Nine books on the rise and fall of creepy cults

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog Jess Dukes tagged nine books on the rise and fall of creepy cults, including:
My Life in Orange: Growing Up with the Guru, Tim Guest

At age six, Guest and his mother went to live with Indian guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh. Tim, renamed Yogesh, saw less and less of his mother—he was raised by his new family on a series of communes as they traveled around the world. Tax evasion and murder charges finally toppled the guru, freeing Tim of his orange robes for good.
Read about the other books on the list.
