My Top Book Pick: Uncultured An unflinching memoir from Daniella Mestyanek Young, who survived both the Children of God cult and then the male-dominated US Army. You’ll be both horrified and amazed at all she’s been through to become the person she is today.
Daniella and I met in 2017 on ACP AdvisorNet.org. At the time she was thinking about her next career step when she finished her Army commitment — perhaps a day job as a military security analyst, or maybe a CIA/FBI agent. So I asked, “What would you really like to do?” And she revealed that she’d like to share her cult experience stories.
As result of that initial conversation I hold an autographed copy of her book in my hand!
