Funny (ish), but no great effort at accuracy.
13 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A good deal out of context, or just plain wrong. I've seen PM for years, and I think he mostly annoyed he was born too late to be a 60's militant.

Nobody is trying to hide history. The reason "you weren't taught this in school" is twofold: 1 - You weren't paying attention, and 2 - You only took it for a year. The average history teacher has to go from Plato to NATO in 38 weeks. In classrooms full of kids who don't care. Take a look at an average HS history 101 text. Each PARAGRAPH deserves a separate book to cover the basics. Can we all stop pretending it's a big plot? You think you've been lied to or glossed over? Go to the local library and do some work.

Love and kisses, a cranky ex-high school history teacher.
