#29 — Going Clear

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

  • Rating: 2/5
  • The same author wrote The Looming Tower, which was about Islam. Although it was also a book about religion, The Looming Tower was the better book
  • There were a lot of people I didn’t know — since the stories jumped around, it was very hard to keep track of the cast of characters. An org chart would have been helpful
  • Most of the book was a bio about Hubbard and his women. A portion of the book was spent talking about the celebrities associated with the religion, echoing the content of entertainment news shows. The book particularly was interested in talking about how Travola was gay
