I found both this book and Lies My Teacher Told Me to be super boring. I love the concept of these books...something I would really dig...tidbits of history that have now been debunked, or we were just mis-informed or the ole “there’s more to the story”.

But the topics that the author discusses were of zero interest to me. I searched the Table of Contents for something that appealed to me, to draw me in, but nothing. I did start reading some topics, but was bored...the author’s writing style is very dry...dry as a textbook.

I highly do NOT recommend.
