Almost everything you want to know about Mormonism  May 11, 2010
This book discusses the history of the Mormons and their tortured travels to Utah. Their philosophy and beliefs are presented in a very objective manner and the reader is left to draw their own conclusions about some of the issues raised. This is a very good read and I really learned so much. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in the religion.
Perfectly Unbiased for the the Mormon and Non-Mormon Alike  Apr 21, 2010
I read this book and loved it. Having a thirst for knowledge on the subject I have read several books on the subject ranging from both spectrums of "Anti" and "church approved" material.

The authors of this book present the information in a very non biased, purely informational, manner. Yet they don't hold back anything. If you are mormon, this book will not cause you to forsake your religion like other "anti" books will. However, you will find yourself knowing more than 80% of mormons out there in terms of how the church is structured.

If you aren't mormon you will find this to be a very modern and up to date source of information concerning the subject.
Good look from the outside in  Dec 2, 2009
If you want to learn about Latter-Day Saints, without really learning about Latter-day Saints, this is a great book. The author tries to give both sides to the LDS story. I found the chapter on the Book of Abraham VERY lacking in facts, and the last chapter talks about a new convert that doesn't believe the Jesus Christ is a God (I am not sure how she got baptized) but these are the 2 biggest problems. Otherwise, it is just a look at the LDS Church from someone that is trying to get the story straight without really knowing the whole story. I really wish more books by non-Latter-Day Christians tried as hard to be accurate.
Mormon America  Sep 25, 2009
This Book shows us how the LDS Church members are highly educated, and they should be admired, very smart and what ever they touch turns out to be excellent. They are very well to do, because education is number one. America could learn something from this Religion.
Excellent book  Aug 3, 2009
This book contains a treasure trove of information about the Mormon Church -- the beliefs, practices, business organization, recruitment, history, etc. I learned quite a lot and I also found the authors' treatment fairly balanced, although they don't shy away from the controversial topics such as racism, polygamy, the Mountain Meadows Massacre, status of women, academic freedom at BYU, etc. I'm not entirely sure why Mormons would find this book offensive because it seems to me that they've already decided that religious dogma (and the community that's been formed around it) is more important than striving after truth. For many, this trade off appears to be an easy one to make, particularly since, as the authors point out, the Mormon community is a very tight one and they take good care of each other.

I interviewed several ex-Mormons for my own book and found their experiences to be fairly represented here (even the sacred underwear!). The people I spoke with, however, weren't willing to blindly accept Mormon dogma, even though they risked estrangement from their loved ones. This represents a small percentage of Mormons to be sure, but it does highlight the effectiveness of childhood indoctrination, Mormon or otherwise. Paul Gehrman, Author, Kaleidoscope
