I had been envious of peers who had been in the CMO and so it was as if I were finally being invited to sit at the cool kids' table.

History teaches us that escapees of ideologies often are brutally prosecuted and killed; religions 'shun' people'.The hole in question was created by my widely-disseminated recitation of the facts leading up to Scientology's tax exemption recognition. In the early 1980s, Hubbard had believed he deserved one for his 'discoveries' of the Purification Rundown, in which he claimed a regimen of saunas, vitamins, ingesting oil, and huge doses of niacin resulted in drug residues being 'sweated out. In the case of former Scientologists, they did/still do slavery in overdrive, escaped with nothing, and are victims of a 'religious'-regime who finance their prosecutions on tax payers' dimes.

The poetry (more accurately described as italicized notes-to-self with line breaks) remains strewn liberally through the pages, often summarizing the takeaway or the emotional impact of the events described: "I was / and still am / an exceptionally / easy target. Though her work was far from the Broadway shows she dreamed about, it eventually became all about the nightly hustle to simply survive. It was a tactic famously used by Stalin - keep your subordinates divided, fearful, confused, and off-balance. Imagine for a moment someone living with the apparent cognitive dissonance of being a victim and hero at the same time.The Greatest Secret, the long-awaited major work by Rhonda Byrne, lays out the next quantum leap in a journey that will take the listener beyond the material world and into the spiritual realm, where all possibilities exist.

posts that Rinder and his blood-sucking, back-stabbing shyster lawyer "friend" have yet to respond to because they cannot without forfeiting the latter's bar card. Imagine having three life-coaches who had been through the toughest mental and physical challenges; a crack team of problem-solvers who knew in their day job that one mistake could be the difference between life - and death. But through self-discipline, mental toughness, and hard work, Goggins transformed himself from a depressed, overweight young man with no future into a US Armed Forces icon and one of the world's top endurance athletes.

Never, in my thirty plus years in and around Scientology have I encountered a person so admittedly in it to satisfy his own vanity. I've never taken much interest in Scientology but decided to have a look at what it's really all about. I am fascinated with cults so reading this book by Mike Rinders' experience with Scientology and escape kept me interested. In the absolutely packed Act II, the dark fantasy resumes and the Sandman expands into the French Revolution, ancient Rome, 19th-century San Francisco, eighth-century Baghdad, and beyond. If you are at all familiar with scientology beyond the tabloid headlines, this book will fill in many gaps regarding things that have happened over the last 20+ years.

This was the man who wrote millions of words and delivered thousands of lectures explaining everything from how to wash windows to how to cure yourself of cancer. Still, Rinder bought into the doctrine that his personal comfort was secondary to the higher purpose of Hubbard's world-saving mission, swiftly rising through the ranks.

For David Goggins, childhood was a nightmare--poverty, prejudice, and physical abuse colored his days and haunted his nights. Their response instead is clear in Rinder's book: if you cannot prove history, and you wish it were different, then just recreate it. It's extreme, almost unbelievable and in that aspect I can highly recommend everyone to read this book, because no matter what you think, it will absolutely blow your mind.
