I've just finished reading "One Flew Over the Onion Dome- American Orthodox Converts, Retreads & Reverts" by Fr. Joseph David Huneycutt.

I found it hilarious, but that's not the only reason why I am recommending it. I found it an insightful book which would be of benefit not only to clergy but both "converts" and "cradles" as a first step toward understanding each other. The book also points out some of the pitfalls both "converts" and "cradles" fall into, and how to manage them.

Can I ask what the biggest pitfall is to potential converts in the book?
Just curious...

The book deals with the issues of actual (not potential) converts.

Is the book worth $15? It's only 126 pages.

Are there any more substantial reviews besides the blurbs from the endorsers?

I usually raise the same concern over Orthodox books in general...but was reminded by someone that most non-mass produced books would cost that much.

I'm not against buying books sight unseen (though I usually try to glance at them at a bookstore if possible), but I would prefer to read adequate reviews before a blind buy. Since it's not at Amazon.com, I can't even read Readers' Reviews.
