Pioneer Prophet

If you will excuse the shameless self-promotion, I was recently pleased to learn that my forthcoming biography of Brigham Young is available for advance purchase. In fact, it was rather surreal to have it appear while I was poring over page proofs. Just in case it sells out quickly, reserve your copy of Pioneer Prophet now! I am joking, of course.

If anyone is interested in a preview, Harvard has put together a podcast about the book, available here.

If you assign it for a class (sorry it's not shorter -- Brigham Young had quite a life), I'm very happy to do a conversation with your students, grade their papers, clean your office, etc.

I pre-ordered your book earlier this week. I'm excited to see it in print. Well done and congrats.

I've downloaded the podcast and look forward to listening to it later today.

John: Psyched to see it. And, my office really is a mess, so . . .

Paul, I didn't mention that office cleaning requires the office owner to provide travel expenses.

John, forgot to add, I'm shocked -- SHOCKED -- to see this blatant act of self-promotion of one's book on this blog. As you know, that is a clear violation of blog policy and carries a fine of 1 case of 2009 Bourdeaux (ironic, given the topic, ne c'est pas?), sent direct to P. Harvey, COS, CO & etc.

The book comes highly recommended and looks great -- Added to my list.

Paul, perhaps not as ironic as you might think:

Good one, Chris! In honor of those pioneers, I may have to crack one of my 2005s this evening.
