It has been interesting to see customers' reactions to this book. The title captures their attention as this is a subject of widespread interest to most folks. We have had a customer buy the book and come back after reading it to buy copies for all his children. Everyone who has read has been very positive. Click here for a link to a scholarly review posted at the Association of Mormon Letters. Just yesterday I was on the phone with Charlene who used to live locally but now lives in Mississippi. She was calling to order another copy of Postmortal. She had seen our email about the book and ordered it online. She could not put it down when she started reading and was so impressed she has been telling her friends about it. She lent her copy to a friend who after reading it wanted her own copy, so Charlene gave her that copy as a gift and was calling to order another one as she wanted to keep one as a reference. She gave me her permission to share her comments as a customer review.
Charlene found the book well-written, self-explanatory and easy to understand. She commented that "You don't have to be a scholar to understand it." She liked the question and answer format and found many of the diagrams to be extremely informative and helpful. She had no idea there was so much information from the scriptures and general authorities about this topic and found it fascinating and inspirational. She has been a member of our church for over 30 years and had never heard about many of topics mentioned and explained in this book. I think if there had been more time to chat she could have kept going giving me additional examples of exciting insights she had gained.
