"Lebanon” Levi Stoltzfus, star of the #1 top-rated Discovery Channel reality showAmish Mafia, delivers a sizzling tell-all about Amish life today. From the forbidden joyrides to the senseless shunnings to the colorful family feuds, he shares his frank insider’s view of this fascinating and secretive society.

You’ve seen the pretty postcards and the shiny tourist brochures. Now, Amish Confidentialtakes readers beyond the buggies, bonnets, and beards—into the hidden heart of back-roads Amish country. The all-night field parties. The prohibited automobiles. The nosy neighbors and prissy tattletales. It’s all here: the many “English temptations.” The stitch-and-bitch quilting bees. The sex, alcohol, and illicit Wi-Fi. And the random acts of kindness and remarkable forgiveness, too.

Interest in the Amish has never been greater. The tourist counts keep breaking new records.Amish Mafia is back for a fourth blockbuster season on TV, joined now by several spinoff shows.Amish Confidential taps right into America’s fresh fascination with the throwback Amish. Stoltzfus weaves his never-before-told personal story through some high-profile Amish episodes that rocked the news in recent years, including the Nickel Mines shooting massacre, the Amish sisters’ farm-stand kidnapping, and the Amish-Pagan drug gang. As America’s most famous Amish tough guy makes clear on every page, there is nothing plain or simple about the plain-and-simple life.

          I watched every season of Amish Mafia, Breaking Amish and Return to Amish... When Levi said he was going to write a book that would blow the lid off everything... that he was going to name names..I was excited.. then I read the book. The only names he named were ones that were all ready public record, the school shootings the beard cutting, etc. There was no revilations no oh wow's nothing even said about the mother of his child or what what he is doing now that he has been shunned.
          All hype and nothing more...

              Wanted to read more about Levi, what he's doing now, what about Amish Aid? Who's taking over and is it affecting his businesses. Can't wait for the next book. Go Levi!

              Very misleading, If you have watched the show you have read the book already. There is nothing in that you have not already have seen..I was highly disappointed in this.
