Really? Give me a BREAK! That sentence turned me off reading any of Vowell's 'books'!

Maiga Hamidou I like very well all what she has said.But I would like more on critics.By this I will understand better not only the message or messages that the book carries but also have an idea of the historical backgroung on which she based her self to write this book. But thanks give to her after all because of these great effors she is making to help us understanding many things on history.I hope she will continue on doing so.
