Atack exposes Hubbard's bizarre imagination and behavior, tracing the creation of Scientology in the years following World War II to perhaps its final schism following Hubbard's death in 1986. A shocking book that reveals all: the abuses, falsehoods, paranoia, and greed of Hubbard and his pseudo-military Scientologist henchmen.

About the author (1990)

Jon Atack was a 'public' Scientologist for nine years. He trained as a counsellor and did the secret 'OT' levels, but left when he discovered the criminality which put eleven members, including the founder's wife, in prison. He spent years interviewing former members, digging out records and unmasking the many false claims of its founder, Ron Hubbard, before publishing A Piece of Blue Sky. Jon is the author of many papers on the subject of Scientology, and has been acknowledged as the leading authority on this subject by academics the world over. Jon has counselled hundreds of former members and survived extensive harassment from Scientology. He has four children, and one grandchild and lives in the heart of England, where, as Voltaire advised, he cultivates his garden.
