The follwing section contains books that provide historical information and critical analysis of Joseph Smith, the LDS Church, and Mormon culture - all of which are paramount to understanding Mitt Romney, his faith and methods. Many of these books are not "approved literature" by the LDS Church, i.e. Mormons are highly discouraged from reading these titles. Any material that contradicts the position of the LDS Church or offers a different historical account is considered "anti-Mormon" literature, even when demonstrably correct.


This section contains the official LDS Standard Works: The Book of Mormon, Doctrine & Covenants (D&C), and Pearl of Great Price.  The Mormon canon (scripture) is referred to as the Quad, because Mormons typically have all four compiled in one volume.  The fourth is the Bible (KJV), which Mormons also believe to be the word of God "as far as it is translated correctly."  They do not believe the Bible to be accurate or complete; Joseph Smith was in the process of “correcting” it when he was killed. The Book of Mormon is the most well known and emphasized text by the LDS Church; however, most doctrines and practices unique to Mormons are contained in the Pearl of Great Price and the D&C, including plural marriage (polygamy), plurality of gods, eternal progression, location of the garden of Eden, and the existence of a living prophet.  Other than the concept of a prophet, none of these doctrines has any basis in the Book of Mormon.

The following section contains several pro-Mitt Romney books specific to his presidential bid and his work with the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City. One title is actually authored by Mitt Romney.
