Jon Atack packs a lot into a new short book — ‘Scientology: The Cult of Greed’

SciCultOfGreedWhat do you do if you’re Jon Atack and you’re already known for writing one of the best and most comprehensive books about the history of the Church of Scientology? Apparently, you do it again, but in digest form!

We’re pleased to announce that an 83-page, 13,000-word e-book by Jon that gives an excellent overview to L. Ron Hubbard and Scientology is now available at Amazon under the title “Scientology: The Cult of Greed.”

Atack’s lengthy previous book about Scientology, A Piece of Blue Sky, came out in 1990, and after 1996 Jon retreated from the field. We noticed that he began to resurface in 2012, and we thought it would be amazing to make his acquaintance and perhaps interview him. But things turned out even better, and Jon became a regular contributor here at the Underground Bunker. We’re still stunned at our luck.

But besides contributing here, Jon has also been making personal appearances to deliver addresses about Scientology. Having to think about how to cram a lifetime of research into a short talk was a tough proposition, but the result is what he’s now put out in e-book form.

The richly illustrated book hits all of the highlights of L. Ron Hubbard’s actual history and the controversies surrounding Dianetics and Scientology. And, since this is Jon Atack, it packs a punch. Even for a longtime Scientology watcher, this short book will have you running for the endnotes to see where Atack found such startling facts.
