    A fun and quick glimpse into the personal lives of the prophets Sometimes we forget they are actually real human beings Who would ve thought that a prophet would ever go on a diet or take a nap on his desk or on the floor of the office I wish it had details on their lives, but it was just a quick peek My favorite thing about each prophet is that, even though their schedules are so packed, and they have stewardship over the whole earth, they truly care about the one, and will drop everything to [...]

    I wanted to like this book better than I did Most of the stories are great, and I m sure I wouldn t have learned them anywhere else However, the strange organization in each chapter and seemingly random placement of quotes bothered me Finally, I regret to say that the stories in this book really make D Arthur Hancock sound a little toadyish and fawning toward the church leaders, and it reminded me just a little of Uriah Heep from David Copperfield.

    Working with D Arthur Haycock, who for than half of the twentieth century associated closely with seven presidents of the LDS Church, historian Dr Heidi S Swinton brings Heber J Grant, George Albet Smith, David O McKay, Joseph Fielding Smith, Harold B Lee, Spencer WS Kimball and Ezra Taft Benson to life.

    A short and sweet book about Arthur Haycock s personal experiences as the secretary to several prophets Great little personal vignettes, but Swinton s writing style is not my favorite I guess I prefer Sherri Dew, when it comes to prophets biographies Plus, I found a few errors two punctuation and one grammatical.

    I thought this book was alright There are better church books out there, but I don t regret reading this I liked how it showed that the prophets are people just like us and that even they aren t perfect I also liked how each prophet mentioned had their own unique personality that was essential in continuing God s work on the earth.

    Ok, so I am biased because this is my grandpa s book, but I really do love it and have met numerous other people who have loved it also For most people this will be a book of Church history for me it is also family history If I had 100 stars to give it, I would do it.
