His history recounting is fairly solid.

I take real issue with his writings in the ENDLESS introduction, followed by the ENDLESS prologue. Every fact he lays on the table is preceded by an extensive ramble about the stupidity and laziness of whomever is the target of that particular paragraph. Teachers, textbook review committees, textbook authors, etc.

His writing is far too arrogant and adversarial to be instructive.
