"Muckwhip" Review from Veronica Machen

Ok, so I have been a fan of Chris Heimerdinger forever. I think I have read everyone of his books and most of the Tennis Shoe books at least twice. When Chris came out with his newest book I couldn't wait to read it. It's called "Muckwhip's Guide to Capturing the Latter-day Soul." I read it on the kindle and reality was, it was hard to put down.

The premise is a "devil" giving advice to his underling on how to trip up and to lead his LDS target astray. The book is a good read and honestly made me think about how much the adversary wants us to fall and the subtle things he does to help lead us off the path. I found myself visualizing the things that have tripped me up or made me stumble and resolved to do better. I also found myself visualizing "hosts of angels" surrounding me every time I say my prayers.

This was a fabulous book, one that can make you think. If you like Chris's work, you won't be disappointed.

Launi Ritter's Review/Analysis of "Muckwhip's Guide"

What a clever premise! I seriously COULD NOT put this book down! Now and then, you'll come across a book with a super clever premise, but as you read it, the cleverness quickly peters out, it gets stale and predictable, and then it just ends when, frankly, even the author gets too bored to write anymore. **NOT THIS BOOK!!!**
"Muckwhip's Guide" is super clever and it stays real, fresh, and unpredictable to the very end, with a myriad of unexpected twists and turns along the way. I found I could totally relate to the experiences this poor "target" goes through, in all stages of my life so far. I also recognized the same crafty and cunning traps the adversary sets at every turning point in life, especially just when any important decision approaches.
As a missionary serving in northern California, I had to be always diligent to prepare my investigators and reactivated members about Muckwhip-like tricks and traps every time we would commit someone to come to church, get their life in order with gospel teachings, be baptized, pay tithing, and any other big step along the way. Many times we succeeded, but--just like the circumstances in this book--sometimes we did not.
Every RM knows that there's nothing like committing someone to baptism to watch the adversary pull out all the stops to keep it from happening! In the short week or so between commitment and baptism, the unthinkable ALWAYS happens - relatives and neighbors pop up with anti-Mormon materials, the investigator falls and breaks his leg, he suddenly gets called into work for 3 days straight (over his baptism date, of course), and old now-repented-of sins and temptations crop up and push their tender testimonies to the breaking point.
The adversary is sly and tricky, and Muckwhip's destructive advice to his evil underlings really does provide us with a sneak preview into just how jealous, dastardly, and cunning the evil one can be. There are always simple ways to sidestep the traps he sets, though, and we've got far more powerful forces on our side, rooting for us and guiding us along. Poor Muckwhip is in for a big surprise if he thinks all his old tricks will work on everyone!
When I was only halfway through with reading the book, I already loved it enough that I bought several extra copies that I plan to give away as Christmas gifts to my seminary students and family members. Since then, I've finished reading it cover to cover, and I'm happy to report that I LOVED it and will read it again and again. It's honest, down-to-earth, easy reading and it entertains and delights to the very last page. You may even find your vocabulary getting stretched, by accident!
Muckwhip's Guide to Capturing the Latter-day Soul makes the ideal non-stocking-non-stuffer for everyone on your list - teens, prospective missionaries, returned missionaries, youth leaders, bishops, parents, grandparents, etc. You won't be disappointed!

Review of "Muckwhip's Guide" by Laura Paulson

The following is a review/analysis of Chris's new book, "Muckwhip's Guide to Capturing the Latter-day Soul."
From Laura Paulson

"I just finished Muckwhip (on the Nook!) and loved it! I recommended it to my husband, and I doubt I'll get the Nook back 'til he finishes it (sigh). I actually found myself wanting to use it as a source for a comment in Sunday school!

"I found myself drawn into the book. It was not only interesting but insightful. There were times I was reading and had the "I've-never-thought-about-it-that-way-before" type of reaction. It's an amazing book! I LOVE hearing the point of view of the imps! It didn't feel preachy, and as such, I think I could probably entice my sons to read it when they get older!

"I would like to thank Chris for his books, and also to thank him for "Muckwhip's Guide to Capturing the Latter-day Soul." It was .. (mentally searching for a good word here) .. delightful, interesting, devilish?

Long story short, I enjoyed it.

    For those who haven't heard, I'm announcing the release of my new novel, "MUCKWHIP'S GUIDE TO CAPTURING THE LATTER-DAY SOUL: The Inside Scoop for Teens, Missionaries, and Families on Avoiding the Pits and Snares of the Enemy."
    I know. Everybody's waiting eagerly for the next "Tennis Shoes" adventure, but I started writing "Muckwhip" 13 years ago. All I did was comb its hair and wash its face and nudge it out into the world so that I didn't detract much time or attention from plowing ahead with "Book 12: Thorns of Glory." (Read my blog from last week to get more info on this).
    SPECIAL SALE!! The e-book on Kindle is normally $9.99. But until Friday, Dec. 7 (ONE WEEK!), I have PLACED THE KINDLE EBOOK on MEGASALE for $4.99. That's 50% OFF FOR THE NEXT 7 DAYS! Go to:
    The actual book comes out in paperback in Jan. 2013 (one month!). The Suggested Retail is $14.95 HOWEVER, pre-orders are $9.98. PLUS! All those who PRE-ORDER the book from www.frostcave.com will ALSO be emailed the FIRST CHAPTER of "TENNIS SHOES BOOK 12: THORNS OF GLORY"! I'm currently polishing this chapter (I guess it's technically called the Prologue), so I ask all buyers to give me couple days before I start sending this attachment to ALL PRE-ORDER CUSTOMERS of the paperback edition.
    MY READERS ARE THE BEST!!! Thus, you guys deserve a GREAT DEAL!!!
