    Everything, well, almost everything, you know about American history is wrong because most textbooks and popular history books are written by left-wing academic historians who treat their biases as fact. But fear not; Professor Thomas Woods refutes the popular myths in The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History.

    Gary says: "Informative, thoughtful, eye opening and funny."

    Overall

    This books goal must have been to create shock and awe. I enjoy reading point/counterpoint pieces, but I wish someone would have mentioned to me that this book is so over the top that even a conservative like me was a little ashamed.

    When listening to a book it can be difficult to keep the author honest. Especially when it comes to sources and dates, but this book made me feel cheap and dirty. For example, (and not a specific reference) a point might be made about a topic in the 1930's, and then seamlessly the narrator reads a substantiating reference piece from the 1910 or some time in the early 1900's, but not within 10 years of 1930. This point may not seem clear to readers of the book, but I would guess most listeners were annoyed by this, and in the future listeners of the book should be brought up to speed verbally if there is some hook I missed.

    In closing, do not buy this book. I feel you will walk away with a little more knowledge, but that can be accomplished by reading a highlight piece on the civil war, and a little bit about the Lusitania. Not worth the money or the time.
