Paulette Cooper Life After Scientology Episode 27 - 2018-11-04
Paulette Cooper has written 23 books plus approximately 1,000 articles, and has won 8 writing awards.* She launched her career as a freelance writer after graduating from Brandeis in 3 years with Honors. She spent a summer at Harvard studying comparative religion, and then completed an M.A. degree in psychology.
Her first major article -- which appeared all over the world -- was the true story of how Paulette spent a week as a (successful) stowaway in order to write about it.
Her first book, "The Scandal of Scientology", which has become world-famous, is still a classic after 50 years. What she learned about this cult lead to an almost full-time crusade on her part to expose Scientology and help those they were hurt by them at a time when few outsiders knew much about the cult and those who did were afraid to speak out.
