Great review of American history and a bit more

I really liked this book. I have been studying a lot of American History lately and this book will dig down a bit further. I previously read Rise to Globalism (Stephen Ambrose and Douglas Brinkley) and therefore had high expectations. This book did not disappoint.

I recommend this book to anybody who endeavors to take a first shot a learning American history or who has studied American History before who wants to get a bit more value.

This book is well worth it!

A very well written and recorded book.

This book is well worth listening to, and keeps the story of America interesting and engaging, with many observations which help a person more fully understand the reasons behind our momentous history, as well as giving us a more compassionate view of the mistakes made by our very human leaders.

Basic information somewhat of a let down.

Expected more from this great historian but informative none the less. Author's reading hard to stay engrossed in.
