Omaha, Neb. (PRWEB) June 10, 2014
Author William Smith and his family spent several miserable years in a cult. His escape and awareness of the gravity of his condition inspired him to share his cult experiences. In his book, “An Unusual Journey” (published by Xlibris), Smith educates the public about the real nature of cultism and other closed societies.
“An Unusual Journey” warn readers against the dangers of being tricked into joining a closed society through the story of the Smith family that joined a cult in Canada. It was not long before Smith’s parents discovered that cultism is not really the paradise that the cult members led them to believe. It was a horrible place where children lived an isolated, traumatic existence and suffered molestations and other forms of abuses.
Told with honesty and courage, “An Unusual Journey” is a compelling account of a man’s personal struggles of living in a cult, his escape and journey to recovery. It explains the general ideologies behind cult formation and describes how its leaders get vulnerable adults to join their ranks.
Through his book, Smith wants to raise reader awareness so they will be on guard against cult influence. “I want the readers to realize the consequences of cultism or closed group society especially when children are involved. I hope that they will be inspired to do what they can to combat the evils of these societies,” he said.
