An exemplary piece of in-depth, investigative journalism, Going Clear paints a vivid picture of the notoriously insular Church of Scientology. Beginning with the life of church founder L. Ron Hubbard and including the church’s fight for legitimacy, its enormous wealth, and its harsh treatment of critics–this is a fascinating account of a religion most of us know very little about.
