1. He stated that a Viking ship has been found on the Mississippi river. The main 'source' I was able to find for this (I looked, because it sounded like a cool find) was the World News Daily tabloid. Snopes proved it as false.
2. He said the President is the only person who can order a nuclear strike. Even assuming that the author meant in the US instead of, say, Russia, he is wrong. Various members of the military have the authority to launch as well, in the event of a 'decapitation strike' on the capital.
I discovered other various and significant factual flaws, enough that the author holds no credibility with me. The book is a shallow skim of various historical things, seemingly gleamed (at best) from wikipedia. There is a reason that site is not an accredited one for serious research. This could have been a really good book, too bad the author couldn't pull it off.

Honestly, I am happy to see the boy excited about reading again. Thank you Mr. Pisenti for doing that.

I noticed a handful of spelling mistakes (mostly "and" instead of "an").
Some heavy political bias in parts.
Not awful, I finished it, but I wouldn't recommend.
