WayDale Document Archive
a treasure trove of Way documents, including letters by Martindale to the Corps, pages from Corps manuals, Way policy statements and other Way documents in their original condition as they were sent out to the Way Corps. It also has audio files of Craig and Donna Martindale making demands, accusations, vile remarks and threats. The graphic and audio files give a good idea of the controlling and aggressive nature of Way leaders-- in their own words and tone of voice. The best "inside view" of TWI around (closed as of November 2000, but included on greasespotcafe)
The Watchman Fellowship

The Cult that Snapped, A Journey into The Way International
The most comprehensive book on the origins and nature of TWI, by former follower Karl Kahler. Many sections are Karl's freewheeling autobiography and written in sarcastic and irreverent style. But the book includes lots of information and interviews of former followers on topics TWI wants to keep hidden- the tyranny and adultery of founder Wierwille, sexual promiscuity among leadership, the silly "athletes" teaching, deaths of followers, mark and avoid, and so forth.
