    Here, celebrating the 20th anniversary of its debut as a New York Times best seller, is the revised, updated, and expanded edition of the classic anti-textbook that changed the way we look at history. First published two decades ago, when the “closing of the American mind” was in the headlines, Don’t Know Much About® History proved Americans don’t hate history—just the dull version that was dished out in school.

    I learned so much more about United States history than I read in college history books. Definitely an eye opener to some of the history taught in middle/ high school.

    "This is your country, this is your world, this is your body, and you must find some way to live within the all of it." In a profound work that pivots from the biggest questions about American history and ideals to the most intimate concerns of a father for his son, Ta-Nehisi Coates offers a powerful new framework for understanding our nation's history and current crisis. Americans have built an empire on the idea of "race", a falsehood that damages us all but falls most heavily on the bodies of black women and men.

    The book was a reminder of my life and its very informative. It doesn't sugarcoat the issues neither do the author promote any negative overtones. I enjoyed the story.

    On August 9, 1945, three days after the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, the United States dropped a second atomic bomb on Nagasaki, a small port city on Japan's southernmost island. An estimated 74,000 people died within the first five months, and another 75,000 were injured. Published on the 70th anniversary of the bombing, Nagasaki takes listeners from the morning of the bombing to the city today, telling the firsthand experiences of five survivors, all of whom were teenagers at the time of the devastation.

    Story

    This book was well written and educational. I have never read or been taught anything about possible survivors from the event. Most Americans wasn't aware that their were two bombs dropped on two different cities in Japan.

    Listen "live" to one of the most iconic orators of all times in this packed-full collection of Martin Luther King Jr. speeches. King's rich and passionate style of delivery will transport you back to the era of the civil-rights movement, when King advocated non-violent resistance in the pursuit of equality and dignity not only for blacks but for all mankind. Seldom has any leader since inspired and captivated an audience worldwide and motivated a nation to action.

    Only four men in American history have been promoted to the five-star rank of Admiral of the Fleet: William Leahy, Ernest King, Chester Nimitz, and William Halsey. These four men were the best and the brightest the navy produced, and together they led the U.S. Navy to victory in World War II, establishing the United States as the world's greatest fleet. In The Admirals, award-winning historian Walter R. Borneman tells their story in full detail for the first time.

    K. Winters says: "Fantastic Insight In To Another Side Of the War"
    "One of the best audio books I have listened to."

    Where does The Admirals rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is at the top of the list I have heard. It was nice to hear stories of naval history.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Admirals?

    The admirals response to the attack of Pearl Harbor.


    What about Brian Troxell’s performance did you like?

    The way he was able to show the different moods and expressions of the admirals was remarkable.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    How the admirals were different, but alike in so many ways. They had differents ideas of how to lead, but will be forever known as the best the Navy has seen.
