All of this material is carefully footnoted and attributed.  There is also a very detailed, up-to-date and precise explanation of how deprogramming actually works illustrated vividly through case vignettes used as working examples. This book is based upon Rick Ross' decades of experience exploring the world of cults and facilitating hundreds of interventions to get people out of destructive cults.

Kaiwind.com learns that the emphasis of Rick Alan Ross’s cult study has always been put on Falun Gong. In his book’s preamble, Rick Alan Ross says that the book is for former Falun Gong cult members Hao Huijun and her daughter, Chen Guo. Rick Alan Ross says,

“I met Falun Gong survivors Hao Huijun and her daughter, Chen Guo, after attending an international cultic studies conference in China. Their painfully acquired insight, wrought by a horrible Falun Gong– inspired self-immolation, which took place at Tiananmen Square during 2001, is both compelling and inspiring. They quite literally bear the scars of their experience and are icons of truthfulness, compassion and forbearance.

“This book is dedicated to Hao Huijun and Chen Guo and all former cult members who have moved on to find freedom of mind.”

In Cults Inside Out, Chapter 12 and Chapter 13 illustrate Rick Alan Ross’ observation and research on Falun Gong.
