The following are comments from a number of people of diverse Scientology-related demographic backgrounds who have read, or allegedly read, Memoirs of a Scientology Warrior (also available on Kindle):
It is an invaluable record of a remarkable history and contains many insights that were revelatory to me.
Your lies, whether you know it or not (and I do not consider that you are unaware), serve the Scientology cult head’s command intention.
Former Scientology insider:
I’ve read a lot of books and there are some writers that I struggle reading. They don’t flow or keep you interested. This book is not just interesting but it flows and is easy to read… Marty answers just about everything in this book. It is much more accurate and interesting than the Wright book. Nothing is taken out of context.
Critical analyst of Scientology:
It’s a fascinating book, and there is a lot there that will contribute to the growing archive.
Buy and read if you are an expert, or just curious, and you’re in the ex Scientologist community and know who Marty is.
Overall, Marty, your book was both a vindication of the workability of the subject of Scientology and also a poignant and honest representation of the failed organization and the brilliant imperfect man who started it all. And you’re right — the extremists in both camps will hate it. But I reckon that those who can hew to the middle path will love it.
As in his first book, Rathbun once again feels compelled to tell us that the genius of L. Ron Hubbard’s notion of a “clear” is a human being who simply knows his or her “basic personality.” Rathbun is supremely satisfied that this is what Hubbard gave him all along. Rathbun knows himself, and that is enough. But after getting through this book’s 326 pages, it’s even clearer to us that Marty Rathbun hasn’t even begun to understand himself or what he did in the name of Scientology.
Church of Scientology blogger Vince Fletcher:
Marty Rathbun was electric shocked – he says so.
