    Award-winning author John Ferling is a leading authority on the American Revolution. His entertaining and enlightening histories have greatly improved our understanding of early America and the Founding Fathers. Now Ferling opens a window to the past and explores the contentious presidential election of 1800.

    D. Littman says: "Outstanding work of interpretive history"
    "pretty good"
    Overall

    This book is rather Pro-Jefferson but not real bad. At some points it is a little shaky on historical ground. If you are only going to read one book on this period this should not be that book but if you are going to read several make this one about the 5th or 6th.

    Apart from The Last of the Mohicans, most Americans know little of the French and Indian War, also known as the Seven Years' War, and yet it remains one of the most fascinating periods in our history. In January 2006, PBS will air The War That Made America, a four-part documentary about this epic conflict. Fred Anderson, the award-winning and critically acclaimed historian, has written the official tie-in to this exciting television event.

    Michael says: "A thorough and absorbing history"
    "Good book not a great book"
    Overall

    The book suffered a bit with revisionist history and some PC but not bad. It did a good job of reflecting the normal miscalculations on all sides that lead to most Wars. Alot of effort was made to make Washington look less Christian than his own writings did. But a good review of a war not much covered.

  • The Question of God: CS Lewis & Sigmund Freud Debate God, Love, Sex, and the Meaning of Life

    Renowned psychiatrist and educator Armand Nicholi presents a fascinating comparison of the beliefs of Sigmund Freud and C.S. Lewis. For all the variety of specific religious beliefs, there are fundamentally only two kinds of people: believers and nonbelievers.

    Mindy says: "A perfect argument"
    "Very Good"
    Overall

    I would highly recommend this book for both believers and unbelievers. The author handles homestly and fairly some of the well known contradictions in Freuds beliefs and nature. The discription of both mens' journey to atheisim is very similar (even a little scarily so) to my own journey. Some the reasoning of Lewis' journey to belief are also similar to my own. This may be part of the reason why the book struck such a nerve with me.
