I read this book for a college history class that I was taking.
The book was very insightful, but I thought it could have held more detail in some more pertinent ares, and left out some of the less insignificant details.

Not a history buff at all, but it's necessary for my US History class. I find it to be easy to read & comprehend. Reads more like a novel than a text.

Easy to read and includes the essential information. Read this as a supplement to a much larger APUSH text and found this book gave a very good overview.

Pretty good for a history textbook.
The average in history textbooks.
