Goes back towards the beginning
As a better-informed history buff and resident of one of the original 13 colonies, this book's opening chapter is so exciting since the analyses of the interplay between wide-ranging societal influences is extensive with no tedium. The timeline tables in each section are great for helping to understand cause and effect between influential events and serves for clarifying reference even from neighboring sections. I have read all of the opening chapter and other selected portions but have yet to finish a throrough sequential reading of it all. I am anticipating an equally enlightening experience as I read it all in sequence.
The author's identification of historical and conceptual errors propagated by various institutions is particularly useful since without these pointers one might forget the intellectual handicap under which those who are ignorant of history or are misinformed by such institutions must suffer. The footnotes that support the truth are extensive, allowing readers to enlighten themselves further on matters that matter to them.
For a more detailed report on this work, there is an extensive factual criticism on this site that identifies several factual errors - I've not verified them for they are mostly obvious or not philosophically damaging the narrative. I have copied, printed and inserted it into my volume for verification as I use and reuse this great volume.

Big Book- Great Info
This is not the kind of book that you sit down and read all the way through. It is a comprehensive review of history and a great read, but must be digested a piece at a time....Loved it....

History without the P.C.
Although I haven't read the entire book, I am impressed by the lack of political correctness that seems to be the norm for so called historical books today. The authors tell it like it was with no agenda. Good, long read. Very interesting. Well done.

I had seen the book on the 700 Club TV show a couple of years back and wanted to wa it 'till it came down in price. I knew I'd be able to get on one Alibris for much cheaper, so I did.
The book was a lot more than I was ready for. I was thinking (for some reason) that it'd be a couple of hundred pages but is over 800. It will take me months to finish. I'm at page 217 and haven't even got to the civil war.
So far it has been very enlightening. Of particular interest to me has been the way the book brings out the ongoing battle between state sovereignty and federal sovereignty. I would have liked to see more of the history of the American indians at the beginning of the book, but that's just me.
If you love history and you've got stickability, then get it, you'll enjoy it.
