    Great Idea which would be even better if People and Events, Etc.

    Great Idea which would be even better if People and Events, Etc., were placed in chronological order and if there was more diversity, perspectives which on-going included Native American, African American, Hispanic, and Asian American voices. Sure hope it is reissued!

    Highly recommended

    This is a well organized, fascinating compilation of facts I've long forgotten. I've already ordered the first installment of this (what I hope will be a) series with high anticipation. I, like many readers, read several pages a day as it is hard to put down. I give this otherwise 5 star book 4 stars because of the ridiculously small font. A gem for any home library or nightstand.

    Just in time for the election!

    Focusing on American History, the Intellectual Devotional: American History, provides an interesting and thoughtful context to current events and is a great primer as we head into election season. A great follow-up to the first Intellectual Devotional!

    A Treat for Yourself

    This simply put is a fascinating and fun book. It's like a miniature index of intelligence. There are things in here that will interest you or perhaps intrigue you enough to buy his first book 'The Intellectual Devotional: Revive Your Mind, Complete Your Education, and Roam Confidently with the Cultured Class'. I also highly recommend the book 'Understanding: Train of Thought', you won't be disappointed with any of these.
