Let me begin by saying I have had much respect for Steven Hassan as a cult expert who’s writings have helped me heal after escaping the cult of Jehovahs Witnesses so I began to delve into this book with confidence and trust in the authors ability to present an unbiased academic review of the subject. What I found was someone who is clearly partisan and presents a very unbalanced view of the subject. This is sadly just another inflammatory writing meant to fear monger the public. I am deeply disappointed in Mr Hassan he has lost credibility with me. It is very difficult to find unbiased factual information in this day and age on any subject, this book is does not help the situation but contributes to the problem.
