The Kindle edition is now available at Amazon Books, at What Is Wrong With Scientology? Kindle Edition. The whole introduction and part of Chapter One is available at this link.
In the meantime, Haydn James happened to stop by the other day and I gave him my proof copy which he finished and sent me his feedback on. He agreed to sharing it with you.
Haydn James’ Review of What is Wrong With Scientology?
Finished reading your book. As an experienced Scientologist, I
wondered: what will I get out of reading it? The answer? A great
deal, a very great deal.
For me it answered a number of unanswered questions, but most of
all (and having finished reading the book I know you will love
this) it confirmed for me that my current spiritual journey and
purpose to help others is as it should be. Not because you, Hubbard
or anyone else told me so or because my views happen to coincide
with yours but because I know it to be true for myself. And that is
I told you when I visited you and Mosey that I have never been
happier. That wasn’t quite true, I am all the happier for having
read your book.
I would have finished reading it sooner but I made the mistake of
putting it down to grab some food, at which point Lucy picked it
up, started reading and wouldn’t give it back. She loved it and
thought it brilliant!
Since I have now read the proof you kindly provided, I thought it
only fair that I also buy it, which I have done and posted a
review. I describe it as “A unique book on Scientology”. And it is.
But I also believe you are the Tom Paine of Scientology. I believe
this book will be to the subject of Scientology and Scientologists
what Common Sense was to the American people and their ultimate
freedom. Just as Tom Paine discussed and destroyed the validity of
willingly giving up ones freedom to an uncontrollable entity known as
“royalty”, you discuss and destroy any notion that one should
become a slave to a subject and organization designed to free
people. Like Paine’s tract “Common Sense”, the truth in your book
is unmistakable and unavoidable.
In a word … brilliant.

Apparently, I may have reacted too soon. A second listing for What Is Wrong With Scientology showed up on Amazon books. When I inquired of Amazon, they indicated it appeared someone hijacked my title to divert sales; would investigate and get back to me within a day. So, if anyone saw the original short-lived version of this post, you’ll understand why this initial comment and the revision below. Apparently these initial sales results of What Is Wrong With Scientology? have got some outlets looking to turn a profit:
Broke into overall top one hundred books in first 24 hours.
Continues at day three as #60 on overall Hot New releases list.
Continues at day three as #1 on Other Religion, Practices and Sacred Texts.
Continues at day three at #17 Hot New releases in overall field of Religion.
In response, a middle man has created an entry on Amazon Books in What Is Wrong With Scientology? The list price is $28.95. I am providing the link here to the original Amazon listing so as to save folks 11 bucks per copy by buying directly from Amazon books. If you want to tell people about the book, please share this exact link. Otherwise, if you simply pass on the title or author, your friend might wind up spending more money and waiting longer to receive it.
The original direct-Amazon (and thus most economical) link is:

24 June 2012
I, Wendy Honnor, IAS Freedom Medal Winner, Minister and Field Auditor have now resigned both as a member of the Church of Scientology and as a member of the International Association of Scientologists.
I agree with all the points raised in the New Year 2012 email of Debbie Cook, former Captain of the Flag Service Org, and it is for these reasons that I have resigned.
To those of you who are my friends, I shall look forward very much to hearing from you.
- I am continuing my international practice.
- I am also continuing the Worldwide Auditors Guild – which I established in 2005 and which now has 600 members in 53 cities 26 countries.
- I am also continuing my successful work helping cancer patients spiritually by using ethics tech and always in close coordination with their medical doctor. I have a hat write up I am very happy to give any auditor who would like it.
The only way out is out. I am free.
