Brief, 6-page transcripts of TV interviews on CSPAN of authors who have written nonfiction books about American figures and subjects.

An easy way to get a small amount of knowledge about topics in American history.

Write-ups of Brian Lamb's "Booknotes" show on CSPAN. 72 authors are interviewed, ranging from Isaac Stern to Sandra Day O'Conner. Reading this book is extremely educational. I gave it a "10" out of 10!
