It's a bit tedious, a lot of detail about his ancestors' founding of the Church of Christ. It's an interesting way to write a family history, and occasionally amusing. But I found it drags on, and I just wasn't that interested in his family history. One of the rare books I didn't finish.

Mostly a good read for relatives, I think. The story line, when there is one, jumps around a lot, so it is hard to remember who's who. Later in the book, the stories get more continuous and easier to follow.
