I bought this book in the belief that it might contain a more recent exposé of the cult of Scientology - after all, that was what the title and description of the book promised.

Yes, it was more recent as it covered the divorce settlement between Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes but, even when it briefly seemed to criticise $cientology, one got the feeling it only did so in an attempt to put a positive 'spin' on undeniable events. Even more striking were the details that were omitted, such as the "Dead Agent" policy or technique of defamation used by the cult or the infamous "Fair Game" letter by Hubbard, in which his followers were told to find evidence of "blood sex crimes" against anyone whom Hubbard deemed to be an enemy. Readers of alt.religion.scientology may recall that policy resulted in the curious case of Tom Klemesrud whom the cult allegedly tried to frame - see the account on Wikipedia, at [...]

The seven year sojourn Hubbard spent in the UK (at Saint Hill Manor, East Grinstead) after he had fled America to evade his creditors was completely omitted, as was the detail that the first ship in the Sea Org had hitherto been a cattle ferry. The case of Susan Meister was also completely omitted.

I suppose I should have known what to expect when I saw the word "unbias" rather than "unbiased" in the description, but it has been some years since I last read any babbling posted by a cult member - I had simply forgotten the sort of imbecilic mistakes they make.

This is a reasonable overview of Scientology, and does manage on the whole to be relatively unbiased. Some of the shadier aspects of this controversial religion are examined. Although one gets the feeling that the author is probably somewhat sympathetic towards the cause, there are a good few less than flattering incidents here.

One of the saddest tales was of a young man with undiagnosed untreated schizophrenia: due to the family's belief that psychiatric help was "evil", and the fact that Scientology failed to help him, he was abandoned by the church (who declared him a trouble source and banned him), and later murdered his own mother with a steak knife. Sadly, not the only example of a disturbedand mentally unstable individual killing because the treatment they needed was banned. There are plenty of other, though less dramatic, incidents related, for example the fact that Scientology brazenly targets celebrity adherents.

It strikes me that this is a book which would be hated by both rampant anti-Scientology activists and proponents of Scientology, as being too positive for one and not positive enough for the other! But for a book that is attempting to be unbiased, that is a compliment. This is not a detailed history, and is less than 100 pages long, but a whistlestop tour of various events, notable Scientologists, major controversies, et cetera.

However, the whole thing is in dire need of editing. There are countless badly phrased sentences, awkward constructions, idiosyncratic punctuation use,and needless tautology, so I won't attempt to list them; let's just say that the overall writing style could use a good deal of help. The author also has a recurring problem with using bizarrely mistaken vocabulary.

Although the book had some interesting facts in it, it did not cover enough detail, and there were several noticeable typos and misspelling of peoples' names in it. I am glad that I didn't pay for the book!

The book begins well and is interesting for the first three chapters, but from chapter four onwards the book looses interest focusing on celebs and online legal battles. I was left wanted know more about the church, rather than its famous members.
