Jon Atack: Scientology and hypnotism - even some ex-members can't admit its central role - 2014-10-25
Jon Atack is the author of A Piece of Blue Sky, one of the very best books on L. Ron Hubbard and Scientology. He has a new edition of the book for sale, and for more than a year on Saturdays he helped us sift through the legends, myths, and contested facts about Scientology that tend to get hashed and rehashed in books, articles, and especially on the Internet. He was kind enough to send us a new post.
Thanks again for another guest post, Jon. What are you looking into this time?
JON: I've been talking to a recently defected former Scientologist who blogs as 'Mockingbird.' He left earlier this year, after 25 years in the cult. He has steamed ahead and investigated hypnosis in a series of articles.
