This book raises questions that require answering by any Jehovah's Witness, as well as by any thinking individual. It prepares the honest "seeker into the things of God" for that "knock on the door." The misinterpretations of scripture presented are valid. The statement that the New World Translation does not support the Jehovah's Witnesses' own views is valid. However, the weight placed on the fact that the New World Translation is a very bad translation overall, is not quite strong enough. Nonetheless, it tears down the JWs' doctrine well enough.
The truth, however, is that no.standard sold out JW will ever read the book though I'm sure the Chosen will, however corrupt it may be for the masses. These elite must keep up with the negative press, to either increase mass control, or bend with the tide.
That's why it is written to the seeker, and the missionary, and not the JW.
Remember, no Rutherford, Russel , Joseph Smith, Buddha, Dalai Lama,, Muhammad, or originator of the Baha'i "faith"...or any other group failing to recognize the Jesus of the Bible as Messiah, just as He is revealed...ever fulfilled any prophetic utterances about their arrival. No...they all had to invent myths to position themselves, as this book shares of the JWs originators. No...only Yeshua .. Jesus the Christ,,fulfilled prophecy made across a couple thousand years before His arrival.
My prayer is that all who want to understand God will read this book and be warned - and all who want to be more prepared to understand, love and help the JWs and be more prepared to be Gods servants in leading them to truth, freedom, and the love that is Messiah Jesus The Lord, will read this book too.
God blessed Wilbur Lingle in the writing of this book. May He bless him for its provision, and those who read it with insight.

The author is claimed to have been a missionary in Japan for 35 years and received a B. A. and M. A. from Bob Jones University. Hence his authorship is influenced from this background and shows in the book to some degree.

The Title of book clearly states the Theme. Hence the parts in the book that are researched using Watchtower Publications to disclose "False Prophecies" that is (what was said would occur and what did not) are beneficial and rely upon the True Facts to support any conclusions. There's a Brief History Section along with a chapter in relation to the "Four Main Watchtower Presidents and their Character" which moulded the Watchtower Development to today. The chapter on "Inner Workings of the Society" are generally helpful to get the sense of how Watchtower Organization Operates, as well as chapter 3 which looks at the "Functions" for instance "Meetings, Witnessing, Thinking and Behaving Alike", "Gloating Over Those Who Depart" and "One Solution for All Problems." But within there also are comments in relation to certain Doctrines like the "Trinity, Holidays, Birthdays and Refusing Blood Transfusions", all teachings Jehovah's Witnesses are "fairly well known for" and hence find it difficult to see how these topics are ones "The Watchtower Society Doesn't Want You To Know" as the Theme Implies. Hence the reason why only 3 Stars as this is more to do with the Author's Own Personal Interpretation of Select Scriptures the way he perceives may rule these above practices unscriptural. Whilst he does give a rationale for his comments it could be equally presented a conclusion in support of Jehovah's Witnesses on those points. Hence those topics may detract from the theme of the book.

While there were some interesting facts in this book, most of it was just Witness bashing. Besides the outright lies, of which there were a few, it seems like the point of the book was to make the beliefs of Jehovah's Witnesses seem ridiculous. I'm not sure how their beliefs are any more far fetched than the beliefs of any other religion (Christian or otherwise) when looked at with a mind free of the ideas we are instilled with as children. When you break down ANY religion, it comes down to fairy tales and, as much as I hate this phrase, "opiate for the masses." All in all, the details were interesting. However, I'm not sure how accurate they are, since there were a few I know to be false, having grown up in the religion. The disrespect with which the writer speaks about the beliefs of the JW's gets irritating very quickly, and gets thicker as the book goes on.
