Forbes magazine ranked Tom Cruise as the most powerful celebrity in the world. With three Golden Globe awards, three Academy Award nominations, and 27 films with an average box office gross of nearly $100 million,
People magazine's choice for the "Sexiest Man Alive" in 1990 is unquestionably one of the biggest movie stars of our time.
He has also become one of the most controversial, for his outspoken championship of Scientology, for his criticism of Brooke Shields for turning to the "Nazi science" of psychiatry for help with postpartum depression, and for the time in 2005 when he jumped on Oprah Winfrey's couch proclaiming his love for Katie Holmes. But for all the headlines and the rumors swirling around him, the real Tom Cruise has remained surprisingly hidden: until now.
For two years, acclaimed investigative journalist Andrew Morton has been uncovering the true story of Tom Cruise: from his days as bullied "little Tommy Mapother", to his early stardom, to his romances, and his increasingly public involvement in the world of Scientology. With new sources and exclusive interviews, Morton brings us never-heard revelations about the private, sometimes shocking world of Tom Cruise.

Just a long Tabloid Piece
Nothing new that the tabloids haven't reported in the last 20 years. I'm not a Tom Cruise fan but often I think that he's targeted for all the wrong reasons. He's scientologist, so what? There are worst things he could be.
Morton goes into detail about alpha man, TC and his heavy relatioship with Scientology.
Never knew that much about this cult until I dowloaded the book. Don't expect to hear
any detailed gossip about gay runours. The book's all about Cruise's crazed-driven rise to
the top and the people who help him get there.
Beware of "Mr. Perfect" !
Looks like he believes his own press clippings.
There seems to be many discrepancies between his childhood friends and his version of his early years. Things aren't always as he wants us to see them.
