    Jon Atack's book I enjoyed reading back when it came out & it was most influential on me.

    I look forward to his new release.

    Highly suggested reading for anyone !

    No, He was worn out by battling $cientology, like the old samuri movies where after a battle the hero goes off and meditates somewhere to regain his strengths then comes back to finish them.

    the longer you gaze at the $cientology puzzle the more pieces fit together, and Jon has been looking at this longer than I have...

    Great page from Volney's book. I wonder who he was thinking of when he wrote it.

    I so pleased this book is being re-released. It's the first critical book I ever read. I borrowed it from a library and had to hide it at home by stealing the book jacket from one of Hubbard's books (might have been Science of Survival) and wrapping A Piece Of Blue Sky in the jacket. It sat on our bookshelf looking very innocent from the outside .

    I'll definitely be buying this book even if I never read it. John Atack deserves to reap some rewards for his important work. He is a hero to me.

    Thank you for posting this. I don't think I would have found otherwise and the interview was filled with data and facts that I was not aware of. I shall have to read Jon Atack's new release of a piece of blue sky.

    Just posted a piece on the Jon Atack's "Blue Sky" and the battle
    he had to get the first version out, at Infinite Complacency.

    http://infinitecomplacency.blogspot.com ... =BP_recent

    Jon Atack is issuing an unexpurgated version of A Piece of
    Blue Sky, his seminal work on the movement – a book that was
    almost strangled at birth in the US courts.
