Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief by Lawrence Wright

A history and exposé of Scientology.

Cults and Hollywood–two of my favorite non-fiction topics in one. I was so happy to pay any price to read Going Clear and I was not disappointed. Meticulously researched, extensively detailed, and thoroughly suspensful, I wish it had been twice as long. Crash writer/director Paul Haggis’s story weaves throughout the history of Scientology and it’s an amazing journey that really sheds light on the appeal of Scientology. Tom Cruise and John Travolta are discussed in detail, and I learned more about Sea Org (the elite arm of the religion) than I ever dared to dream I would. I am so sad that I finished reading this book.
