Good overview of US History
I realized last spring while learning virtually with my teens that I had a few gaps in my knowledge of US history. This book covered all of the main events I was expecting, plus a few more. I even found myself learning new information as I listened.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

The performance was really good. The man sounded like he was reporting the news as it happened. But the actual "history" written by the author was more biased than you would expect for a cursory reading. The events selected were just odd.
