The "ONE STAR" ratings are ridiculous! This book is very enjoyable for children and young teens, as well as adults. It is a excellent pairing for the Killing Lincoln that has been on the NYT Bestseller List for weeks and weeks. These "raters" are obviously Bill O "Haters" so DON'T, under any circumstances take their word for the "ONE STAR" rating...YOU WILL LOVE THIS BOOK!

I really enjoyed this book. I think a lot of teachers should use this book to get students excited about reading about history. Love the authors. I like their straight forward way of telling you things about historical figures, without making them boring. I was also surprised that their own political views didn't color their writings.

Ok.... so, I am 11 and I never knew that John Wilkes Booth actually had other people in on the assasination. I also didn't know that they attacked Secretary of State Stanton in his bed to topple the American government. After I read this book, I researched on the assasination to be sure of the facts even though Mr. O'Reilly does his research. I am a kid, but I like politics. I may not aggree with some of you, but this is a wonderful history book!! :)

You can tell from the start that this will be an interesting factual easy read. There is no political agenda here. Just the story of history in the making. We read this book in anticipation of our trip to Wash DC and Ford theater/ Gettysburg. We knew the facts before we went, and it made it so interesting. I think high school students would really enjoy this read.

If you dont want your kid to read this then dont let him. And i doubt ur actually "lady obama" . If u r, dont call urself that cuz it makes u sound like the wife of a lord. Obama is quite far from that. U know what, u shiuld tell him how communism isnt for america.... he seems to be putting us on that track. Btw... great book! Sorry for my rant but its true;)
