For those who think that the Franzes are living high off the hog from donations from ex-JWs, have never visited their humble home. If he breaks even on the cost of self-publishing his books, I'd be surprised. The Franzes have no children and any help they get from others is like adult children helping an aging parent.
This thread is disturbing me as people try to make personality judgements based on a book or the comments from others who might or might not have ever met the Franzes.
It reminds me of the days I would be out with the "publishers" and they would slice and dice other people in the congregation under the guise of being helpful.
