Publisher's Summary

What is Scientology really? Behind the glossy logos and sleek advertisements and South Park parodies, what do Scientologists really believe and practice? Is it really a religion? Who was L. Ron Hubbard, and why did he start it in the first place? Is their technology for real or just so much New Age pseudoscience?
Former insider Chris Shelton grew up in Scientology and worked for it for 25 years. This critical analysis covers the key aspects of its beliefs, practices, and structure from the bottom to the top, including not just the confidential Xenu story but details of all of the upper-level scriptures. Chris goes into detail about what goes on inside Scientology churches, why its members get involved in the first place, and what it takes to get out should someone decide to leave.
An informative guide for anyone who has been involved with Scientology in the past as well as anyone who wants to understand what it's really all about.

A great book about this secretive group!

If you've ever wondered about Scientology than this is the book for you! I'd read and listened to a lot of materials about Scientology before starting this book, so I wasn't sure how much I'd actually get from it. However once I got past the point where the book introduces basic Scientology concepts to readers and starts into the real meat and potatoes of Scientology beliefs, it became a real page turner! Even after the amount of material I've read about Scientology I learned a hell of a lot from this book. The chapters about KSW and the OT materials are worth the price of the purchase alone! Chris has a way of drawing together heaps of Scientology concepts and explaining them in a way that I hadn't considered before, so even as a seasoned Scientology watcher I learned a lot about the group. This book is a purchase I'll never regret!
