the world's fastest-growing religion, with millions of members around the world and huge financial holdings. Its celebrity believers keep its profile high, and its teams of "volunteer ministers" offer aid at disaster sites such as Haiti and the World Trade Center. But Scientology is also a notably closed faith, harassing journalists and others through litigation and intimidation, even infiltrating the highest levels of government to further its goals.

    Matt says: "My cup of tea."

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Inside Scientology to be better than the print version?

    I never read the print version.


    What other book might you compare Inside Scientology to and why?

    Alice in Wonderland. Things get weirder the further in you get.


    What does Stephen Hoye bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brings a nice cadence to the story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Janet Reitman says at the beginning that she is trying to present a fair and objective history of Scientology.

    In spite of her best efforts, she can't dispel the notion that you can't spell "crazy" without "Scientology."
