This book was mostly force into my hands by my wonderful American History teacher... and that was the end of it. The fact that I was been force to read the book made me not want to so much as touch it, so I barely got pass the first couple of pages. I read some here and there and I must admit it was really good. It provided me with information that was not in my test book and open a whole new perspective. The problem is that... my teacher was forcing me to make and analysis of it and thus I refused to read it and went straight to b.sing my way through the analysis.
The same thing has happen to more than one book that he force us to read. Is really sad since I am sure that if he had just told me to read it I would have read it... no analysis necessary.
