What a fun and engaging book. There are fourteen chapters and each is about a different character in LDS history. Some of the stories are funny, while others are weird. The author has gone to great lengths to research these people and write this book on them. I love reading this book and learning about different random events and people that I may not have really known or heard about before. I would recommend this book to readers that enjoy reading about real-life events in LDS history.
