This book is bias but openly so. Zinn tells you at the beginning that he is going to tell you a bias history. He tells the story from the point of view of the poor, repressed and downtrodden.
I really enjoyed the stories and characters that I was able to learn about. Very touching stories. Sometimes sad but often stories of great people that tried to change the world for the better.
Sad but wonderfully told story about the prisoners of war in WWII. While the main character is an American the story also tells us a lot about the Japanese and why they did what they did. Great book. Can't say enough about it. One of my favorites from Audible.
I wish that everyone could read a book like this. The world needs to start thinking for themselves and not relying upon age old myths and stories. We all make up our own morality. It doesn't take magic or a God to make us moral. We all choose to do what we do.
Very open and at times shocking look into the world of Islam. Ms. Ali is very open about her story and tells the story of her escape from Islam. But how that it is still trying to hold her back and destroy her.
I enjoyed getting to learn about each of the Bankers. About their strengths and weaknesses, but also their egos. The book also explain that if most of the nations involved would have been willing to do things a little differently WWII may have been prevented.
Very interesting and good overview of how the current political system has become corrupted. Very good but also very sad. Highly reccommond for anyone interested in understanding why the politicians never get anything done.
The story is good and flows well. It keeps you interested and is fun. The characters are very colorful and you get to know and understand them. The only thing that I missed was the humor. Book 1 was a bit funnier in it satire.
I really enjoyed the book. A very good book that explains how evolution works. It shows that everything really isn't just chance and that sometimes evolution does not benefit the organism.
Very good flow and the author keeps you interested.
Very good history of God and the evolution of religious belief. It is amazing what people have and do believe. It has something for everyone.
Some reviewers have stated that the book is slow. But I thought that it flowed very well. The only thing that I had some trouble with was the names. I sometimes forgot the characters names and so would be a little confused. The story build and builds and you just want to know what is going to happen next. I enjoyed it and I'm looking forward to the next book.
