it took me a while to get through it, but it's excellent. i didn't know much at all about cannon or the period of church history in which he was involved. but now i know several things about him AND about that time of the church's history. basically george q cannon his hard core and the Lord placed him where and when He did for all sorts of wise purposes. thanks ben and rach for the book!
I am truly inspired by George Q. Cannon's life. The letters between him and his wives were particularly fascinating and touching. In fact I used his "chastising" letter to Martha Tellie in a church talk a couple weeks ago. But overall I felt the book was a little belabored and bogged down by Davis Bitton's writing style.
