This is a must read for anyone seeking the truth about Scientology. This book along with Leah Remini‘s autobiography will break down exactly how this cult operates. Jenna is clearly a compassionate and loving person because honestly I don’t know if I could’ve forgiven my parents like she did , if they had put me through this. David Miscavage needs to be held responsible for Lisa McPherson‘s death. This book confirms that for me.

In Patient Zero, Richard A. McKay presents a carefully documented and sensitively written account of the life of Gaetan Dugas, a gay man whose skin cancer diagnosis in 1980 took on very different meanings as the HIV/AIDS epidemic developed - and who received widespread posthumous infamy when he was incorrectly identified as patient zero of the North American outbreak.

Let me first say, I never bought that Gaetan Dugas was "Patient Zero". So I'm glad that the truth about this myth has been corrected.

That being said, I felt the book was on a constant wash, rinse , repeat. The author clearly is no fan of Randy Shilts. I get it, Mr. McKay, you dislike Mr. Shilts.

Now I did learn a lot more about Randy Shilts' life that I had no idea about. I will admit makes me see him in a different light. It's a mixture of pity and disappointment.

On a side note: The narrator is fantastic. I'll have to look for more books with his narration.

My doctor recently told me my liver was fatty due to my sugar/carb filled diet. She recommended me to read Dr. Hyman's book because as she put it, " He will explain it better than I can". The wellness plan she has me on is exactly what Dr. Hyman recommends. I've been on the plan for 2 weeks now and I already feel so much better.

Prosecuting attorney in the Manson trial Vincent Bugliosi held a unique insider's position in one of the most baffling and horrifying cases of the 20th century: the cold-blooded Tate-LaBianca murders carried out by Charles Manson and four of his followers.

Now available for the first time in unabridged audio, the gripping story of this famous and haunting crime is brought to life by acclaimed narrator Scott Brick.

I read this back in high school in the 80's but I don't remember much of it. So I decided to listen to it. I'm glad I did. There was a lot more information than I remember. Charles Manson is pure evil and his cult of personally ways destroyed so many lives. I will say Susan Adkins may have been the scariest family member after Manson. It also highlights that Manson may have learned a lot if his techniques from Scientology.

1936 was a great year for the movie industry - the financial setbacks of the Great Depression were subsiding, so theater attendance was up. Americans everywhere were watching the stars, and few stars shined as brightly as one of America's most enduring screen favorites, Mary Astor. But Astor's personal story wasn't a happy one. Born poor and widowed at 24, Mary Astor had spent years looking for stability when she met and wed Dr. Franklyn Thorpe.

It is estimated that more than 20 million Americans have practiced some form of yoga, yet almost none of them have heard of yoga's early teachers or their insights. While we are familiar with yoga's physical benefits, the original purpose of yoga as a path to inner freedom and enlightenment is embodied by only a few students in the West. Now yoga scholar Georg Feuerstein immerses you in The Lost Teachings of Yoga, the first comprehensive audio curriculum about yoga's original spiritual wisdom and practices.
