Karen's book was initially 800 pages, and later abridged to 426 pages.

Might be an interesting read, but I wonder what made Karen throw out half of the book...   c||o:

Watch Chris Shelton's interview with Karen to find out. Also, if you read the OP, she didn't throw out half of the book. She's providing that content on her website for FREE.

Hi Everyone,

Karen Pressley has a new book out that is currently available in Kindle format on Amazon.

Escaping Scientology: An Insider's True Story,  by Karen Schless Pressley

Quote
My Journey with the Cult of Celebrity Spirituality, Greed and Power
Karen and Peter Schless were seduced by Scientology’s celebrity spirituality and detoured from Hollywood careers to join its extremist group, the Sea Org, to work in leader David Miscavige’s inner sanctum. They built the walls of their mental prison while getting absorbed into a radicalized lifestyle where danger, captivity and abuse were normalized. After three escapes Karen chose between two unbearable options.

Karen's book was initially 800 pages, and later abridged to 426 pages. For readers wanting to research topics in-depth, Karen has opted to offer the original content, in an interactive way, via chapter excerpts on her website. (Website design by Jefferson Hawkins)

Chris Shelton recently interviewed Karen on his Sensibly Speaking podcast #108 in which she talks about her experiences within scientology and her book.

Additional book versions and distributors to come soon.

I'm hoping it will be the start of the 'wedge in the crack', and maybe start getting the FTC's interest. Or at least some ambitious State Attorney Generals.

Yep, anything's better than nothing.  Every little bit helps.

Thanks for the link to the article, BB.   L-O-:

Quote from: MICHAEL CORKERY, New York Times
Search ads for addiction treatment are lucrative. Treatment providers, in some cases, have been willing to pay $70 per ad click, according to an analysis that Mr. Williams’ group conducted and presented to Google executives.

We had a thread about this sort of thing, a while back:
Keyword marketing - "rehab" is #18, "treatment" is #19 Cost: $$$

Prices seem to have gone up quite a bit since then, if Mr. Williams' analysis is correct.

Quote from: MICHAEL CORKERY, New York Times
In a series of phone calls and a meeting in Washington, D.C., Mr. Williams presented the company his research. He highlighted that some of the biggest buyers of ad words related to treatment had been accused of misdeeds related to insurance fraud and sexual assault.

As have some of the Network Partners on his own site.

Unfortunately, this seems to be only about limiting advertising, and not an attempt to weed out referral sites from the search results.  I'm sure that will help some, but the web is littered with deceptive sites (and not only related to drug rehabs).  I'd be more impressed if they made a better effort on their search results.  I seem to remember google went after affiliate marketers a few years ago, and this referral scam is nothing more than an "in real life" form of that.

Google is making some changes. Any thoughts on how this might impact narCONon's money flow?

Well... not when you have the undisputed king of deceptive rehab marketing involved. I happened to go to the website of FacingAddiction.org mentioned in the article, and guess who is listed as a Network Partner ( https://www.facingaddiction.org/action-network/partners )

Per Wickstrom's

A Forever Recovery

Add that to his homes in Clearwater, Torch Lake, and the 11,416 square foot home shown above, located within shouting distance of Marne's Serenity Rehab, and you've got quite a colony.

Or a hive.

Love to you both... and thank you for your efforts.

We could sure use some moles in Battle Creek, to help speed the process of exposing Per's games over there.

This!

Meanwhile, Per is raking in the $O$ $$O$$.

Remember that 9,000-sq. ft. pad mansion he purchased?
