If I could send this book back to me when I was in Junior and Senior High School, the classes in history, geography, civics, political theory, and even English language would have become interesting. Real people, sometimes with photos, have been picked to remind us that they were also a part of the history of our country. Mr. Rubino has taken the dried beef jerky we were fed in school and replaced it with a filet mignon, great side dishes, and added several courses to turn that beef jerky into a banquet. He is a chef of history, politics, and humor.
This is a great book to leave out for your guests and a great conversation starter. Very fun and very interesting.
I like the fact that the book is a compilation of rather short entries that give a specific, and pretty thoroughly researched, snippets. You can pick the book up for just a few minutes, or you can sit and let yourself be absorbed into the many interesting details and trivia about people and events. I think you may have a hard time putting it down once you start reading. I know I did.
Also the book states that Obama wrote 'Dreams of my Fathers', when the actual title is 'Dreams from my Father'. Also Harry S Truman is continuously mis-written as Harry S. Truman. Truman had no middle name, only an 'S' so therefore a period after the S in unnecessary.
