I did not need convincing that Scientology was irrational, but I found myself continuously surprised by just how arbitrarily bizarre the beliefs are. Also, I wasn't quite aware of just how insidious and cruel it could be. I highly recommend the book. The author keeps the editorializing to a minimum and lets his reporting speak for itself.

So much more interesting than I could have imagined. Expected a dry history. But this is a very interesting, yet terrifying, explanation of this so-called religion. Very glad I read it. Only down side: Will never be able to look at Tom Cruise without my skin crawling.
