I finally finished the book (Amazon, Goodreads) that "inspired" this show, and "inspired by" is the best way to put it. Assuming George Pendle's research into the people and events is correct, the series is something of a "remix" of the facts.

Some changes appear to be to increase drama, while other changes might even be changed to make the story more believable, or flow more logically, particularly with the limited time available in the number of episodes per season.

I wonder how the Church of Scientology would feel about the 3rd season, if it gets a 3rd season. Saying "Ron stole from Alister Crowley's Thelema to create CoS" sounds like the kind of thing that would get CoS upset. They might even dislike how Ron is portrayed, as a boastful liar, if the book is anything of a template for the 3rd season.
