This is by far one of the easiest history books that you can find, yet it is very detailed in the events that it describes and lays them out logically. While entire books could be devoted to any one of the events that Beschloss describes, he does a great job in explaining the essentials of the most important events that shaped our nation.
One of the most balanced history books that I have read in some time.

This book started off a little slow for me, because I had just recently read books about John Adams, Andrew Jackson vs. Nicholas Biddle, Lincoln,... So I already knew some of the stories at the beginning of the book (although there were a few interesting tidbits here and there that added some spice to the stories). The parts of the book that I enjoyed the most were the parts about Harry Truman and Israel, JFK and Civil Rights, and Reagan and the Soviets. These are much more recent in history (some of it I even grew up through), but it's stuff that I knew a lot less about. One of the things that really struck me was how different things were back in the days of FDR, Truman, and JFK in terms of the blatant racism and anti-Semetism (even from the Presidents and their families themselves). We really have come a long way in a short amount of time.
