My father just picked up this book for me tonight. I have a deep admiration for Tom Brokaw and pretty much every current/past nightly news reporter. I have only read the introduction and part of chapter 1, but I am thoroughly enjoying it. I love it because I am a history teacher, and so it applies to much of what I teach. Even if I wasn't a history teacher, I would still recommend this book. It is fascinating, enlightening, and entertaining. What more could a person want from a book? Oh yeah, plus it is based on stuff that really happened.
