The Americans (Gerald A. Danzer, J. Jorge Klor De Alva, Larry S. Krieger, Louis E. Wilson & Nancy Woloch) Book Reviews
Made me sick to my stomachMy school made me pay $15 for this nasty “book”. Waste of money, waste of time, waste of effort. It physically made me nauseous just thinking of opening this book. If you’re thinking of buying it, don’t❤️.Score: 1/5
Wonderful US History Text!This is the text book that I chose after an extensive search three years ago when I was replacing my ten year old texts. As a modern social educator, I am cynical about the state of US history texts as being too fluffy and nationalistic. I was impressed with this text, though. It does a good job of representing US history accurately. I'm still waiting for the full iBooks version to be released, but from what I can see in the sample that is available, it seems like they have expanded on the good text they had and enhanced it with exciting and engaging multimedia to enhance learning. Since I teach in a school that has adopted a 1:1 iPad program, I am very excited to be using this iBook version next year instead of the beastly, but good, textbook version my students have been forced to lug around for three years. The only downside: the students won't get as much of a physical workout!.Score: 5/5

Mistakes on the section quizI am using this textbook with my students in US history. They caught a mistake in self-check quiz for chapter 20, section 2. The question is: The Fordney-McCumber Tariff was meant to The correct answer is letter c: raise taxes on goods entering the United States, but the quiz claims the answer is b: help Britain and France pay off their war debts. I am glad to have the book in ibooks format, but could the errors be updated?.Score: 3/5

Well done, interactiveThis is a highly interactive text that the students love. The audio summary at the chapter start is helpful for struggling readers. The tie in to the History Channel's 'History of Us' helps bring history alive by placing relevant clips in the text, again, allowing students that are more visual to grasp the material and see it in a new way. The only problem is that some review questions at he end of the sections are incorrect, so some proofing is in order. I highly recommend this text. It works well with iPad 3..Score: 4/5

I actually thought the book was really good!I don’t understand why everyone is hating on this book, it’s actually pretty great. Lots of information, and it starts from the very beginning of American History. The only downfall, is that it’s lengthy. But that’s a minor issue. Bottom line, it’s informative, understandable, and one of the better books on American history that doesn’t make you want to jam your head through a wall..Score: 4/5
AUTHORS FYIGreat book, but on page 66 (in landscape view) the graph about Native American, European, and African populations has an error. The first section should say 1492, not 1942. Just so you (the authors/publishers) know. Great book otherwise!.Score: 4/5
Great TextbookThis is one of the best textbooks for the iPad I have ever seen, hands down. Accurate and well written with lots of interactive videos, audio and illustrations to keep the learning interesting.

Videos No Longer Work!If you are thinking of buying this book for the History Channel videos please know that they no longer work and HMH doesn’t care to fix them. They consider the book old and not worth updating. Shame really - with the videos it was a great textbook..Score: 1/5

Revision at its finestAnother example of how American history is rewritten to slant a particular ideology. It is a shame that students are subjected to a version of American history that only focuses on examples of racism, sexism and societal classes. Missing from this text are all of the real examples of great Americans who helped make this country unique as compared to any other that have inhabited the Earth. The text design is flashy and most of the iBook Author's widgets are employed, however the content is much to be desired. The books authors have definitely towed the politically correct line throughout and have failed to provide students with alternative interpretations of many historical events, decisions and issues..Score: 1/5
