A somewhat centralist book on the Mormon religion. It deals more with the cultural aspect of Mormonism as it is known in the public consciousness both in it's vices & virtues. For me, it strongly reminded me that Mormons are very polite, courteous, and respectful people besides their devotion to a religion that's a complete work of fiction. It also puts Mormonism in perspective of being an American religion, and posing it's acceptance contrasted with the American ideals of religious pluralism. Though I think it omits, or ignores, the fanciful nature of the Mormon faith that dictates behavior for it's followers. I do think it offers an interesting and elevating perspective of Mormonism in general.
