You Must Read This Book

Everyone in the U. S. Should read this book.
This is the first book that I immediately wanted to start over as soon as I finished. It made me marvel at the supreme incompetence of my high school history teacher who managed to make this story tedious and boring.

- America, 1927
- By: Bill Bryson
- Narrated by: Bill Bryson
- Length: 17 hrs and 3 mins
One of the most admired nonfiction writers of our time retells the story of one truly fabulous year in the life of his native country - a fascinating and gripping narrative featuring such outsized American heroes as Charles Lindbergh, Babe Ruth, and yes Herbert Hoover, and a gallery of criminals (Al Capone), eccentrics (Shipwreck Kelly), and close-mouthed politicians (Calvin Coolidge). It was the year Americans attempted and accomplished outsized things and came of age in a big, brawling manner. What a country. What a summer. And what a writer to bring it all so vividly alive.

I had no idea so much happened in that one summer. Extremely well written. I have recommended this book to all my friends.
