Book Review: America: Teacher's Edition

Book Description For everyone who was too cheap to buy the hardcover, the blockbuster, award-winning No. 1 New York Times bestseller is now in trade paperback--with a new introduction, fully updated, and with equally unsettling nude photos of the newest Supreme Court justices, and a text corrected by the most reputable college professor we could find/afford. Including: • Historical inaccuracies, gross distortions, complete fabrications-corrected by real-life bearded college ...more

Straight from Comedy Central’s hit “The Daily Show” comes this spoof on the land of the free and the home of the apathetic. Formatted like a teachers text with plenty of sidebars, red-line “corrections”, trivia, photos and so much more, all with the cutting wit and attitude of the popular TV show, this is a decidedly different take on American history and world events. For instance, do you know what Rome’s most enduring legacy might be? Do you know who made America’s most controversial Supreme Court nominees list? Ever wonder what President Jimmy Carter looked like in a full beard? Follow the campaign trail, the demise of third parties, write stump speeches, develop a campaign team and win endorsements as the country “changes sheets” every four years.
