    Lady,I read it a couple of years ago and have been directing people's attention to it every chance I get. It's a keeper and will never go out of stlye. It's spot on and anyone with common sense and reasonableness can't help but come to the same conclusions as it's author, Don Cameron. Thanks again Don !

    All of the nice comments about the book makes even me want to read it. And I'm the one who wrote it!

    It makes the only important points worth making.

    Some many debunking books about JW's flail around pitting doctrine against doctrine instead of holding the JW's to THEIR OWN standard and demonstrating the failure!

    The rub is this. Knowing how to use it to the best benefit.

    Unless the casual reader does more than merely understand the arguments they'll not be effective in using it to pry JW's away from their self-mythology.

    A follow up book which demonstrates a praxis would be most helpful.


    mark for later

    Sounds like a brilliant read - I hope that it helps many, many people.

    Btw.. I remember seeing a reprint of the very first Watchtower once. I recall thinking and saying what a pity it was that the opening statement in the inaugural magazine was totally wrong..It stated (in 1879) that Christ had already returned. Funny how I still carried on believing the Org, though.

    Good morning everyone and happy Saturday!!

    Don Cameron (the author of the book) just PMed me, and said that the best place to get the book is as it has current information added to the September KM..showing the Watchtowers dsperate attempt to control what JWs are reading. Anyhow..just thought you may want your own copy with the newest Watchtower BS in it.

    whoah, updated?


    I'll have to go do that.

    A five buck pdf download is a heck of a deal.

    If I could shake the war dept loose of twenty bucks, I'd do a paper one.

    Don! thank you so much for writing that awesome book!
