I found some of the content interesting, but found Warren's drawn out personal accounts boring, and a little self-satisfied in tone. Though supported by research, none of the ideas sparked my desire to learn more, and his formulaic use of simile as an attempt at vivid description made me weary. Warren seemed to enjoy his book, but I didn't so much.
Thank you, Sarah Vowell, for being the history teacher I never had. Vowell offers witty, engaging and critical accounts of American history as she reveals her quirky yet endearing affection for our founding fathers and texts. Funny, informative and provocative, I like a women who loves our country while at the same time recognizes its faults, and of course, someone who deeply respects Lincoln, but can admit that J. Wilkes Booth was kind of hot. Post-modern history is here!
