Written by people who can't write, but they don't seem to know that yet. Too many attempts at flowery metaphors that fell flat or were confusing. Too many racist, sexist sentiments. This is old white men's history of the US. That's an old and boring story as it is but it's not even told very well. I had to read it. I don't recommend it.
