For the rest of the year, we're counting down our top ten favorite books of 2013, one a day, as voted on by the Darien librarians! Coming in at number 8: Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief by Lawrence Wright. While Abby was reading it earlier this year, she submitted this to You Are What You Read:
"A new book on Scientology? BRING IT. I am now about 1/3 of the way into Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood & the Prison of Belief and enjoying every morsel. The author Lawrence Wright has produced some new information that digs deep into L. Ron Hubbard's past and the roots of Scientology. Perhaps the only thing more fun that reading this book will be the responses and lawsuits cooked up by Scientology. I can't wait to get to the Tom Cruise stuff."
Stephanie adds: "Fascinating look at Scientology, one of the best-researched books I’ve read all year."
