By Leah Remini
5 out of 5 stars
I think Leah Remini is someone that you either really like or really dislike. I, for one, actually really like her. Would I want to hang out with her everyday? Probably not but she would definitely be a friend who would have your back and reading this book, really proves that.
I have been fascinated by Scientology and what makes people so into it. I’ve watched documentaries, read books about it. And reading Troublemaker, it takes you deep inside what it takes to be in the “religion” and what it takes to leave it. Leah never completely knocks what it stands for, she just points out the hypocrisy of it’s members. The whole situation with Tom Cruise will really hook you in. And she doesn’t even really put him down but makes you look at the way celebrity is thought of in that world and really our world.
This book is what I look for in a autobiography. There is the good stuff in here. I could not put it down once I picked it up. I laughed. I hurt for her. I loved her family even more than I did from watching her show. She speaks her mind and doesn’t apologize for it and boy, am I glad she does! I am sure the Scientologists are on the defensive now but there have been too many stories that all sound so similar for it to be untruths. Great read! One of my very favorites this year.
