Might have been good, but I can’t stand the narrator

The guy narrating sounds extremely nasally, and has very noticeable breathes after each sentence. You can also hear him stumble often whilst reading, most likely cause he is rushing to get through the book. As a result, I feel like I’m not absorbing any information being read out to me, which is a shame. Don’t purchase.

Good content Not good delivery

Although the content is borrowed from other books mostly it is collated well, it’s just the narrator seems like he is read it for the first time and does not have a clear voice like a slight speech impediment I found it hard to follow at times , I like audio books to be clear and unambiguous I will finish the book with the real book which is pointless as I like to get books in as I commute to work everyday .

The author is very knowledgeable. Well Explained

The author is very knowledgeable about cult mind control. It is important to listen and understand how intelligent people can be manipulated into joining a cult and even leaving their families. My wife was born into and left one of the cults mentioned in the book.

Must-listen a book for all, especially parents.!

Must-listen a book for all, especially parents. These types of groups are on the rise, and their main target is often school-aged children through the early '20s. You might be surprised how fascinating this book is as well as surprised to realize you might have bumped into one or two yourselves. Education is the inoculation!

Fascinating guidebook!

A must-listen for anyone who is or knows someone in a controlling relationship, whether it's personal or group-centered. Hassan explains how and why people "buy into" thought-control techniques and how to talk to someone you know who is being controlled by someone else. He is very honest about his own involvement in the Unification Church (Moonies) and how he got out. Concrete case study examples are given for clarity. Fascinating listening. It also has a number of videos on YouTube that are highly informative and well presented.

The explanation was very well

The explanation was very well After encountering the Transcendental Meditation cult while working with biotechnology communication, I grew curious about cults. This book made a lot of sense, and will even assist in my science communication efforts. Especially about outright insulting a movement or its leaders to followers. It will just feed the misinformation being fed them.

This is simply an amazing book, just amazing.

This is simply an amazing book, just amazing. I feel that anyone who has ever been involved in a cult, even for a very short period and maybe even more so for a short period, or thinking of joining something that you are not too familiar with, needs this book. I have never listen one like it and this man is truly an expert. You will not go wrong by listening this but will learn a great number of things that I doubt you ever knew. Thanks for the great work.

Leading Book! Recommended!

The author explained the best book about identifying mind control techniques and how to handle individuals who have fallen under the spell of cults and their often charismatic leaders. author tells the personal and absorbing tale of his journey into and out of the Unification Church (Moonies) over twenty-five years ago, and how he has helped many victims escape the grasp of mind control cults. Filled with fascinating stories from survivors and important tips on how to effectively handle ensnared mind control victims, Combating Cult Mind Control: The #1 Best-selling Guide to Protection, Rescue, and Recovery from Destructive Cults deserves its status as a bestseller on the subject.

I adore this book!

This book helped me realize how pervasive mind control groups are. I learned about the characteristics of mind-control groups and how to recognize them. It also helped me understand why it was so hard to leave the group I had been in since I was young.

I highly recommend this book!

This book FINALLY hit the nail on the head as to what had happened in our family! As a matter of fact, it delineates all the factors that go into ANY controlling relationship, whether at work, in your home, your church, a club you belong to, or even your nation that you living in and love. I highly recommend this book!

Fascinatingly explained!

Fascinatingly explained, informed, up to date, authoritative, all of this is based on the social sciences. Combating cult mind control is a much-needed book, easy to follow, understand, and interesting. If you have been subjected to the undue influence of a cult, a group, or a codependent relationship, if a loved one has, a friend or is just interested in the subject, then you have to buy it, re-listen it and tell your friends about it. If you see the importance of knowing CPR then you will see why gaining and enhancing cult-awareness and of their mind control tactics is essential to protect our society's mental health and help the healing of those of us that have been victimized.
