A "CHURCH" THAT IS DESTRUCTIVE. INSIDE SCIENTOLOGY
An incredible book, it's a page-turning thriller. It shows how paranoid, suspicious and utterly vindictive the "Church" of Scientology really is. They literally tried to make her take her own life.
What is amazing is it's true. It's the story of how the "church" of Scientology set out to destroy Paulette Cooper, you will be utterly shocked what this cult did to try & destroy this lady. One example being the ‘church’ even went as far as to get her fingerprints on a piece of paper. They then sent forged bomb threats on the paper with her fingerprints to themselves, leading her to be arrested, facing 15 years in prison. The only reason she was not sent to jail was at around the same time, the FBI raided the Church of Scientology's offices in Washington DC and Los Angeles, finding evidence of what is to this day the largest infiltration of government offices in US history. They also found evidence of the campaign to destroy Paulette Cooper.
The author, Tony Ortega, is an investigative journalist & the premier journalist in uncovering the evil cult that is Scientology. He is meticulous in his research, and delved deeply into original documents and spoke with people who were involved in this horrendous campaign to destroy Paulette. The "church's" own documents, seized by the FBI, detailed their campaign to either have her committed to an asylum, put in jail, or commit suicide!
The book is stunning and you'll be amazed and horrified by what a "church" did to one young woman who dared to write something critical about them. Once you pick up this book, you won't be able to do anything else until you finish reading. This is a masterpiece of non-fiction storytelling. If you enjoy this then you must read Leah Remini’s book Troublemaker, it will also show how twisted & basically evil Scientology is.
- Count B
It's toward the mid range. The narration wasn't great as I typically don't like authors to read their own work but Paulette's story was intriguing.
Paulette was my favorite because she is so very human and stay so naive for so long.
Mono-toned, untrained, and unemotional.
No. It was good for long commute times (as are most books).
