  1. Got this book from the library today. I'm 60 pages in, and it's pretty interesting. It covers parts of L. Ron Hubbard and the story of Scientology that I've heard before, but in much greater detail. (The first chapter focuses on Paul Haggis, BTW). Written by Lawrence Wright, who won a Pulitzer Prize for The Looming Tower. Link to The Master, because Going Clear is highlighting even more parallels; some seem to apply to Freddie and some to Dodd, though. Could be a reflection of the dual/competing narratives in Hubbard's own biographies. This isn't the first time I've thought this, but Hubbard's concept of "engrams" (traumatic subconscious memories, more or less) reminds of how John Eldredge write about "the wound" in Wild At Heart.
