Pot să-ți spun doar că Carrie Fisher este o prietenă sistah a tuturor dependenților nebuni, de știință-știință, care sunt acolo și asta o face o prietenă a mea. You Tube ei 9/29 apariția în emisiunea Today, hilar!
This edition of "Don't Know Much About History" takes the reader to the early years of President Clinton (©1995). Subsequent versions, I believe, bring readers to more current affairs (no pun intended). I found "Don't Know Much About History" a difficult read. While the author, Kenneth C. Davis, undoubtedly knows his subject extremely well, the book read like a semi-narrative text book. Repetitive anecdotes would surround time-lined historical events throughout the book. While it was intended to clarify and guide the reader through the series of chronological events, I found the redundancy a little distracting. With that said, after the first couple chapters - which are filled with interesting and unique details of early America - the book does become a smoother read. All in all, the book provides a more dark side of the historical events we learned in high school (and lower-level college courses). Perhaps that created some bias in my perception of the book. A lot of the focus is on the wrongs and evils of key figures and events of American history. I probably would have liked the book more if I had read some more positive (and true) stories of America and its development over the past five-plus centuries. (Not necessary the sugar-coated stories of grammar school history, but perhaps more on the good that individuals, such as Eleanor Roosevelt, have done throughout history). In a nutshell, I think history buffs and history teachers may like this book. It does provide some interesting facts and a different perspective (relative to the primary and secondary academic presentation of American history) of portraying the developments that have become the United States of America.
