The story of Jonestown, the masacre and the survivors is incredibly moving and very powerful. I knew a little about the events of the masacre and refer to it when teaching psychology, but this tome goes well beyond a superficial recounting of the People's Temple members and the death of its followers. The author's interviews with people who had left the Temple and those who had stayed, and survived really delivers the human side of the story without needless sensationalising. Fondakowski has put years into the realisation of this book and her passion for it really shows. I had a real sense of getting to the truth in an unbiased way as I read story through the words of those who were there and those who still bear the scars of this terrible event. A highly recommended read for anyone interested in reading about these events and the Temple in much more depth than is typically available.

Having read almost all literature on peoples temple, Jonestown and Jim Jones, and tried to get a comfortable perspective on it and the murder / suicides, this one helped me to gain some closure.
