American History in 50 Events (Henry Freeman) Book Reviews

Great readingFantastic.Score: 5/5

Not badI wasn’t expecting much from a free book with under 50 pages, but the author does a good job of giving a (very) brief synopsis of the majority of American history. He left out some key events, such as JFKs assassination, Clinton’s impeachment, the French-Indian War, Watergate, and the Korean War. Would it have been that difficult to do 55 events instead of 50?.Score: 3/5

Nice read for curious impatient readers like myselfWould recommend for a quick overview to see how much you remember from middle school American history.Score: 5/5

Perfect for a quick review of American HistoryI wanted to refresh what I had learned many years ago in my American History class. This was an easily accessible read that reminded me of many things that I had forgotten. It presents events in a nice overview to help you see the big picture..Score: 4/5

American Short StoriesAn exciting overview before delving deeper into dry history. Helps to pick up a topic of an interest..Score: 4/5

Very good I did not expect a book this entertaining about US historyThank you.Score: 5/5

Basically brief Wikipedia summary for each event.This book was informative and had the basic information of American history. I am a history major and realized that there were a few grammatical errors and minor issues regarding some people discussed in the book. Overall the information was basic but good. It was what I expected a book about the main 50 events of American history would be about..Score: 4/5

Great for being freeThe book was an easy and simple read, but sharpened my knowledge on some great moments in history. There are some typos and poorly worded sentences here and there but beggars cannot be choosers!.Score: 4/5

Native Americans?Would have been great hearing more about them, rather than summing it up to "European and Asian divergence".Score: 3/5

Decent bookThe book is very well-put and event oriented. I love it more than any history lessons. Keep up the good work!.Score: 5/5

GreatThis is a well written book, as well informative. The author does a terrific job summarizing keys events that molded America. Most of this information were taught to us in school, so it was a good refreshment of America history. Enjoy :).Score: 5/5

Great little free history bookNice read for a quick and easy US History lesson..Score: 5/5

More info on 9/11 maybe?I think in some parts of this really well made book there just wasn't enough information on the bigger events let's go with 9/11 for example you did a good job on describing what happened but then it just stopped..Score: 5/5

Loved thisI learned so much a lot of refreshment..Score: 5/5

American History in 50 EventsPoorly proofread with dozens of syntax, grammatical, and spelling mistakes. No mention of 7 years war? Korea? Govt treatment of indigenous peoples? Not worth purchasing..Score: 2/5

Like the idea, execution a little sloppyI liked this book, but it had several issues: 1. Incorrect grammar, misspelled or misused words sometimes. It should have been proofread better. 2. Sometimes the opinion of the author would show through. I guess this is OK, but it’s not a book of pure facts for sure. 3. I think there are some mistakes. For instance... it said the Great Recession happened in 2007. I believe things collapsed in Sept. 2008. Am I wrong? There were a few other instances where I thought, “that doesn’t sound correct”, but I can’t remember what they were. All in all it’s a good book though. I like the overview of history it provides, and the fact that it is in small bites, not long dissertations. It’s a very quick read. Would be interesting to see how the author would summarize the Trump presidency, once that is complete. :).Score: 3/5
