"If you only read one book on the Amish, read this one. With engaging prose, Nolt answers our questions and explains how this horse-and-buggy community thrives in our hypermodern world. This is the gold-medal overview of America’s largest plain community. A great antidote to the fictitious fluff of 'reality' TV shows."

"I am not aware of any other books that are as accessible, informed by scholarship, brief, and engaging as this one. A significant and nuanced contribution."

"There is much to learn (and unlearn) about Amish life; this book is the best place to start."

"The Amish: A Concise Introduction is a highly useful book that presents the culture in a concise, easy to understand and package."
