Which Cult Should I Join?: A Choose-Your-Own Guidebook for the Spiritually Bereft by Jo Stewart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Entertaining tour of some of the weird and wacky cults out there, laid out in the form of one of those “write your own adventure” books from my youth. By answering a series of questions, you will find the cult most “appropriate” for you – or that’s the joke. Each cult is described in a page or so, which clearly barely does justice to some of the odd-ball beliefs out there, but it’s enough to whet your appetite for further study, should you so choose.

Of course what you’ll likely end up doing is playing with your answers to see where they lead, to find the kind of cult that would suit a rifle-toting believer in satan and his ways who also likes heavy rock music, or whatever takes your fancy. And of course you could always do what I ended up doing, which is reading it all from the beginning.

All in all, a well-written series of brief accounts of the stranger fringes of our world, well worth making a present of to someone you know – so long as you get to play along as well.
