I will read just about anything by Bill Bryson. Even something as seemingly overdone as a book on American history.
Things of note:
*His writing style is so engaging. I'm not sure how he does this time and again, but I'm never bored (even though the topic didn't really engage me to begin with and I may have glazed over at times when he started to get into baseball statistics).
*I don't think I knew Charles Lindbergh was an anti-Semite.
I think I've forgotten what other notable items I may have wanted to bring up. Nevertheless, I enjoyed this immensely. I would recommend this to anyone who likes a well-written narrative nonfiction historical snapshot.
