Publisher's Summary

"Lebanon" Levi Stoltzfus, star of the hit Discovery Channel reality show Amish Mafia, delivers a sizzling tell-all about Amish life today. From the forbidden joyrides to the senseless shunnings to the colorful family feuds, he shares his frank insider's view of this fascinating and secretive society.
You've seen the pretty postcards and the shiny tourist brochures. Now, Amish Confidential takes listeners beyond the buggies, bonnets, and beards - into the hidden heart of back-roads Amish country. The all-night field parties. The prohibited automobiles. The nosy neighbors and prissy tattletales. It's all here: the many "English temptations". The stitch-and-bitch quilting bees. The sex, alcohol, and illicit Wi-Fi. And the random acts of kindness and remarkable forgiveness, too.
Interest in the Amish has never been greater. The tourist counts keep breaking new records. Amish Mafia is back for a fourth blockbuster season on TV, joined now by several spinoff shows. Amish Confidential taps right into America's fresh fascination with the throwback Amish. Stoltzfus weaves his never-before-told personal story through some high-profile Amish episodes that rocked the news in recent years, including the Nickel Mines shooting massacre, the Amish sisters' farm-stand kidnapping, and the Amish-Pagan drug gang. As America's most famous Amish tough guy makes clear in every minute, there is nothing plain or simple about the plain-and-simple life.

Not that impressed

It's basically a narration of the show. Not that much new information or blockbuster scandals or taboo revealed.
My opinion.

Respectful

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, if they were touring Amish country.

What did you like best about this story?

Very good, informative history. The author tells how Amish people interface with the 21st Century. Keeping culture and tradition relevant to a generation facing unprecedented challenges against the importance of tradition is a relatable problem to many of us.

Any additional comments?

After listening to over half the book, we you-tubed past episodes of Amish Mafia, which I had not heard of before this. I had to double check to confirm it was the same author! The show was nothing like the thoughtful, informative book and, sorry to say, pretty trashy.
