Two more things about <i>Unmask Alice</i>:

1. A granddaughter of someone quoted in the book says Emerson was "claiming he went to BYU, Harvard, and Columbia. Well, the first two are correct, but later in life he got an additional degree from a degree mill called Columbia Pacific University — vastly different than THE Columbia." Amusingly, Emerson made fun of that—I think <i>he</i> called it a diploma mill—not many pages away from this error

2. He called Orem a postage stamp of a city near Provo, which, I mean, it was over 25,000 people by 1970 when Provo was over 50,000. I don't feel the description holds.
