Professor Woods's audiobook reveals facts that you won't be, or never were, taught in school. It tells you about the "Books You're Not Supposed to Read" and takes you on a fast paced, politically incorrect tour of American history that will give you all the information you need to battle and confound left-wing professors, neighbors, and friends.

Retired with a passion for nonfiction. To find out how my views compare or diverge with respect to what's known.
You learn what they taught you had many parts left out or rewritten to smooth out
the less favorable aspects.
I thought the facts as presented about Roosevelt, the crash of '29 and his struggle to
guide the country through it were somewhat harsh in presentation.
That being said, this book remains a most fascinating listen.
Reading the other reviews, I couldnt believe that they bought the same book. One person claimed the book only attacked the "left". That is an absurd lie. In the book, and in general, the author has no issue whatsoever attacking Republican policies and actions.
Great book. Full of facts. I will listen to it 1-2 times more.
Woods offers a skillful recitation of truth and accuracy of American history. While I can’t say that I agree with every one of the author’s opinions and conclusions presented in this book, I am moved and impressed with the clear and faithful account of the facts. This is absolutely what every American of any age needs to be taught concerning our past. It debunks the inaccurate and incomplete history that is being taught in our schools and pulls together the bits and pieces of our historical background. It would be a great service to teach each and every school child this information. Unfortunately, because most of us are the victims of the public school system, adults as well as children are in dire need of this critical information.
8 out of 10
Shocked about what really happened in comparison to what we've been taught.
This book has loads of information. I gave it a four star because narrator reminded me of a college professor that I had who's voice irritated me. I also don't care for narrators speaking with an accent when quoting someone. He's assuming how people speak. It would have been better had the information seems more organized. It's bits and pieces of American history. Some things were more in depth some where just touched on.
All in all I did learn from this book. However the masses will never believe things that won't fit their narrative; Republican or Democrat.
People that report that Woods is inaccurate need to do their research.
This book should be manditory reading for everyone thinking of voting in upcoming elections. A wonderful - though brutally honest - trip through American politics that helps you understand the truth of our past, the reality of our heroes and where we as a nation have gone both right and wrong.
This was a lot of fun to read. It did force me to ask some "what really happened" questions.
You have to know that the author's perspective was unambiguously small-governement and minimal regulation of commercial/economic affairs.
But knowing that sets you free to enjoy the wit and clarity of his retelling of history.
This is a wonderful, well paced and easy to follow history of the United States that is not taught in high school. It makes you question, not only the history you learned in school, but the "news" you're given today.
the book had a lot of good content but fell short of a really good book. for starters the style of the narration was somewhat annoying because they kept asking questions like "Guess what?" The other problem with the book is that it ONLY attacked the Left Wing. I guess the title had already suggested that but almost every point made was very true to Libertarian principles not necessarily Republican ones. If the author had taken the time to point out the problems by both parties the book would have been easier to digest and had more credibility with me.
It is very interesting and pays great attention to detail.
It isn't afraid to ruffle feathers and tell you things that you may not want to hear.
I'm not sure if I have. He is a little dry, but the book is great.
Yes. I think that it has some relevant data concerning what was supposed to be in place versus what is in place.
I can't say as all the information was useful. The only problem is that it is presented so fast that one needs to listen to the book again to get the full information.
No Character was performed.
U S History as it was.
