Going Clear: Author Lawrence Wright goes inside the world of the Church of Scientology

"Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien" has a first look at a new book that takes us inside the world of Scientology, uncovering details about the secretive group that were never before known.

The book is called "Going Clear, Scientology, Hollywood, and the prison of Belief" written by Pulitzer Prize winning author Lawrence Wright. It's already in its second printing. The church's response has been swift and furious.

This morning, Soledad talks with Wright about his controversial new book.

Transcript and statement from the Church of Scientology regarding the book are available after the jump.
