The book is arranged in as an alphabetical topical guide with references to similar/identical topics under different names. It's pretty easy to find a response to a claim even if you've never read the book before. Several sources are cited, some more often than others. Perhaps if you want comprehensive details, you'd be better to read the books this author used to compose the book (e.g. "1000 Evidences" and "One Minute Answers"). Noticeably missing is a response to the DNA question, but that may be perhaps because it wasn't such a hot topic until the early 2000s when Simon Southerton came out with his book "Losing a Lost Tribe: Native Americans, DNA, and the Mormon Church."
This book is no longer sold at Deseret Book and Seagull Book, so it's hard to come by these days. I'd say for $10 + S&H it's worth the price. I wouldn't pay anything higher than $15 for it.
This book was a huge disappointment.
The arguments are, at times, passionate; but they're rarely convincing, and the amount of mistakes littered throughout this book really lessens its value.
To cite just two quick examples: On page 2, it says that Joseph Fielding Smith said, "We warn you against the dissemination of doctrines which are not according to the scripture...", and lists Church News, Oct. 9, 1976 as the reference. This quote actually comes from Spencer W. Kimball (Joseph Fielding Smith died in 1972).
Another error (which is not merely in the research) is found on page 28, and reads: "We claim that our scriptures came by revelation, and all, as used by Timothy, does not preclude more scripture, especially in light of the fact that scriptures were written both before and after Timothy wrote his scripture." The problem here is that Timothy didn't write any scripture! Timothy himself didn't write either 1st Timothy or 2nd Timothy; they are letters from the Apostle Paul TO Timothy, and they both say this clearly on their titles pages.
The author's ignorance of the New Testament is painfully obvious throughout this book, and really hurts his arguments. Save your time and money and avoid this amateurish work.
