    I have to do a project on cults for Sociology class, so I borrowed a copy of Jonestown. Everybody these days knows what Jonestown was, but I had no idea that a survivor of the horrifying ritualistic suicides had written a memoir of the whole ordeal! Very disturbing book, but also an interesting look at history and manipulation of human groups.
