What is Scientology really? Behind the glossy logos and sleek advertisements and South Park parodies, what do Scientologists really believe and practice? Is it really a religion? Who was L.

I grew up in Scientology and worked for it the organization for 25 years. This critical analysis covers the key aspects of its beliefs, practices and structure from the bottom to the top, including not just the confidential Xenu story but details all of the upper level scriptures. I go into detail about what goes on inside Scientology churches, why their members get involved in the first place and what it takes to get out should someone decide to leave.
If you want to know the truth about Scientology and how destructive cults lure people in, take advantage of them and ruin their lives in the process, this is the book for you. This book is an informative guide for anyone who has been involved with Scientology in the past as well as anyone who wants to understand what it’s really all about.
