All you need to know about cults. What they are. How they work. How to help.
This book is an extraordinary guide to cults, groups that demand from their members conviction, devotion, and dedication and can also harm, sometimes deeply, their followers and their followers’ friends and families. Though this is a global phenomenon, there are different types of cult movements and different profiles for their followers. The breadth and complexity of the subject demands a clear and rigorous explanation. An attempt to break the silence and the simplifications surrounding this phenomenon that could affect us all, this book is a valuable manual for understanding what we are talking about when we talk about cults and how to evaluate the risks they present.
