Good food for thought
I really enjoyed listening to this book. It was more like a series of energetic presentations which were really insightful and gave me a lot to think about. I'm grateful to the author for putting this together and all the time and effort he put into it.

This book gets better every time I listen to it.
Would you consider the audio edition of Mr. Mormon to be better than the print version?
I have listened to the whole book one time --- and several chapters I have listened to three and four times. The first time I was speed listening, and missed a bunch of details. I study a lot of LDS books, but this book has subjects that very few LDS writers ever discuss.
There is a half of a chapter on the “new name and secret names of angels” all referenced from the Bible. Quoting where Jesus himself also received a “new name”. I have read the Bible many times and missed this and I have never read any LDS author discuss this subject to this type of depth using only the Bible.
The chapter on the planets and the solar system compares the formation of Eve coming from Adam’s rib, which the author states is a piece of Adam… to the formation of our Moon coming from a piece of the Earth. When the Earth was hit by a very large asteroid billions of years ago and a piece of the Earth broke off and formed the Moon. This is a really unique concept that the author uses and backs it up with science.
Another very detailed, and very interesting comparison is the analogy of Neutrons, Protons and Electrons compared to God, Jesus and the HG….and how those three things made everything in the universe. I had to listen to this several times to finally get all the hidden meanings.
I never knew that Joseph Smith taught that an “eternity” was 2.555 billion years long. A set period of time. This was extremely interesting. I loved discovering this fact in this book.
I have read the Bible cover to cover many times. But this Mr. Mormon book finds Bible scripture after Bible scripture that I never knew was even in the Bible, or I must have read over them many times in the past but never related their significance to the LDS gospel.
But this is the kicker and why I recommend this book!!! --- I have studied for years and years about the Garden of Eden and what went on there, as it is very confusing. However, this book has an entire chapter ----- and is the VERY BEST ANSWER THAT I HAVE EVER READ on this subject. It is the most thorough --- scripture based --- and most logical answer I have ever heard. If you purchase the book just to listen to that one chapter alone, it will be worth it.
Any additional comments?
The only negative thing I can say about this book is that it is probably the first book that this author has written, as I cannot find anything else on Google. And in some places the author repeats himself and therefore you can tell it is a first time author, but other than that…. I will definitely buy the next book if he ever decides to write another. I absolutely loved this book.
