A good solid review of what Mormonism is/was at the turn of the 19th Century. Covers topics and misunderstandings briefly. Read it if you want a perspective from the time period.
In true Talmage style, not a light read.
But short and a good overview of the history.

For anyone investigating the Church of Jesus Christ, do yourself a favor and read our own perspective on our faith before being told what we believe by someone who has an obvious bias.

This book eloquently presents the story and philosophy of the Latter Day Saints from a Latter Day Saint perspective, that is, it is what we actually believe, not what someone else claims that we do.
Daniel Threlfall
This is a highly positive review of Mormonism. It focuses on the early history of Mormonism, but does not include a discussion of Mormon beliefs or faith, with the exception of the opening account of Joseph Smith and the final few pages about Mormonism and polygamy. As a history, it is a helpful account of Mormonism's beginnings.

Not knowing much about the sect, I thought I would investigate a bit. Interesting if you dont know much about mormonism but alas just more to be filed in the fairytale section in my opinion.
