Editorial Reviews

Review

"Holy Hell is Gail Tredwell's captivating, inspiring, instructive story of why as a willing slave she endured her guru's cruelty, insults, hitting, kicking, and terrorizing for twenty years.
In spite of predictable retribution, Tredwell felt morally compelled to expose her guru's lies and her own complicity. Her brave, intelligent memoir is valuable for its depth and searing honesty--a gift to seekers vulnerable to similar widespread misconceptions about spirituality and the role of surrender."
--Joel Kramer & Diana Alstad, coauthors of The Guru Papers:  Masks of Authoritarian Power

"Writing through the wise lens of hindsight, Tredwell weaves into her fascinating story of liberation from the depths of a modern-day cult, the hidden dangers of blind faith. Her insights drawn from years of personal experience render this book invaluable for individuals considering, or perhaps unaware they are already on, such a path."
--Steven Hassan, author of Freedom of Mind: Helping Loved Ones Leave Controlling People, Cults and Beliefs

About the Author

For two decades Gail Tredwell lived in India and served as the personal attendant to Amma, commonly known as "The Hugging Saint." At the end of 1999, she made her daring break from the organization. After years of recovery, she is ready to share the inside story of ashram life and her unique perspective of this famous woman.
