In 1971 Paulette Cooper wrote a scathing book about the Church of Scientology. Desperate to shut the book down, Scientology unleashed on her one of the most sinister personal campaigns the free world has ever known. The onslaught, which lasted years, ruined her life, and drove her to the brink of suicide. The story of Paulette’s terrifying ordeal is told in full for the first time in The Unbreakable Miss Lovely. It reveals the shocking details of the darkest chapter in Scientology’s checkered history, which ended with senior members in prison, and the organization permanently damaged.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gripping! This account of the shockingly brazen attempt to gaslight then frame the journalist Paulette Cooper is one of the best books I've read about the limits to which Scientology will go to silence it's detractors. It's a great read for anyone interested in stories of spies and espionage regardless of your knowledge or interest in the machinations of the church of Scientology. If you're already interested in reading about Scientology, you cannot miss this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scientology - I'ts always worse than you think! This is a must read book not just for those who speak out against scientology but for those who may not know or understand the depths that this organization will go in order to shut up dissenters. Paulette Cooper wrote about the perils of scientology long before the internet, anonymous, or the many defectors who tried to speak out against the illegal, immoral, and unethical policies of scientology. Tony Ortega writes clearly and uncovers the history of Paulette from her narrow escape from the death camps to her trials and tribulations at the hands of a secretive order of scientology. It is a good read and Tony had explored and studied and researched to substantiate the facts. Don't just read this book - read it and pass it along. You will not regret it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Indefatigable Mister Ortega This reads more like a thriller than a journalistic exposé. A superbly-researched account of how author Paulette Cooper was hounded by the so-called 'church' of Scientology for decades, the book grips from start to finish. At first I thought the narrative tended to jump about too much, but there is good sense behind Mr. Ortega's telling the story at different places and times. There are many fascinating sidelights on this cult and its insane confidence-trickster founder L Ron Hubbard scattered through the book, the fruits of Mr. Ortega's years as one of the foremost researchers into Scientology. Only two minor faults: no photographs (an omission now rectified at Tony Ortega's 'Underground Bunker' website) and sadly no index, which would have been helpful for researchers. But these are minor gripes. That Tony managed to write such an engrossing book while running the Underground Bunker with its detailed daily bulletins on this litigious and greedy cult, not to mention keeping order among the lively commenting community of 'Bunkerites' there, as Scientology slowly but surely disintegrates, is little short of prodigious. For me, this was a must-read—not only as someone interested in cults, but as a tribute to Paulette Cooper's miraculous courage.
