Yes, obviously some people left for the same reasons expressed by "James," as well as many others. James (not his actual given name) was actually the first to leave.
As you noted, Dusk's book was published in 1980, about the same time as Norman Paulsen's autobiography. I think that the correct understanding would be not that anything in Norman's book was included specifically in reaction to people leaving (so that new people could read about these things before they got involved), but that since these things were explained in Norman's book, and it was being published, people would have a better idea of what was involved before they joined. So many people say that what Norm explained in his book spoke directly to their spirits and tied everything together for them, but, of course, there are no doubt many people (Ketch is a good example of one) that just cannot get past some of the "wilder" concepts and so reject the rest. That is just the nature of the mind, don't you think? The very thing we are trying to free ourselves of?
