Very insightful, and an interesting/ entertaining read too. If you don't know much about the Amish, this is the book that will give you a good overview into Amish history as well as their lifestyle and beliefs.

The author grew up in an Old Order Amish family, so he is something of an authority in a personal sense. It covers just about every aspect of their lives as well as their origins and their struggles to preserve their way of life.
