Book of Mormon Computer Marking Project
I gathered evidence supporting claims of Joseph Smith, the witnesses, and LDS scholars regarding The Book of Mormon – and then color coded the entire book in 12 topical categories, with commentary. The following can be downloaded free of charge:Introduction to The Book of Mormon, collection of compelling evidence of the book’s authenticity, and powerful testimonies of the Book of Mormon , including my own resulting from this project.

THE NETWORK MARKETING GAME: Gospel Perspectives on Multi-level Marketing
Another web site – mlm-thetruth.com – reports on my 20 years research on MLM (multi-level marketing), which is explained in several articles and in three eBooks, including a thorough analysis of the MLM industry titled Multi-level Marketing Unmasked. The book should answer all your questions about MLM, while exposing flaws in the business model and unfair and deceptive industry practices. Descriptive indexes and frequent summaries make it easy to find what you want. Download free of charge by clicking here: Multi-level Marketing Unmaske (476-page pdf file.).
If you are LDS and are ever recruited into an MLM, you will benefit from reading another book – THE NETWORK MARKETING GAME: Gospel Perspectives on Multi-level Marketing. Utah leads the nation in concentration of MLMs based in the state – most of them led by LDS founders. The book explores the ethics of MLM, based on principles revealed in modern scriptures and in teachings of latter-day prophets. I offer a free hard cover copy of the book to any reader who will do a small favor for me – and for many others.
