"Friedman shares the story of her journey into and then out of cult life with honesty and courage. I found the book to be deeply compelling and very well-written. ... I find myself thinking a great day about this book in the weeks since I finished reading it. Highly recommend!"
"The Gentle Souls Revolution is a fascinating exploration of the insidious nature of cults and the author’s 5-year journey from indoctrination to escape. ... Friedman deftly weaves together her own experience, a well-researched exploration of cult tactics and strategy, and a roadmap for recovery and self-reclamation."
