The author did extensive research for this book and at times it is hard to slog through the background information, however, without that background, there could not be a true and complete understanding of the FLDS. The leadership of the FLDS has isolated their followers since the early 1950's. Over the years the leaders, especially Warren Jeffs have become more and more paranoid and more demanding of complete obedience by his followers to rules that he did not abide by himself.
Several law suits have been files against the FLDS and Warren Jeffs in particular and it amazing to read about all the tricks and stalling tactics that they use.
