A little dry and too few graphics for my taste. However, the fact that Jimmy Carter commissioned UGA scholars to write a new comprehensive history of Georgia gives this book more of a source material feel and less of a textbook feel.

This is a really good read but super intense. Lots and lots and lots of information to digest. Don't expect to remember it all.
