Professor Woods does an excellent job of refuting some of the common myths of American history. I sincerely wish this book was required reading for high school students today I wish I had a book like this when I was in high school back in the 1990s. My favorite part of the book is Wood's critique of Reconstruction he shows clearly that the Radical Republicans abused their authority in order to keep themselves in power. I remember my history teacher giving me only politically correct articles to read on this period of history. Parents, buy this book and make your kids read it!

What a great, enjoyable book! It's filled with little-known facts, as well as lots of good, recent sources -- AND, yes, some old books too (written before the p.c. craze took over). It's NOT true that the author provides no support for his arguments -- book suggestions and internal references are all over the place, not to mention a 10-page biblio. On the Puritan-Indian issue, he cites scholarly articles and one of the most influential books on the issue ever written. What more could you ask for in an intro book? And there's much more. Want to know what the First Amendment was really supposed to mean? How about the forgotten Ninth Amendment? Want to know Jefferson's strategy for keeping government limited? The truth about big business? The truth about FDR and his New Deal? The truth about the War on Poverty? And on and on? You'll find the facts here -- and countless references to follow up on. A treasure. I must have given away 15 copies this past Christmas. My hat is off to this brave scholar, who's written a factually sound and totally enjoyable book.

As one who considers himself a minor history buff, I find that I have enjoyed reading books that add to my knowledge. This PIG Guide to American History not only provides what many school textbooks do not, but fills the margins with other titles and sources of information for anyone who wishes to dig deeper into the stories that made America what it is. I thoroughly enjoyed this reading and found each topic well packaged for easy digestibility. This would make a great gift for any college grad who majored in history or for anyone who enjoys learning about our past.

This book is entertaining, enlightening and a treasure trove of facts, both shocking and trivial. Highly recommended.

This is a great step/introduction into further and more indepth reading about all the politically incorrect aspects of American History. Read with an open mind and rely on logic and you'll certainly enjoy it.

Its about time someone wrote something to counteract all this revisionist history taking place all over America.

This is the book I have been looking for. I absolutely love this book. It uses actual specches and writtings of our founding fathers. It is what they thought, felt, and believed. There is no revision here just the truth. Revision is what you get in the classroom. I would highly recommend it to those who want to know what happened. The only down side I could is the book does not deep enough fo me.
