Nicely written with just the right amount of depth across a variety of CCSSs... Goldwag doesn't "go deep" but does provide pop-culture worthy details on many of the topics he covers, for example I now know where the phrase "drinking the kool-aid" comes from.
Sanders maintains a pleasant tone and cadence but the presentation is marred by the jarring inclusion of birth and death dates for every.single.person.mentioned!
The bottom line:
A good casual read.
I guess I shouldn't have expected much from Kessler based on his other tomes but this book was really a disappointment. Reads like the diary of a petulant child, full of complaints, juvenile prose and commentary from "a current agent". Funny at times, annoying most. Give it a pass....
