Flawed and deeply personal, but the only book of its kind, written before cults were able to keep their hooks in their members through the courts. Deeply enlightening for parents, family and friends of cult members. ( )

A friend of mine recommended this book to me when she found out that a family member of mine was involved in something she thought to be a cult. It was an interesting book, and I did learn a lot about the various methods that cults use to break down mental defenses. I would recommend this to anyone who is curious about this subject, or concerned about the involvement of a friend or family member in something that seems suspicious. ( )
