A halarious review of history, like you've never heard it before. How history has been skewed to glorify presidents and leaders, and to put down others.

Hard to take at one sitting. Author seems upset that his reading of history isn't taught in textbooks. There can be different interpretations of events, and not all events can be put in a single textbook. Author's argument, I suppose, is that most textbooks' information is so insipid or wrong (e.g. Thanksgiving, Helen Keller) that it's counterproductive to have it in there.
