1-0 out of 5 stars I second that opinion
An incredible waste of $2 at the local book disposals (100's of copies available!). I cannot add anything to the first review of this book, except to say what has been read cannot be unread.

1-0 out of 5 stars Rambling Nonsense
This book was a complete disappointment. I was expecting a coherent explanation of the theological progression of the Heaven's Gate Cult. I was hoping especially for a discussion about the cycle of disillusionment and revitalization that occurred in the cult's history. What I got was a rambling series of non sequiturs trying to relate the cult to every mythological tidbit on the planet. I found myself skipping pages while the author would go off on some strange tangent. You know how some people cannot tell a story because they keep getting distracted. This was it. It's like the author had swallowed Joseph Campbell's collected works put them in a blender and poured it out. If a book ever needed an editor. This was it. Most of the time I donate books to libraries or thrift stores when I am finished with them. I am chucking this one into the recycle bin. Don't waste your money. ... Read more
