>Book Review ~ It Came From Within

I liked this book a lot. The author cleverly ties in Monster Movies and Wrong Thinking.

This is from the back jacket:

“More frightening than Frankenstein. More destructive than alien invaders. They will numb your soul, steal your life, and threaten your most treasured relationships.
Who are these creatures? Where do they come from?
At the fall of mankind they were unleashed on the world, wreaking havoc and sending thousands fleeing from their homes. And their lair is found in the last place anyone wants to look – the mysterious depths of their own hearts!
But be encouraged, these monsters have a weakness. They can be defeated. You can escape their clutches and be free of their influence.
Learn the truth – before it’s too late!

I especially like the way he starts each chapter with a couple of quotes from movies… like this:
Newt: My mommy always said there were no monsters – no real ones. But there are, aren’t there?
Ripley: Yes, there are.
Newt: why do they tell little kids that?
Ripley: Most of the time it’s true…
Newt: We’d better get back, ’cause it’ll be dark soon, and they mostly come at night…mostly.
Aliens (1986)

and this one:

Klaatu: Your choice is simple. Join us and live in peace or pursue your present course and face obliteration. We shall be waiting for your answer.
The Day The Earth Stood Still (1951)
Gee, that one sounds pretty relevant for today.
Full Disclosure:
I got it from the Library but it’s probably some kind of Religious Book.
