For the first time ever, a former high-ranking member of the Church of Scientology is lifting the lid on the world's fastest growing cult. Duignan describes how, two years ago, he staged a dramatic escape from the elite paramilitary group at the core of the Church, the Sea Organization, and how he narrowly evaded pursuit by the Office of Special Affairs. He looks back on the 22 years he served in the Church's secret army and describes the hours of sleep deprivation, brain-washing and intense religious counseling he endured, as he was molded into a soldier of Scientology. He talks about the money-making-machine at the heart of the Church, the Scientology goal to Clear the Planet and Get Ethics In, and the punishments meted out to anyone who transgresses. We follow his journey through the Church and the painful investigation that leads to his eventual realization that there is something very wrong at Scientology's core.--From publisher description.

Work Description

This book is a remarkable insight into the murky world of Scientology. Despite John's obvious intelligence and raw ability, enabling him to climb to various leadership positions around the world, towards the end John realises that Scientology is not what he believed it to be. The story of how he discovered the lies at the centre of Scientology is a case study in emerging skepticism.
