I've read a lot of cheesy LDS books so I was happily surprised that this one didn't fit into that category. I thought it was well written and has information that some LDS members might not know.

I picked up this book on a clearance rack because I like LDS history and thought it looked interesting.

Important book for book of Mormon readers.

A very interesting book about the restoring of additional scriptures brought forth in the 1830's.
Would be especially good for anyone who hasn't read other books of this event nor have visited the historical places where this event happened.

The story of how The Book of Mormon came to be. Well and thoroughly researched. Can be used as a reference book but read easily. Plainly and simply told leaves the reader to decide for themselves.
