    Dangerous

    Clever enough to make a less-informed reader believe the incorrect, misleading and outright made-up "facts". Could have been informative, accurate, and still clever. I read it and deleted it.

    Impressive and Awesome!

    A very unique way to lead the introduction! It contains fairly big amount of data, which helps to get all sorts of details. However, the most special thing is the "non-fact" description. I have read it more than once, and everytime I just laugh the whole book, Wisdow sparkles everywhere as well as humour! Funny but not stupid, I Love it! Especially it's free!

    Weep for the education in America, the book clearly states where

    Weep for the education in America, the book clearly states where opinions differ from facts. Dear reviewers: Mount Everest is not in the USA. Yes. Mt. McKinley is the highest. Get a clue. Book is apparently not for school kids, not great, but good enough.
