Excellent book. Background research on cults was very interesting and helpful. Being able to hear what it was like inside the classes was very interesting and chilling. Well done Mr. Rosales. Keep up the good work!

…. in the chapter on alternative theory…  [is that] Keith Raniere [is] the Beast from the Book of Revelation? …  The author is …  speculating that Keith Raniere could have cloven hooves because he has a physical disability that causes him to walk on the balls of his feet. He is calling this disability a Devil’s walk! ….
The book begins with an interesting background on infamous cults and the damage their mind control can do. The Bronfman sisters appear to be an integral part of this unfolding story, so it would have been nice to get some perspective on how and why they differ so from their philanthropic father.
Were victims of NXIVM consenting adults? They were free to leave, but didn’t, their blackmail collateral provided willingly. Our strongest chains are in our own mind. The book’s look into the lives of these people leaves me wondering if Allie Mack is a victim or a culprit. Didn’t she start out with good intentions? Should the two people on trial be Keith and Clare? The book American Cult leaves me wondering and looking forward to the trial to learn more.
As an Expian I approve that he gave a simple account of his experience without vengeance or the need to justify it as good. The impressions of people were spot on. Anyone curious about what it was like or impressions of several people should read it.
Finally a book describing NXIVM in detail. Great book, can’t wait for the movie one day!

  • This is my third published book. My first novel was Elemental Shaman. I am a contributor to Mysteries of the Ancient World with Graham Hancock.

    My background is Anthropology, I have a degree from Vanderbilt. And my GPA wasn’t 2.26. So, I wanted to place the reader in the intensive and have you meet Allison Mack, Clare, Sara, Christine Collins, Mark Vicente, Brandon Porter, and of course, Keith Raniere, just like I did. And I knew Allie Mack from the Vancouver film community before I saw her again in Albany.

    I didn’t pull any punches. I describe NXIVM indoctrination, mind-control, and group-think techniques. If you want a watered-down account, don’t read my book. If you want to be in the belly of the beast, please pick up a copy.

    And to the NXSCUM member who is trying to tamp down the story and prevent people from reading the book, don’t worry. I already submitted a statement to the FBI and ICE about your criminal activities with NXIVM.

    To everyone else on this website, thank you for the support. To Frank, thank you for your courage!

    • Félicitations ! I hope you sell loads and loads of copies. I am definitely going to read it very soon even though I cringe just seeing Christine Collins name.

    • Bravo on getting your book published and on escaping NXIVM, and thank you for shining a light on the evil and crazy that comprises Keith Ranere’s cult and cult life.

  • “By his own admission, the authors actual time and experience with NXIUM was very short and very limited. It seemed to me that the author was trying to get a firsthand account about his very limited experience with NXIUM out in a hurry. For that reason the book falls flat on its face.”

    This Outsider would love to hear reviews from Insiders.
