First off, you fail to provide any evidence that you even read the book. You know as well as I do that scientology prohibits its members reading critical information and censures them severely if they do. And in a cult culture of absolute conformity ruthlessly enforced by snitching, relentless interrogations and even surveillance, they will find out! Per the policy of disconnection, scientology prohibits you from any contact with critics, including your own family--unless you want to be kicked out and harassed yourself. These are well-established FACTS.
HAD you read it, you would know that this is an extremely well-sourced book! Its tone is professional and journalistic. Its sources are plentiful. (If you want "hate," check out one of the countless character assassination hate web sites sponsored by "Freedom" magazine and other more nefarious "church" sources. Speak about "unsourced"...)
The book exposes in great detail the fraudulent life history that L Con Hubbard claimed and that the cult members dutifully repeat to this day. These sources have been available to a multitude of authors, and they all came to the same conclusions. And they all prevailed against court challenges all over the English-speaking world. The L Con Hubbard fraud is widely debunked! So you (who hasn't read the book) are right, and they are all wrong--including their fact-checkers and the courts that presided over all the frivolous law suits against those books?
Whether Hubbard is alive or not has nothing to do with it. The "church" has faithfully continued to execute his tradition and policies of dishonesty, "black PR" (dissemination of trumped up or false claims against its critics) as well as their persecution with legal, extra-legal and illegal means. They harassed this book's author personally and dragged him to court in several countries--and lost in ALL of them! Interestingly, they NEVER even tried the "libel" angle! Telling, isn't it!
If you STILL think this book promotes "lies," go find out for yourself. Browse the internet, and see what people have to say about the cult's relentless greed, family disconnections ordered by the cult, human rights violations perpetrated against members and former adherents. If you must, pick up Dianetics (easily available online for free) and ask yourself if any of Hubbard's quack "science" REALLY is backed up by anything but the say-so of this school drop-out who claimed so many false credentials.
But do yourself a favor: Only go to a "church" or "mission" if you are prepared to take a personality test that is deemed fraudulent by the courts in France (a judgment upheld in appeals), and if you enjoy being relentlessly pestered and hit up for money. Be also advised that this is the only "church" that will not reveal its "teachings" upfront. A thorough brain-washing and financial fleecing precedes that privilege! (Or look up "Xenu" on the internet for a good chuckle about Hubbard's demented audacity).
You call yourself "Zero." I will not stoop to what the cult would undoubtedly do with that, as ad-hominem attacks are the mainstay of their unimaginative playbook (Check out their numerous hate sites, or the "Freedom" propaganda organ which would make a N Korean functionary flinch. Talk about "libel!"). I will, however, point out that your moniker coincides well with the number of points your "review" of an unread book scores!
Disdain for scientology? This is simply about exposing a charlatan deemed "schizophrenic and paranoid" by a California Superior Court, and--in the words of a London High Court--an "immoral and socially obnoxious" cult. You wanted the courts to speak--there you have it!
