What Others Say About Freedom of Mind

- Douglas Rushkoff
"Steven Hassan is a liberator. He frees peoples minds from the enslavement of cults and he does it with clarity, honesty and deep understanding of the human spirit. Freedom of Mind is a very important book."

Rachel Bernstein - "Your voice is calming and your words are strengthening and reassuring. I've learned a lot, have clarity, and feel so much better.

Thank you, thank you." Rev. K.P.

"USM deviates significantly from the benchmark criteria of PUC and Lesley. The number and significance of these deviations leads us to postulate that USM is neither a university nor a college in the generally accepted definitions of the terms, but rather a training organization for USM’s views and beliefs and how they manifest themselves in the post-USM careers of USM graduates." : University of Santa Monica Benchmark Analysis - January 10, 2012
