Great book.

Wonderful Book on Joseph Smith
By , Submitted on 2016-07-12

This is the first book I've read all the way through on Joseph Smith. It's a book you would want to read multiple times. In Dr. Madsen's lectures he presents a very interesting side of Joseph that we don't often talk about. I loved his stories about Joseph's humor, his amazing intelligence and love for his brethren. After reading this you won't look at Joseph Smith the same again. Good read.
