The Secret World of Cults was one of the first books that pulled me into learning about various religious groups. I constantly go back and refer to this book when I am asked a question regarding a specific cult. The book is extremely short. Nevertheless, excellent information can be taken from it's contents and the book is fairly up to date considering Heaven's Gate occured about five years ago. Many color photos adorn the pages giving the reader an opportunity to see cultic symbols as well as the leaders first hand. The book includes a wide range of topics, just to name a few: freemasons, the knights templar, satanism, voodoo etc...One of the best things about this book is that the author gives an unbias interpretation of these groups. It is extremely difficult to trust a writer who gives you the impression that he or she is out to start a crusade, especially when they don't cite credible sources.
Yeah baby this book is one i have yet to read but it said i may win 50$ if i write a reveiw so TADA!
