To the Rescue : The Biography of Thomas S. Monson
To the Rescue is the much-anticipated official biography of President Thomas S. Monson. Beginning with President Monson s family heritage and his early years in Salt Lake City, it includes his vocational preparation and his career in the world of journalism. More important, this inspiring book recounts his lifetime of Church service. Called as a bishop at the age of twenty-two, as a mission president at thirty-one, and as a member of the Quorum of the Twelve at age thirty-six, he has traveled the globe to minister to the Saints for more than fifty years. This book shares many of his personal experiences, from his visits behind the Iron Curtain to his contributions on the Scriptures Publication Committee and in the missionary and welfare areas; it also provides up-to-the-minute information about his work as Church President. Filled with wonderful photographs and little-known accounts, this biography is a portrait of a leader who ministers both to the one and to the many, and who is completely dedicated to doing whatever the Lord prompts him to do.

1 . Good read
Posted June 06, 2012 by SonyReader , CanadaIt's all there on the Sony Reader version.
Very interesting read. I understand now why they call President Monson the President of the LDS Church as well as a prophet. There is an incredible amount of business affairs that need to be conducted as the leader of a large international church (14 million members (?)).
Plenty of research went into the writing of this book. It's good to know that prophets can come from not so perfect backgrounds. Because of the info I read in this book, I will be interested in reading biographies of other prophets, too.
