This book came in great condition, but I didn't realize until I got it that it is not the updated version with the extra chapters at the end.

practical advice

I ordered it and have been enjoying a different type of history book ever since. It's a most enjoyable and thought provoking read. As a bonus, I get to carry on conversations about history with my grandson.

informative....

An entertaining history book. I am not a history buff. My grandson had this book for his social studies class and I read a chapter while he was visiting. It was not the stuffy history books I remember from school days.
