Not as good as the real thing but - very entertaining.

If like me you never got around to reading Zinn's stuff until he passed away then I recommend you get the other book, this is a graphic novel and as such it lacks the depth and detail of his book.
However, if you fancy being educated with out realing it, or you're not into thick heavy history books - go for it!
It's hard to be critical about this graphic novel as it's quite pretty to look at, extremely informative and educational but it lacks the academic punch of the 'real thing'.
