    Jenna Miscavige Hill, niece of Church of Scientology leader David Miscavige, was raised as a Scientologist but left the controversial religion in 2005. In Beyond Belief, she shares her true story of life inside the upper ranks of the sect, details her experiences as a member Sea Org - the church's highest ministry - speaks of her "disconnection" from family outside of the organization, and tells the story of her ultimate escape.

    Tim says: "The Despicable Truth Behind Scientology"
    "Must read for anyone with kids."

    Story

    As a student in Boston during the late 80's.I was constantly approached on the street by these scientologists and once entered their "church". on Newbury street. They have expensive real estate which psycologically gives themselves credibility to the young people they target. And they do aggresively target them. Every year hundreds of thousands of new minds enter the city and they are waiting. This book is a highly detailed account into the inner workings of this cult. It gives great insight into mind control and manipulation. While most of us will never be threatend or affected by such an extreme organization one can learn from the writers experience on how to avoid being manipulated or controlled by any organazation. The narrator captured the authors transition from mind robbed child to angry adult, flawlessly.

    Story
    (1176)

    In the mid-70s, Steve Martin exploded onto the comedy scene. By 1978 he was the biggest concert draw in the history of stand-up. In 1981 he quit forever. Born Standing Up is, in his own words, the story of "why I did stand-up and why I walked away".

    Andrew says: "Fantastic"
    "Sincere,honest and funny."

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Born Standing Up to be better than the print version?

    Yes, and hearing from the author himself is always more insightful.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Born Standing Up?

    I think it was the fact that Steve Martin held in there and never gave up.


    What about Steve Martin’s performance did you like?

    Not too funny and not too serious but perfectly honest.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Reconciliation with his father who frowned on his work even after great success.


    Any additional comments?

    Surprising to find out how isolating it was to be one of the most popular comedians of all time. Did not want the book to end.
