      There's a lot of crazy stuff in this book!

    • Hal says:

      I one-clicked this book for two reasons -- it was free and 90 pct. of my reading is history or historical fiction. After reading it I have only two good things about this wretched book.1. It is free (but my time isn't).2. It was short (but I still had to struggle to get through it.To me it's amazing that the writer obtained a degree from the University of Iowa. His lack of grammar skills and punctuation ability is absolutely atrocious to the point that sometimes the book is almost impossible to [...]

      All-too-quick historical trivia in a Kindle edition absent the book's images, needed editing and littered with random hyperlinks made this an underwhelming read. The author is abviously a history fanatic with a lot of knowledge to share, but the delivery was lacking.Did you know the Wright Brothers weren't actually the first to make a powered flight? That they weren't even second? (Of course, being the first to have a photographer on hand is what made the difference.) That was one of the best of [...]

      The content was interesting although citations would have been helpful (I am not sure if the Kindle edition somehow left out citations like the pictures, so this may be a non-issue). The bigger problem for me was the poor grammar and lack of flow even within each section. I am not a grammar nazi, but when poor sentence structures are present it makes it difficult to read and detracts from the content.

      Why can't liberal academic demagogues shake it?I think they call it "false consensus effect", through amongst academics that description may faulted, given their overall delusional leanings. Cleverly written, if you can stomach the slant, however. One passage claimed Hillary to be the only "viable" female presidential candidate in history. Nauseating, but humorous, given the source.

    • Tracey says:

      Honestly, I don't remember if I finished this. There was, I believe, some interesting stuff in there But not as much or as interesting as the author seemed to think, and with dubious authenticity. A pretty good idea, poorly executed. And poorly written and edited, unless phrases like "working a crowd into a rebellious furry" are meant to be giggle-inducing.

    • Rich Meyer says:

      While this book had a lot of interesting background information, it was far too US President-oriented to justify the title. A good two-thirds of the book was devoted to essays on Presidents for some reason. Fairly well-written, though.

    • Sherry says:

      Short but entertainingThis is a really great to educate yourself on what really was behind the headlines. I recommend and will be doing a search to see what else this author has to read.

    • Kim says:

      I finally stopped reading this at about a third of the way through. The writing style is poor enough that I couldn't stand to finish it, although I'm a big history fan. I'm happy that this was offered as a free download. If I would have paid for it, I would have cried.

    • Jessica says:

      Not bad for a quick, free read. Desperately in need of an editor. If you're into quirky historical facts and can overlook some serious grammar problems, this is fun. I kept wishing each chapter was long -- it felt like a stub article for each one.

    • Sandra Molnar says:

      Because nobody seems to know what is the truth.This is an interesting book and I like the way the author calls out on their mistakes but I believe there are things missing and mistakes in this book as well.

    • Zep says:

      very light, poorly organized, quite random and politically slanted. if you like all those then go for it.

    • Emily says:

      Fun, quick read of little known vignettes of American history.

    • George Gutowski says:

      Good quick read that probably conveys more in a few short pages than most history books do in a few hundred.

    • Karen Gillam says:

      ughhh. I couldn't even make myself finish this book.

    • Tom says:

      This did not meet my expectations. I have seen much of this stuff in other writings.

    • MsAprilVincent says:

      My guess is that this book started as a blog. While entertaining, it seems steeped in speculation rather than proven fact. Sources aren't cited. Needs editing.

    • Thomas Adams says:

      An interesting set of facts on historical figures that they never taught you in school. A fun and interesting read.

    • Shanna says:

      I was hoping for, I don't know, more.

    • Judy says:

      Interesting but would have loved to see the photos which did not show up on my kindle.

    • Andrea says:

      fun read!

    • Mike says:
