    Weak content. Thin. Not impressed. More of a joke book. I wrongly read this thinking it would include insights into manipulative and coercive psychology such as the title Subtle Power of Spiritual Abuse, Why Christianity Must Change or Die or the like. This is like a PG movie for high school kids. Kinda fun but truly lacking.

    Good fun but wears thin after a while. It's a bit like an infographic that's been stretched out to book length. Good fun but wears thin after a while. It's a bit like an infographic that's been stretched out to book length.

    What a great read! This book is full of irreverent humor and random insight. I bought it as a joke to be honest, but I really did enjoy it!

    I was hoping for information on how to take the steps to start a church, but the book is really more about how to form a belief system and things to consider. It's a fun book to read though you don't learn much from the jokes and playing in the book. I feel like this book was more of an outline with jokes put in for content rather than actual steps or information, but I could see it being useful for someone not as far along in the process as I am/we are.

There are a couple of resources and ideas in one chapter that we'll be using as a group having to do with fundraising. The book is enjoyable if it's what you're looking for.

    In the process of outlining all of the important steps to consider while founding a new religion or cult, Phil Athans provides a humorous look into the process. Along the way he addresses how many gods your religion should have, how to attack followers, and provides 5 sample religions to illustrate how to put it all together, including his own, the Cult of Phil.

If you've ever wanted to have the love and adoration of a cult of followers, and encourage them to donate all of their worldly possessions (plus have sex with them, if that's what your God/Goddess/Goat requires), this book will guide you along the way!

    A book that I saw and immediatley thought I would love it. After taking a closer look at the cover, I discovered I was right. This book was the perfect book for me! I love humorous books and one as high brow and thought out as this one, is just icing on the cake! The way the author talks to you as an equal and everyone else as putty in your hands really ceats a sense of camaraderie between the author and you! I do not read books twice, but I would read this book another three times! If you like a A book that I saw and immediatley thought I would love it.

    Es war eine Qual dieses Buch bis End zu lesen. Schlechter Humor, viel zu oft. Würde 2 Sterne geben, aber da waren schon manche interessante Sachen im Buch geschrieben. Für diejenigen die sich seriös mit „Religion Gründung“ oder „Sekte Gründung“ beschäftigen möchten und diejenigen die sehen wollen warum die Massen Religionen und Sekten so leichtsinnig folgen, sollen das Buch nicht lesen. Nicht empfehlenswert.
