It teaches History but... 15 July 2013
By ConsumerAngel - Published on
Verified Purchase
The book teaches about history, and there is a really nice PSI online recourse website that had extra, interesting information. However, I thought the book was difficult to read (maybe not for you though),and there were a lot of bias and assumptions. I especially disliked the continuous bashing of religion and churches. The mistakes and problems within religions were over-focused and negative.The book was written for an anti-religious audience.

This book doesn't stack up very well against others of its kind. It is more expensive and suffers from a lack of important information in some parts of its timeline.

Poor condition 7 Jan. 2013
By lacye soileau - Published on

Well I will say they ship promptly and it arrived very quickly, on that note amazing seller. However the book was listed in good condition, it is in horrible condition, it is extremely damaged and the cover has something all sticky om it and when they placed my reciept on the book in the shipping box it caused the sticky stuff to make the reciept stick so its stuck on the front and i tried to easily pull it off lost half thye reciept and half the cover. This book was definately not worth 54.00. I also keep all my history books because that is my major guess ill definately not be keepimg this one, so now ill have to reorder through a different company:( On a positive note extremely quick delivery :) adn I feel aweful giving a bad review but just not a book in any kind of "good"shape
