Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Finally, a book for the general public that explains what Mormonism is all about. This book is long overdue. It should've been titled Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Mormonism but Were Afraid to Ask.” —Senator Orrin Hatch

I found this book to be tremendously helpful in understanding more about Mormonism. It was easy to read, easy to find subjects I was interested in and easy to remember. Will I convert? Probably not. I'm Catholic, however it gave me a larger insight and a positive look at this religion after reading a really negative book about someone who left the church. I also passed the author's credentials by one of my very devout Mormon friends and got a tentative thumbs up, which is more than I expected. Mormons are generally very protective about outsiders reading accurate church literature. I recommend this book to anyone who has no idea why their Mormon friends don't drink coffee or soda or don't do anything including shopping on Sunday's.
