I never used to be interested in history. Now that I am older I find myself more interested in it. Sometimes the material was a bit dry but hey, it's history. The assignments are a little involved and require a lot of though, especially the counter point assignments. Some of the links for the assignments did not work so it was really hard (or impossible) to do the assignments because they required a comparison of material from the different links. The defective links, however, did not affect the ability to read the content of the book.

I needed this book for my US History 101 class, needless to say the book came in near excellent condition and decently priced. Would buy from the seller again.
The only thing which I don't quite like is the "magazine" layout of the book, but there is nothing I can do about that.

At first I didn't realize it was coming out of the cover, but I just made it into a binder edition for easy access. Thanks a lot for the quick shipping! I got it just in time for school to start.
