Ron Miscavige left scientology and states in this book that the final straw for him to go ahead and write his story was the fact that his son David was still having him followed. He found out one day when he bent over and grabbed his shirt pocket to keep his cell phone from falling out that his s...

No matter how bad things get, just remember: at least your dad never wrote a book about how you're a sociopath.

For my whole life I have believed that, regardless of the hand we are dealt, each of us chooses how we play our cards.
2.5 Stars. This memoir sounded interesting because it's from the unique perspective of the father of David Miscavige, the leader of the controversial Church of Scientology. Ron...

Scientology fascinates me. This book did not delve as deeply as I would have liked into what Mr. Miscavige probably knows about his son (the current leader of the cult), but it was nonetheless interesting.

It is hard not to sympathize with Ron Miscavige, who seems to be a decent guy who loved and loves his son. It must be very hard to have witnessed one's child evolving into one of the most evil people alive today.
Unfortunately, however, his memoir is not a particularly good book. Ron Miscavige's s...

3rd star added because I wasn't expecting full-color photos (or any photos) to be included.
Only rated 2 stars, because while it was interesting to learn about David's (& his siblings) early years, I disagreed with a major point of Ron's book. Namely, that Scientology was a sunny lollipop-fil...

Ruthless, a review and critique
It has been said that the reading of a biography or memoir is so often more interesting for what the subject omits from the discussion than for what the author commits to on paper.
Isaacson’s 2011 Steve Jobs biography is a case in point. In interviews and discussion...

there isn't any like oh my God revelations or real harsh view of scientology. I believe his abuse at the hands of the church however the information he gives doesn't seem like he was an insider. its...
