Harrowing. Fascinating. Trying.
Well, spoken, read with interest and understanding of the subject matter.
Nope, too long. It did hold my attention for the duration though. I am personally very interested in the subject matter (cults, weird religions, brain-washing etc.)
Worth checking out by anyone who is curious about the "non-glamorous" (i.e. no celebrities involved) side of Scientology, the author gives a detailed first person account of being born into the ludicrous 'religion' of Scientology - basically a new-age cult formed by a science fiction writer - and becoming one of it's foot soldiers.... the oppressive, fascistic 'Sea Org' - a militaresque order of the most dogmatic members of the religion. The levels of psychological torture, brain-washing and child abuse boggle the mind. No wonder this cult is so secretive, defensive....and litigious!
Very interesting concept, well researched and written.
The detail of the subject matter; it was concise yet thorough.
No, but he certainly reads well and I would be pleased to hear him read again.
I found the history of beer to be particularly engaging, as I had no idea it was one of the earliest beverages ever made.
Highly recommended to any history buffs.
Fascinating, intriguing, enlightening
The history of how Google began, the transition from being a start-up to the huge corporation they are today
The Chinese struggle, the story of Android
Neither, but it was very intersting
