What did you love best about Heroes and Legends?

Loved this book with some of its insightful discussions of the greater political work vs. individual struggles.

Any additional comments?

The author was awful in his descriptions of American westerns. What happened to "Shane", "The Virginian","The Searchers", Luis Lamour, Matt Braun and Zane Grey? He totally missed the mark on this.

The book was filled from start to finish with bad facts, bad chronology, bad information and bad conclusions. No one should even waste their time and money on this book.

What did you love best about The History of the United States, 2nd Edition?

I learned a lot that I didn't know -- particularly about Reconstruction.

Any additional comments?

I would like someone else to do the last segments. Not only were there errors, the instructor seemed biased.

What is all this religious stuff about? This book has the potential to be a modestly good thriller, but there is just too much junk in the story. Did someone edit this? Did someone rewrite this?

I love getting backstory for characters even if they are not "canonical". However Jeri Taylor contradicts the story of the show from time to time and she simply cannot get the idea of a Janeway/Chakotay romance out of her mind. Every book she has written throws them together and the "canonical" storyline doesn't. Give it up Jeri!
