Oh I didn't even noticed! Not to worry, I love typos. Some of my favorite English words were the product of misspellings. Like "culprit" and "syllabus!" :)

very true and sorely misunderstood! thanks to the incredible work of scholar Sikivu Hutchinson and the accounts of former Peoples Temple members I spoke with, I address this exact truth in the book!

Wow, I am honored that you're reading my work, and I so hope you enjoy the book! I, too, take issue with the idea of "charisma." I address that a bit in the book. Thank you so much!

CULTISH by @AmandaMontell Amanda is a cool linguist AND a great writer (rude) and her new book is all about the language that leaders — in tech, business, religion, social media, anywhere! — use to manipulate and influence followers. So good. bookshop.org/a/1371/97800629…
