The outspoken actress, talk show host, and reality television star offers up a no-holds-barred memoir, including an eye-opening insider account of her tumultuous and heart-wrenching thirty-year-plus association with the Church of Scientology. Leah Remini has never been the type to hold her tongue. That willingness to speak her mind, stand her ground, and rattle the occasional cage has enabled this tough-talking girl from Brooklyn to forge an enduring and successful career in Hollywood. But being a troublemaker has come at a cost. That was never more evident than in 2013, when Remini loudly and publicly broke with the Church of Scientology. Now, in this frank, funny, poignant memoir, the former King of Queens star opens up about that experience for the first time, revealing the in-depth details of her painful split with the church and its controversial practices. Indoctrinated into the church as a child while living with her mother and sister in New York, Remini eventually moved to Los Angeles, where her dreams of becoming an actress and advancing Scientology's causes grew increasingly intertwined. As an adult, she found the success she'd worked so hard for, and with it a prominent place in the hierarchy of celebrity Scientologists alongside people such as Tom Cruise, Scientology's most high-profile adherent. Remini spent time directly with Cruise and was included among the guests at his 2006 wedding to Katie Holmes. But when she began to raise questions about some of the church's actions, she found herself a target. In the end, she was declared by the church to be a threat to their organization and therefore a "Suppressive Person," and as a result, all of her fellow parishioners--including members of her own family--were told to disconnect from her. Forever. Bold, brash, and bravely confessional, Troublemaker chronicles Leah Remini's remarkable journey toward emotional and spiritual freedom, both for herself and for her family. This is a memoir designed to reveal the hard-won truths of a life lived honestly--from an author unafraid of the consequences.… (més)

I love her writing style and her way of telling her story. It's very.. "Leah" if you see her personality via her shows (I discovered her via Scientology and its' Aftermath show on Netflix) it's very on point and in your face but she tells it like it is and is not afraid.

Big kudos for her though. For standing up against what she had believed in her whole life and questioning it. It's brutal and ruthless when she had the courage to speak up and those in Scientology did what they could to crush her. She had an amazing support system and was one of the lucky ones where she wasn't left alone to fend for herself as she left Scientology.

I'd rather wish there was more to it, maybe more on how she came about with her show on Scientology. The end of it felt like it was quick and abrupt. It's still a great read.

PS. Tom Cruise is a jerk. ( )

This is a beautiful, courageous, painfully honest look at the effect of the cult of Scientology. I can't possibly sufficiently express my respect for Ms. Remini for writing this book and baring her soul and telling the truth that the Scientologists never wanted us to know. ( )

As someone who is a little acaemically obsessed with cults and Scientology, I was really excited to put this book in my ears. It was pretty good, due in large part to Remini's reading of the audiobook. There wasn't anything super crazy and the writing wasn't spectacular but it was an interesting view into the world of Hollywood and Scientology, and it was a perspective I hadn't heard before. ( )

Read this book out of curiosity regarding Scientology. I've been a fan of the author since King of Queens. This book sounded just like her .. brash, opinionated, honest and non apologetic. I liked how she didn't try to make herself look like she was perfect. She was brutally honest about herself, and the "organization" we have all heard so much whispered about. Very informative, if not scary! ( )

Enjoyable read on one woman's journey through the peril's of Hollywood. Good background on her early years and how it all came to now.

She came across as she talks- brash and funny no holds barred. What I really liked about it was she didn't come across as a 'victim/oh poor me these people are mean'. She was educating on her journey. It's an easy read, really enjoyed. ( )
