I wouldn't dream of spoiling the surprises for anyone who has not read this yet, other than to say that no-one who is a student of American history can afford not to read this book. The depth of research and the unvarnished, warts-and-all approach Mr. Herman takes to his subject matter make it a must read.
Entertaining idea aside, I'm afraid that this book falls into what I call the "Every Great Man..." category. I'm sure you know what I mean! We have all come across books whose authors "identify" with a certain group, and who put forth the theory that unbeknownst to the rest of us, "Every Great Man" in history belongs to that group, or was, at least, put on the road to greatness through mentors from that group!
Despite this rather narrow focus, though, the book presents an interesting viewpoint and helps make fairly "dry" areas of history more colorful and accessible!
