Her well-researched book is a must-read for anybody wanting to understand mind control and how intelligent people can be converted to a cult, or be born into one and not see the problems, contradictions, and errors in their belief system. And a must-read, also, for anyone needing help with undoing all the subconscious brainwashing and mind control messages and beliefs they were imbued with growing up Mormon.
Another plus in reading the book is that Lindsey is a brilliant person with a captivating and interesting writing style and depth of insight and ideas that lets you know you are in the presence of genius. We are all indebted to her for the work, time, and effort she went to, to get this book written and published -- no small task!
The research she did, alone, attests to the genius of this woman -- Autistic, but you would only know it or be able to believe it if you knew that many of our most intelligent scientists at such places as the Caltech Think Tank are highly functioning autistic geniuses. Luna Lindsey is a remarkable young woman who has authored a book you won't regret having spent your valuable money and time on. And it's a great reference guide, besides!
As an expert in organizational culture, I've often wonder how toxic, highly coercive organizations recruit, retain, and control their members when it is so obvious to everyone outside the organization that it is unhealthy. 10 years ago, I intensified my own research and found that my own church, (yes i was a Mormon, active, in a Bishopric actually) employed many of the same influence techniques used by the People's Temple, The Branch Davidians, and many others cults.
Where does the unexplained, irrational guilt come from? Why would your LDS friends and family shun you for speaking up about lies and evidence hidden from members? Why can't current church leader own up to past problems and renounce them? How are people spiritually abused in this central authority, high conformance organization and what is the cost? This book lays out a compelling insight into these and many other issues to help the reader reclaim your life.
I would also recommend this book to anyone who has a loved one in Mormonism and can't understand how any reasonable, intelligent person could be sucked into it. Cult research shows how easy that is and how highly intelligent people get hooked in ways they might not see.
I applaud this book for it's attention to research detail and its heart for helping the hurting.
