The Story of Mormonism
A few years before James E. Talmage was called to serve as an apostle for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (also known as the "Mormon" church), he gave a series of lectures at universities such as the University of Michigan and Cornell, describing the history of the Church. These lectures were later compiled and published as 'The Story of "Mormonism."' It is a concise, yet informative summary for all interested in learning the history and beliefs of the "Mormon" church.

The book is fine but the reader mispronounces an unacceptable number of words. I also want to point out that in the last chapter, there is a baby crying in the background.

The recording is decently done. My review here is mainly in conjunction with the book itself in that it is a good book that describes many truths about the treatment the early pioneers of the LDS Church endured. It is a shame that in our American history books we find many stories of the poor and savage treatment shown to the American Indians, blacks and others on our own soil, but the brutal murdering, raping and pillaging of innocent men, women and children done to a group of American people known only as Mormons has either been deleted from our history books or was never intended to be added in the first place. This book tells the story first of the ancient origins of the LDS Church and book of Mormon, then of the people who lived and followed the religion during the early days of its restoration and the struggles they had placed on them by corrupt people and governments who worked in attempt to destroy the Mormon people / religion from off the face of the earth; And finally the ultimate success of the church despite all of this. I highly recommend this very short book to anyone interested in hearing, at least, a small portion of the many trials endured by the early pioneers of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I would also like to mention that this book was written by James E. Talmage, who was and is considered to be one of the foremost authorities on LDS history and the doctrines of its religion which lends a strong credibility to the truthfulness of the record of history contained herein.
