Read from January 03 to 07, 2012

When I'd learned that its publication eventually led to the author's excommunication from the LDS church, I became curious to see what all the fuss was about. Although LDS leaders may have found the non-hagiographic nature of the book upsetting, plentiful footnotes and informative supplements prove her work to be both accurate and well-documented. Brodie's flawless prose, infused with keen insight and rich commentary, adds greatly to the already interesting story of the remarkable life of Joseph Smith.
