Comedian Steve Allen's son was a member of a cult for eleven years and he wrote a book called, Beloved Son, essentially for him to read to consider other points of view. One chapter was on the Moon cult and I was asked to supply much of the information on that chapter. Steve was a great supporter of my work. When he was asked to fill in for the Sonya Live show, he asked me to do the interview to help promote the hardback edition which was released on the 10th anniversary of the Jonestown tragedy- November 18th 1878.
Combatting (two "t"s) Cult Mind Control was published in hardback with a simply atrocious cover of the author's objections, before it was re-released in paperback in 1990. During the PR tour for the book, Hassan tried using contact lenses, but he never felt comfortable wearing them. In this interview, callers ask about Scientology, the Children of God and more. in 2014, Hassan bought back the rights to his own book, and substantially updated the book to the Internet generation and includes terrorist cults, human trafficking, much more on mind control and undue influence methods, updated his approach to helping those deceptively recruited into cults and much more. For those who have read the original and the new volume, they say the new book is SO much better.
