Troublemaker Book Summary


#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • An eye-opening, no-holds-barred memoir about life in the Church of Scientology, now with a new afterword by the author—the outspoken actress and star of the A&E docuseries Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath
 
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.

Praise for Troublemaker
 
“An aggressively honest memoir . . . Troublemaker is the most raw and revealing Scientology memoir to date.”Entertainment Weekly
 
“Leah’s story is a juicy, inside-Hollywood read, but it’s more than that. It’s a moving story about the value of questioning authority and how one woman survived a profound crisis of faith.”People
 
“Remini [offers] up some juicy tidbits from her decades in the church.”Newsweek

    Incredibly interesting book. I appreciate Leah's vulnerability and transparency. Good for her for having the courage to leave an evil "religion" and being set free. Praying this book is used to open many more eyes.

    Enjoyed the book and finished it within 24 hours. Good balance between explaining Scientology and her story.
  • One of the best autobiographical works out there

    This story is not written about the horrors of Scientology but about the writer's life which Scientology has consumed a tremendous portion of. She talks about the good, the bad and the ugly of herself and the good and bad of the religion/cult she belonged to and what caused her to get out and do so in a very public way. I have fallen in love!

    Outstanding! Leah is incredibly brave! She gives us an insight only a celebrity inside the Church of Scientology could share. She's not vindictive. Her story is to help others inside the Church get out and those outside the Church understand why it was so difficult to leave. No one in Scientology is clearing the planet, but Leah is saving people, lives, families and friends by sharing her story. Leah is a fighter. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn about the power to control minds or be brainwashed. Simply wonderful!
  • Loved!

  • Amazing Book

    This book was freaken amazing. If the rating had more stars to choose I would. I'm an ex Christian and I could really relate to a lot of stuff that Leah said and felt. Departing a religion that you grow up with it's hard . Dr. Ray Hagins quoted Some People Just Can't Let Go! Coming into a consciousness that is not the one that we were raised with is truly a spiritual emotional, intellectual and cultural shock for us. For someone it is simply unbearable because they are emotionally attached to the concepts in their imagination, which is not really concepts in their imagination but a psychosis that was placed within their psyche, causing them to see what is NOT real. Respectfully Santiago Martinez
