    What did you love best about Where Good Ideas Come From?

    The ideas that good ideas come from a crises, confusion, failure, an d from the use of one idea being used in an entirely different way in another area. How one sphere of activity can change another in very radical ways. Like wine making in Germany gives birth to the movable type printing press.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer. In over 10 years on the force, she's seen it all - and knows that her survival depends on her instincts. And she's going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire - and suspect in Eve's murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it's up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about - except the addictive hunger of needing his touch.

  • Under the Banner of Heaven: A Story of Violent Faith

    Story
    (600)

    At the core of this book is an appalling double murder committed by two Mormon fundamentalist brothers, Ron and Dan Lafferty, who insist they received a revelation from God commanding them to kill their blameless victims. Weaving the story of the Lafferty brothers and their fanatical brethren with a clear-eyed look at Mormonism's violent past, Krakauer examines the underbelly of the most successful homegrown faith in the United States, and finds a distinctly American brand of religious extremism.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Under the Banner of Heaven to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the printed edition. This audio edition was excellent


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene at The Mountain Meadows Massacre when the men of the wagon train have thrown down their guns, are being lead off and on a signal they are all shot in cold blood. All in the name of God. All the perpetrators are sworn to secrecy or they will be be murdered.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    The inherent violence, the duplicity, and the willingness to do harm to anyone who is not of the faith (Mormon). What a history! They like to bleed the beast!


    Any additional comments?

    Great book well researched, By a person who tries not to inflame but inform oursides about Mormon History.
