Sep 17, Sara rated it really liked it Recommended to Sara by: This book really is an eye-opener and is good for helping the reader establish, or at least ponder, their thoughts on textbooks and the American educational system.
The author definitely writes from the standpoint that one must understand history to understand the present.
