In a Nutshell: Starting in July 2005, Bushman kept a journal of the publication of his book on Joseph Smith, as well as his subsequent national book tour. Thoroughly candid, Bushman reveals his fears and frustrations and beats himself up when he thinks he performed badly at the pulpit or during a question-and-answer session. He complains about the difficulty of a "believing Mormon" being convincing to academic historians. He exults in the generosity of his Mormon audiences but still worries that he will disappoint. Well-written and interesting throughout, it deserves wider distribution through commercial publication.
