Publisher's Summary

In 2006, Forbes magazine ranked Tom Cruise as the most powerful celebrity in the world. With three Golden Globe awards, three Academy Award nominations, and 27 films with an average box office gross of nearly $100 million, People magazine's choice for the "Sexiest Man Alive" in 1990 is unquestionably one of the biggest movie stars of our time.He has also become one of the most controversial, for his outspoken championship of Scientology, for his criticism of Brooke Shields for turning to the "Nazi science" of psychiatry for help with postpartum depression, and for the time in 2005 when he jumped on Oprah Winfrey's couch proclaiming his love for Katie Holmes. But for all the headlines and the rumors swirling around him, the real Tom Cruise has remained surprisingly hidden: until now.For two years, acclaimed investigative journalist Andrew Morton has been uncovering the true story of Tom Cruise: from his days as bullied "little Tommy Mapother", to his early stardom, to his romances, and his increasingly public involvement in the world of Scientology. With new sources and exclusive interviews, Morton brings us never-heard revelations about the private, sometimes shocking world of Tom Cruise.

An In-depth Analysis of Tom Cruise & Scientology!

Although I have idolized Tom Cruise for decades, and have even published numerous commentaries defending his antics over the years, I recommend that people take a look at this excellent biography.

Presuming that Andrew Morton, his publisher, and attorneys did their homework, I learned many disturbing things about Cruise and Scientology for the first time. I also enjoyed many of the tidbits that Morton provides from at least one Cruise family member, teachers, girlfriends, and others.

Although the book is very tough on both Cruise and Scientology, it is a must for any die-hard Cruise fan or anyone interested in getting the inside scoop about Scientology.
