Nominated for 2009 Book of the Year -Blown For Good

Nominated by Foreword Magazine as 2009 Book of the Year award finalist. Marc Headley provides a rare, never before seen insider’s look at life inside Scientology. He spent 15 years at their secret headquarters – a 500 acre property located deep in the California desert. The local townspeople were told lectures and films were made there. But is that all that was happening? It is the location of a multi-million dollar home for L. Ron Hubbard, built two decades after his death. It is the home of Scientologys current leader, David Miscavige. So what really happens there? Are the stories on the internet true? How does Scientology conduct management of its day to day operations? Could stories of armed guards, weapons, staff beatings, and razor wire fences be true? If so, how could a facility like this exist in modern day America? Hundreds of staff tried to escape over the years. Some succeeded but were never seen or heard of again, most failed. Why were people kept here? What was it that went on at the headquarters of Scientology? This is the story of what happened behind the Iron Curtain of Scientology.

“…the Scientology cult, is I guarantee you, a thousand times more bizarre than you could have ever imagined.” The John & Ken Show, KFI AM 640

“Headley’s book also provides stunning material that has rarely been collected in one place…
a damning account of life working for Scientology leader David Miscavige at the secretive desert base…” Tony Ortega, The Village Voice

“…a new book exposing alleged details about not just Scientology — but Tom Cruise’s association with the church — is available…” The Washington Post

“A big tip of the hat to Marc Headley, for publicly speaking the truth about Scientology…”

“Marc Headley, a former insider at the church, has written a tell-all book…about his 15 years of work with Scientology. And folks…you can’t handle the truth…”

“…well-paced and an entertaining read.”
"Be the change you want to see in the world."
