Scientology presents itself as a scientific approach to
spiritual enlightenment, but its practices have long been
shrouded in mystery. Now Lawrence Wright—armed with his
investigative talents, years of archival research, and more than
two hundred personal interviews with current and former
Scientologists—uncovers the inner workings of the church. We meet
founder L. Ron Hubbard, the highly imaginative but mentally
troubled science-fiction writer, and his tough, driven successor,
David Miscavige. We go inside their specialized cosmology and
language. We learn about the church’s legal attacks on the IRS,
its vindictive treatment of critics, and its phenomenal wealth.
We see the church court celebrities such as Tom Cruise while
consigning its clergy to hard labor under billion-year contracts.
Through it all, Wright asks what fundamentally comprises a
religion, and if Scientology in fact merits this
Constitutionally-protected label. Brilliantly researched,
compellingly written, Going Clear pulls back the curtain on one
of the most secretive organizations at work today.
