I have found this to be an exceptional work. It is an honest assessment. The interactions between President McKay and others is fascinating and enlightening!
Low quality history. It overemphasizes controversy in an attempt to be marketable to the masses. This is authorship with an eye single to the glory of sales. It's no wonder that one of the authors tried to smear Mitt Romney in an attempt to further this goal.
