    "I really like this book for being informative without being 'preachy'. The author doesn't try to persuade the reader to adopt a political viewpoint."

    "In history class we always heard about Native Americans in terms of their reactions to the colonists, but never about what life was like in the period before Europeans arrived. This book is a really interesting insight into what that era was like. Very good read."

    "1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus is a well researched analysis of the history of America before contact with Europe. I was thoroughly impressed by the new material and stark contrast to the narrative the we grew up with. Important book that all should be familiar with."

    "Well written and very informative. I learned a lot from this book. I knew I had received some misinformation when learning this stuff in school and this book finally set me straight. It gave me the clarity I've been wanting on this subject."

    "I found this book to be one of those types of books that you can really get into and feel like you are living back in that time. It covers civilizations before Columbus thru archaeological and scientific evidence and gives us a look at how the Indians really lived. I learned more from this book than from my old history books.

    "This book includes a ton of good information we don't learn in school about North American and South American history. I feel a lot more informed since reading it. It's a great choice to read for an AP class or for anyone who wants real knowledge about half of the world."
