Survivor's guilt, attitude, and plenty of laughs!

Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology - Rebecca Paley, Leah Remini

Leah Remini has been through it all and she will never let anyone walk all over her again.


In her tell-all book, Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology, she discusses growing up in a religion that taught her how to 'clear the planet' and how she still uses some of the positives from LRH in her life, even after splitting from the controversial religious group. 


Remini explains enough of what she and others went through to allow the reader to decide for themselves if Scientology is a cult or just a religion who request's your whole bank account when the plate is passed. 


For me, it was incredible to read how Remini grew up in this mindset, being as independent and smart-mouthed as she is. You would think someone as strong as her would have realized the atrocities happening within her own church sooner. 


That is not the case though, as she explains how tough it was to be audited every hour of every day for years and the commitment that had to be made in order to feel like she was a 'good person' by LRH standards. 


Definitely a great read with snarky comments on the people Remini thought were there for her, and how she has overcome her fear of being free.
