While reading the latest text book in the American Vision I could only conjure up one reaction that every other volume had brought me too: honk shoe. Boring! I mean what a snooze. Now I'm not one that's easily bored but this is ridicoulous. You've heard of history coming alive? Well this literally kills history. I mean dead. I cannot stress enough how engerless this book is. Literally bored me to tears. I actually cried and I don't do that often. I mean sure I'll cry when a television show cancelled or when I can't figure something out or when my computer takes a long time to load, reagrdless I just want to say that this was a waste of my time. Last time I read a textbook out of school.
