The back cover flap states Mr. Gibbons has a talent for "...careful research and objective analysis." While it is apparent that Mr. Gibbons holds Heber J. Grant in high esteem, one could question the objectivity of the analysis. Unlike his biography of Lorenzo Snow, Mr. Gibbons actually cited a couple references. I do mean a couple (Journal of Discourses and President Grant's journals). If there were others in there, I missed them. Again there are several conjectures about people's thoughts and actions unsupported by documentation. Mr. Gibbons did use quite a few quotes from Heber J. Grant's journals which is where he was most effective in relaying some of his thoughts and attitudes. There are many injections of LDS beliefs and values throughout the work. (Not necessarily a problem as long as the reader knows what to expect.) While I enjoyed learning more about Heber J. Grant's life and seeing some of his thoughts in his own words, I have a serious dislike for the title of this book. I've always associate the term "Man of Steel" with Superman. While I'm sure Mr. Gibbons intent was to convey the strength of determination and iron resolve of Heber J. Grant, his use of a comic book cliche was ineffective. It detracts from Mr. Gibbons honest belief that Heber J. Grant was a prophet of God. As far as a biography goes, the book is poorly documented and definitely has a bias in favor of the LDS church. It will convey to the reader some of the events of Heber J. Grant's life and some of his thoughts and feelings.
