The kindle version will not open on any windows device. As for about the textbook itself I don't have an opinion on it (as I can't even open it).

Used this text book for my US History class. Overall the text book is pretty good. However, some content is put together strangely in some of the chapters and the book does not always present the most in depth and well rounded point of view on some historical topics.
