I read this book towards the end of 2003. I do remember liking it, and now that I look back, I still think it is a lot better than Colbert's book, which I reviewed here as well. ( )

Just so much fun and so smart. ( )

Quirky and entertaining. I loved the beginning. ( )

I'm not sure how much the "teacher's edition" adds, but it's a cute idea--they got some history professor to make comments in red ink in the margins. ( )

I can't imagine recommending this to anyone. George Washington suffered from syphilis? This is a pure myth. Of course, Stewart also tells his listeners that George really did chop down the cherry tree.

So, IF, you already know your American History, this can be a humorous book. But if you are using it to cram for an exam tomorrow...well, beware that it is largely tongue-in-cheek. ( )
