I'll post a bit as a teaser, and then you can go and read the whole thing:
Hanson’s book truly shines by being a "Mormon story" that is not crafted to show how one develops that perfect faithful idealism that Mormons call a testimony but how one who is striving to understand and develop such ideals gets caught up in one of a myriad of paths that Mormons refer to as "the ways of the world." This makes this book all the more enjoyable and the characters all the more relative. They aren’t perfect Mormons. In fact, one can come incredibly close to understanding an ex-mormon’s psyche by reading this book.
And, in other book review news:
