Book Review
The first half of this book is a biography of L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology, while the second half details the growth of the institution after his death and its prevalence in Hollywood.  It is quite a surprising read, both in the amount of detail Wright was able to gather on the secretive organization and in how deeply entrenched it is in Hollywood.
