I got an advance reader's copy of this book and after about a month I got around to reading it. I picked it up because I live in Oregon and wanted some local history. My first problem is the book begins with about 50 pages of chronology that I didn't even read. That said the collection of local newspaper articles that followed were the meat of the book, and I enjoyed them. They told a pretty clear story about what happened mostly dry material but I kinda like that stuff. I however did not care for the group of articles published after the implosion of the Rajneesh cult. As I suffered through those articles all I could think of "this book has a afterword?!?" I read the afterword so fast I barley remember it. Needless to say it didn't blow me away in fact if you want my copy all you need to do is ask...seriously
