In related news, John Joseph recently completed work on an autobiography of sorts, dubbed "The Evolution of a Cro-Magnon", which is scheduled to be published later in the year. According to Joseph, the book shows "what New York City was like through the eyes of someone who went through its orphanage, foster care and group home system, then hit the streets at 14, surviving alone when N.Y. was the most violent city in the nation. You'll also see what it was like first hand to be on the inside of the Hare Krishna cult (made that way by the corrupt leaders not the original founder Srila Prabhupada) where murders, child molestations, drug dealing, rapes and all kinds of insanity took place in the name of religion and how I, along with other devoted followers of Srila Prabhupada, fought, and still fight, to bring them down and restore the movement to its once glorious position, disseminating the highest Vedic knowledge. And of course you'll get to read all about the true CRO-MAGS story. Trust me on that, not the B.S. that's on websites hosted by people who have been reduced to nothing more than Internet gossip queens, writing their warped versions of reality. You can best believe this book is one hell of a read so cop it."
