going clear scientology and the prison of belief book

It is a strange feeling to pick up a newly released book in a second-hand book shop in New York, as I did last week. The book was dropped by its original publisher, Transworld, presumably under legal pressure from the famously litigious church, and is now being released by Silvertail. Hubbard was a charismatic and a startling fantasist. He claimed to have worked on films in which he was not credited. His obsession with naval culture fleeing lawsuits, he eventually took Scientology to sea on a fleet of boats seems to have given birth to a string of invented wartime stories.

Yet, though it claims a membership of 8m worldwide, independent studies suggest only 30, Americans call themselves Scientologists: that's less than half the number of Americans who identify as Rastafarian.

Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood & the Prison of Belief by Lawrence Wright – review

That crunching sound you hear is Lawrence Wright bending over backward to be fair to Scientology. Every deceptive comparison with Mormonism and other religions is given a respectful hearing. Every ludicrous bit of church dogma is served up deadpan. Open almost any page at random. That tape of L. Oh, that period. Of course.

The book contains interviews with current and former Scientologists, the histories of founder L. Ron Hubbard and current leader David Miscavige , and analysis of the relationships of Tom Cruise and John Travolta to the organization. - According to Bridge Publications, itself an arm of the Church of Scientology, at least 80 million copies have been sold. That sounds possible, if you credit the church's claim that it has 8 million members.
