    This is the enormously entertaining story of how a fraudulent surgeon made a fortune by inserting goats' testes into impotent American men. "Doctor" John Brinkley became a world renowned authority on sexual rejuvenation in the 1920s, with famous politicians and even royalty asking for his services.

    "incredible story"
    Overall

    The story is amazing, the narration not so much. The author has done such a good job that it's worth overlooking the mispronounced words and ridiculous character voices.

    The Shooting Salvationist chronicles what may be the most famous story you have never heard. In the 1920's, the Reverend J. Frank Norris railed against vice and conspiracies he saw everywhere to a congregation of more than 10,000 at First Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas, the largest congregation in America, the first "megachurch".

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator insists on channeling Foghorn Leghorn when reading quotes from the subject, who is a Southern preacher. He also mispronounces various words including, "Bowie". It's "Bowie" like the knife, not David.


    Any additional comments?

    Despite the narration, this book would be of interest to anyone who wants to know more about the beginnings of the Fundamentalist movement, the history of Fort Worth and parts of North Texas or anyone who enjoys a good story.
