This is the story of a young man who was raised as a Jehovah's Witness, seemingly destined to spend the rest of his life following the instruction of God's "Spirit Directed Organization". He soon came to discover, however, that things were not as they had first seemed. Following a patch of doubt and subsequent in-depth investigation into the religion, the young man began to realize that the things he had previously accepted without question no longer made sense. His eyes were opened to the various powerful methods that were, and still are, being used to control the minds of the faith's followers.
The story contained in this audiobook describes the author's life, from his upbringing as a Jehovah's Witness, his struggles along the way, and the challenges he faced as he tried to break free. His extensive research into the religion's history is also documented, including apparent accounts of questionable teachings and manipulative methodologies.

This kept me interested and wanted to finish it all at once however the pace of the narrator could have been slower in order to absorb the information. Felt it was too fast pass.
I really enjoyed this book. I felt it gave a thought provoking look into a religion that isn't well know. I am not a Jehovah's Witness but have been learning about the religion (a hobby of mine) and his observations and research are right in line with some of the finer points I have come across and questioned. Over all it is well researched and thought provoking.
I like the narration but be forewarned that it does have a text book feel.
totally loved this book. wow. a must for any cult survivor or anyone wanting to free themselves
