I didn't really care for the author's style of doing a chapter of history, then a chapter closely following the new's story. I suppose I would of preferred an all-out LDS Church History book, but this one has come highly recommended!

In all honesty I found it to be a little bit sensationalized, but still quite good on explaining a lot of trends/cultures within today's LDS church and the change between an independent economy/polygamy lifestyle to that of an all-American faith and consumer lifestyle.
