Book Review:
The Complete Idiot's Guide to the American Revolution by Alan Axelrod

This is such an easy reference book on the subject! The book starts with ancient American history and goes through Y2K. Pretty comprehensive.

It's written in an easy-to-read format, with chapters and sections clearly outlined, so one can just pick it up and start just about anywhere and read a section.

It's pretty condensed, but a great starting point for lots of basic information. It's also not just about wars and other political incidents, but addresses things like the Constitution, Ross Perot, how Rockefeller got started, the end of slavery, the Right to Life movement... like I said, it's really comprehensive.

I highly recommend this to anyone who likes history, but doesn't need or want a scholarly tome on the subject.
