I initally used this book in my classes for those students who were having trouble with the regular reading of the required text (McKay 7th edition-History of Western Society). However, I quickly found out that students who read the appropriate chapter of the I.G. Euro His book did much better as they had a better understanding of the specific chapter/topic. I decided to create reading comprehension questions to go along with this book as well. Finally, I made the book mandatory for all of my students and even though I am a public school teacher the parents and students quickly purchased the book by themselves. Easy to read, funny, sarcastic at times, and provides information not always found in the McKay text. A teacher recommended buy. :)
