Ves the best possible chance of having sex with aliensWhatever the reason once people are in it's usually very difficult for them to leave Cults have ways of making their followers do loopy dangerous stuff to prove their loyalty and in return they get a chance to feel secure within the cult's embra. This book delves into a topic that fascinates many people from all walks of life How is it we wonder that seemingly normal people like you and me could allow themselves to be led so willingly to their destruction Unfortunately for me the author s writing style is so full of sarcasm and poorly attempted wit that I could only manage a few pages at a time while reading If it wasn t for the fascinating subject I would have disposed of the book well before the end What s ultimately disappointing about this is that the subject matter is deserving of people s time and effort to exploreWhile reading this book I found it very difficult to determine whether the author s comments where retelling true events or just a snarky attempt at humour that was ultimately misinforming I ve come away from the book with the need to do far research on the topic of cults so that I can discover for myself the truth of what went on within these hidden enclavesThe big takeaway from Zealot is not the evils of cults or the ease with which people can be manipulated but it s the author s complete disdain for any form of religion or spirituality and hence for anyone who has an interest in pursuing this subject in their life The subject matter of cults is interesting and this book will probably hold your interest however there are many informative and we ll written books available

Zealot by Jo Thornely

Ce with an added bonus of being utterly terrified of the outside world From the tragic JONESTOWN Kool Aid drinkers to the Australian cult THE FAMILY to the fiery Waco climax of THE BRANCH DAVIDIANS this book is a wide sweeping look at cults around the world from the host of the popular podcast ZEAL. A great overview on some of the most popular and well known cults in the area Mixed with some serious and some humorous jokes but sometimes the jokes overwrote the cults What I would have greatly appreciated would be some other books and shows that if anyone wanted to know about certain cults Thornely does this for certain cults

Why would anyone join a cult Maybe they're unhappy with their current religion or they want to change the world or they're disappointed with their lives and want to find something bigger or holier that makes sense of this confusing chaotic and dangerous world Or maybe they just want to give themsel. I rarely speak ill of a book Each to their own But this book was painful The humour is rabbity writing full of split infinitives and digressions Honestly just get to the point If the author spent time on clearly identifying the cults she was meant to be writing about and less time at poorly executed jokes the book would have felt less of an overwhelmingly frustrating drag I want my 5 hrs back Shame on me for finishing it What a waste of time

    Cults in one form or another have been with us since the year dot Belief in and dedication to a cult appears to be one of humanity’s great pastimes and they can and do exist in many forms Some are uite benign but there are others which result in terminal disasters It is usually the latter which create a fascination for t

    Meh More of a Who's Who of narcissistic cult leaders I was hoping for on the hows and whys of how these leaders gain momentumAlso the author's snarkiness is annoying A little bit of that goes a long way

    5 stars I read the physical copy while listening along to Jo Thornely narrating the audiobook which I think added to the experience For some reason goodreads only has the kindle version? I absolutely loved this I simply ate it upThis is the reason I read non fiction to learn something about things I don't know and to enjoy the experience along the way Jo Thornely wrote this in a very accessible but not lacking in the

    This was awesome and very Australian I learned a lot of interesting new stuff as well as in depth information about cults I'd never heard of And the last one who I had heard of and didn't realise was a cult leader

    Thanks to Jo Thornely I’m now obsessed with cults I need her voice flowing with humour wit and depth to explain

    Flippantly fun yet a serious topic that needs better treatment Sadly the book oversimplifies the uestion of why people do things a cult leader tells them too Thornely says the answer is both simple and complex but then gives the simplified stereotypical answer because God is telling them too Too be fair I uote from a chapter on The
