I wouldn't not recommend this book. Sections of the book were fascinating. This interesting, fact-filled book is basically THE HISTORY CHANNEL’s special series of ten one-hour documentaries in book form. The days chosen weren't necessarily the most famous days of our nation - no signing of the declaration of independence, no Gettysburg address, no walking on the moon - but days that were major turning points for the United States. I thought there would be chapters dedicated to the constitution, the Lincoln Assassination, Kennedy Assassination, Watergate, 9/11, etc. %PDF-1.3
Overall, this book helps a lot to understand important events that not many people aren't aware of. To see what your friends thought of this book, 10 Days That Unexpectedly Changed America. Study 10 10 Days That Unexpectedly Changed America flashcards from Molly Z. on StudyBlue. I haven't seen the 10 hour documentary based off of this book, but the book was very helpful to understand the chain of events that led to one major event we're pretty much aware of.
It's a pretty basic overview, and even I already knew quite a bit of the information. 4 0 obj This book does not disappoint.
Some people may have picked other events to include in this book. Given the breadth of topics covered, the book can only scratch the surface surrounding the history of each day. �D=��h��Pj8�ĥ>�3�*�3��v�)�pW��2A��"ͩ�%�+TQkd����N�KM>9��9H�ٹD'b[��%�N�1�0�4Bqa� ^�P�TKB�Z����2f��`(֚H����. I would have found this book very interesting and it would have received a much higher rating for it didn't posses as many flaws as I encountered. They then commissioned 10 directors to create hour-long TV documentaries about each of the events, and asked historian Steven Gillon to independently write a book about the 10 days. This book was very informative, extremely detailed and impressively researched. However, I think, even though he may not have chosen the best days or events to discuss, that Gillon did an excellent job in portraying the events that he did choose and he did it with historical accuracy. 2) There are a couple of simple factual errors... for example, the book states that slaves first came to the US in 1607... that's when the first colonists arrived.
Very well done book about 10 significant events in American history.

I enjoyed the specific For Further Reading sections at the end of each chapter. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. It was a decent overview of several important events, but it had very little support for the thesis that these events in particular changed America, and in fact I found in some cases it argued that the event did NOT change America, but merely was evidence of the conditions at the time. The book is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble for less than $15. Each moment that is captured is a pivotal moment that helped forge and define the character of America. I would never recommend this book to anyone, History Students, American History Students.
As the TV show would be I presume, it was interesting enough to make me want to read a book about several of the events, the ironic thing is that it is a book itself. Start by marking “10 Days That Unexpectedly Changed America” as Want to Read: Error rating book. I'm not sure what I was expecting from this book. Although the book is interesting, the chapters (10 of them) cover lesser known topics. Each of the 10 events are not well-known as "changing America" but they truly had a dramatic effect on our history.
Second, the format and the text itself was often misleading and somewhat difficult to follow, which took away from the good parts of the book. Good review of some important events that are often overlooked. I thought there would be chapters ded. This book gives significance to historical events, making the history easier to connect with and remember. But other days, start of the gold rush, Freedom Riders killed in Mississippi, union strikers vs strike busters, early American attempts to control or establish laws. It starts with the meeting of Native Americans and Europeans and concludes with justice for the victims of Freedom Summer 1964. I reference this book in several of my papers and in casual conversations with friends and family.
