Thousands of readers told us they wanted Uncle John in their cars. Of course, he couldn't visit each of them personally, so here's the next best thing: an audio version, jammed with interesting, helpful, and humorous trivia and information from the Uncle John backlist.

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.

I loved into thin air, in fact it is still one of my all time favorites. This is not the worst book I have heard, but it's close.
