A poor review of the book by Brian Kilmeade

Would you try another book from Instaread and/or Michael Gilboe?

I read the actual book by Brian Kilmeade and found it filled with accurate historical fact. The review was missed the real point of the actual book. Key takeaways of Brian Kilmeades's book to me appeared to be missing. Read the real book. It is factual and an exciting book to read.

Has Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates: The Forgotten War That Changed American History by Brian Kilmeade and Don Yaeger | Key Takeaways, Analysis & Review turned you off from other books in this genre?

If they can not follow the history of the book, don't write a review.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Narrator was fine, it was the content that was bad.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates: The Forgotten War That Changed American History by Brian Kilmeade and Don Yaeger | Key Takeaways, Analysis & Review?

I would stick to the point, and the importance the book expresses. One key point I took away from the book was, if we hadn't gone to war with the pirates, we would not have been ready for the war of 1812. By Jefferson going to war, he readied us for the unknown. The British returning to take our country from our new leaders.

Any additional comments?
