It's Howard Zinn in graphic novel form - if you're already a fan of his work, this one's an easy sell.
It's easy and fun to pick up and read, partly because of the great artwork and format, but mostly because Howard Zinn's style is so accessible and personal.
It's an easy read, but not a frivolous one. Zinn writes from a distinct perspective - sometimes you'll agree with him, sometimes you'll disagree - but as a historian, he's meticulous about his facts.
This would be a great book for any teenager, especially for a parent who wants to talk with their teen and encourage them to think for themselves. It doesn't indoctrinate, it educates.
