SUPERB JOURNALIST, SUPERB BOOK,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Church of Fear: Inside The Weird World of Scientology (Kindle Edition)
John Sweeney is a superb journalist, who combines passion for the truth with humour, an eye for nuance, and zeal for getting the story.
This book expands upon his excellent work on two editions of the BBC's 'Panorama', the first of which in 2007 led to his infamous shouting episode.
The book takes us behind the scenes, and fleshes out the background to his time spent investigating the church. It's scary, funny, thrilling and very necessary.
Sweeney is a rare beast: as good a broadcaster as he is a writer. His unfussy, self-deprecating style is a joy. His work is important. Do buy and read this.
