History is about so much more than memorizing facts. It is, as more than half of the word suggests, about the story. And, told in the right way, it is the greatest one ever written: Good and evil, triumph and tragedy, despicable acts of barbarism and courageous acts of heroism.

I had thought of Glen Beck as a radical conservative radio commentator. This book quite changed my opinion of him. I was impressed with the quality of research that went into the creation of this book.

Initially I wondered if the book was historical fiction or what. So I got the hard copy. I found that he is very clear about the dialog being made up, and gives a list of sources for each chapter.

This gave me a feel for some parts of US history that are less well known. It was definitely worth reading. ( )

Relates some historical accounts of events in American history. I enjoyed learning about some things I didn't know before - like what the "shores of Tripoli" reference is in the official song of the Marines. The stories were told well, though I would take them as an interpretation of the facts and not thoroughly accurate in every word. It kept my interest, but I wasn't totally engrossed in it. It's good for a quick listen to become acquainted with or rediscover some events from American history. ( )

I learned so much from reading this book! It was really good. ( )

I learned a lot in this book and it was entertaining, which is what the author was going for. It was a quick read and I really did like it. Perfect for history lovers and goes all the way up to almost present day. 4.5 out of 5 stars, I would recommend it. Even if you'll like some stories better than others. ( )

This publication is well written and researched of twelve historical events told in a narrative format. It is a very easy read and will grasp the attention of a young adult. The author brings history alive with this form. He does add actions and words that may not have taken place but do not affect the historical facts yet follow the particular individuals documented beliefs and actions. More than a book for rote memorization of who, when and where; but also how and why. The way your favorite history teacher of the past use to bring history alive for you so you actually learned from what you were studying beyond the cold facts. Only reason I did not give this five stars is I like my history to be all facts even if it may make the reading of it dry to some. ( )

To the man in Preston, Idaho, who stood and asked me when I would start "writing history as stories to make them more interesting";

To the congressman who stopped himself in the middle of telling me that the history elitists wouldn't like it if I make history entertaining;

And to my son, Raphe, who has curled up next to me to read great American stories, giving me memories I will never forget.
