The information found here is interesting. My husband, a history enthusiast, and I enjoyed reading the book together and discussing the content. There are some questionable "fallacies" and some things that we were already aware were not true. For the most part, though, the author did a good job of presenting information that is interesting and unknown. I only offered three stars due to the writing style. The 'tongue in cheek' presentation grew annoying at one point, and there were some dull moments that made following the book through somewhat difficult.

Some of the things I always believed turned not to be true. I did know some but many surprises.

I guess I'm too un-PC. I bought the book anticipating that it would present the politically-correct garbage that's being taught in public school American history and civics classes all around the USA (silly me!), but it dealt only with non-controversial issues of science, math, etc. Not that these aren't good to know, but IMHO the title is misleading.two facts: 1)the curricula need to be reworked and 2)parents need to be involved with what their kids are being taught. We're producing generations of sheep who have no critical thinking skills, and that's proven by the government we've elected.
