This fast-paced David and Goliath story taps into our deepest longings and turns up the suspense until the startling end. When Paulette Cooper, a smart and beautiful young Holocaust survivor struggles to make it as a writer in New York, she is bullied, threatened, and terrorized by a rapacious criminal enterprise seeking her total ruination. How did she survive the onslaughts of insidious deception and callous brutality cloaked in the guise of a religion?
The Unbreakable Miss Lovely is the shocking true-account of journalist Paulette Cooper who shined a spotlight on the Church of Scientology back in the 1970s with a bestselling paperback called "The Scandal of Scientology." For telling the truth she nearly paid with her life..
I'll be very surprised if a Hollywood bidding war for the film and television rights to this story is not already taking place.
This book has it all - sordid doings and nefarious behaviour by a "church", a beautiful and courageous heroine alone against a powerful and vengeful enemy, shocking twists and turns, a host of details never revealed before.
I devoured the book.
It is well paced, well written, deeply researched by a first-class reporter and very moving.
It begs to be made into a blockbuster movie.
Read it and weep that Scientology has a tax-exemption from the IRS.
Read it and rejoice that "The Unbreakable Miss Lovely" is alive and well and that her story is told.
An amazing record of the experiences of an amazing lady.
What I want to know is how a "church" was allowed to get away with the things they did to Ms.Cooper, and still do to their critics today? And why was it only by sheer chance the frame job against Paulette Cooper was uncovered?
And most of all I want to know why is this "church" not only still getting away with these kinds of activities toady, but as a 501(c)3 tax exempt entity to boot?
Spend any time at all looking over Mr. Ortega's web page at http://tonyortega.org and it's obvious these types of activities are still going on. The shame is they are using tax free money to do it with, and that needs to stop.
I highly recommend reading "Scandal of Scientology" before reading this book, then you'll understand why the Guardians Office, now called the Office of Special Affair, freaked out the way they did.
And engrossing, disturbing, and detailed look into the underbelly of Scientology. And an amazing story of the "Unbreakable" lady who lived through it. Highly recommended, and can't wait for the movie.
This is an incredible story, and told in such a masterful way. The down side, is that this is a real life thriller, with real life consequences for those who were/are stalked by this dangerous, fanatical organization.
