    "This is a free ebook for Kindle from Amazon. It purportedly covers the Middle Ages - which is a significant span of time in history - in 52 pages? There is also a paperback available for around $13. Readers give this book mostly 4 to 5 stars, so this author must have made his writing interesting. The book is short enough, however, that if you decide you *don't* like it, you will probably be finished before even realizing you don't care for it."

    "I learned everything about American history in this simply yet aptly titled book. It's really amazing how complete and thorough this book is. It feels like there's been absolutely nothing left out from the entire history of the country. I would highly recommend it and you can always us it to beat your friends at American trivia!"
