Lakeview Book Club: Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief by Lawrence Wright
This infamous expose of Scientology by investigative magazine writer, Lawrence Wright, tells you more than you ever expected to know about this ersatz religion. This truly scary tale will leave you with chills and depression that our government gave up its blocking of Scientology's status as a religion. This status allows mistreatment of members on the scale of far distant dictatorships we have only heard about. It is right here and happening now! It is quite a story, extremely well researched and documented. It will be of interest to anyone curious about Scientology, celebrities and their secret lives, science fiction and its links to religion and to anyone interested in true crime. There is something for almost everyone!
