"This is an exciting and interesting book (the parts about Operation: Snow White and other related operations were particularly striking and frightening) that Wright has tried his best to try to keep level even though his bias against the “facts” presented by the church is manifest. L. Ron Hubbard was a known teller of tall tales and the church itself has purchased and collected as much documentation of his life as possible, withholding access to most people, especially journalists. Whether you choose to believe them is something that The Church of Scientology has spent millions of dollars in court costs and smear campaigns trying to prevent. The more books like this that are written, the closer we get to that elusive fractal truth."  --Joe T.
