Format: Paperback
I really enjoy this book! I had to buy it for my American history class which is online. The format of the class is where you wouldn't have to really read the book to pass but we needed the book to cite facts. I bought the book so I might as well read it. We just finished Chapter four and I really love the structure of the book. Most chapters are lonely 20 pages long and the book is filled with interesting pictures and diagrams. All of this makes it a great textbook! The only thing I don't like is some of the subheadings are like in the side of the paragraph so it's not real clear what your reading about but I see why they chose to do that based on design purposes.

I purchased this book for my History of the US to 1865 class for the fall 2014 semester. This is a good textbook, too bad I didn't get any money back for it during the end of the semester.

I used this for a college history class. It wasn't much different from other textbooks. Not incredibly interesting, but the information that you need to know to pass the class.

The textbook arrived much earlier than anticipated, which I was very pleased by! The textbook was described as being in good condition, and it was better than I expected, just a few bent edges. I am very pleased with the entire transaction!
