Free (Kindle-ended) Stupid American History

Stupid American History: Tales of Stupidity, Strangeness, and Mythconceptions by Leland Gregory

Quote:
Product Description
America is the home of the brave and, apparently, the stupid and gullible. Satirist Leland Gregory teaches us a lesson in historical hilarity with Stupid American History.

From Columbus to George W. Bush (that's a lot of material, people), Leland leads us through American history's mythconceptions, exposing idiocy and inanity along the time line. He reeducates by informing us about myths. For example, Samuel Prescott actually was the guy to alert us that the British were coming and not that Paul Revere dude.

Move over Colbert and Stewart; satire has finally found its rightful place in American history.

Now is free at B&N. It is listed as "This week’s Free Fridays", so I don't know for how long this deal will last.

I read this book, and I have to say, it was very entertaining.

No longer free on Kindle. Old link didn't work for me either (gave an error message).

That's probably because it looks like they've replaced the old Topaz version with a Mobi, if I'm reading the Product Details correctly.

That's actually a different book, one I have in paper. Still worth having, IMO, but I wanted the other one.

What's different than what? I had apparently gotten this book when it was free on Amazon and forgot, because I just got the epub from B&N and found I already had it as a mobi.

By the way, I notice that this book, and many like it, such as the Dictionary of Misinformation, IIRC, don't cite any sources. Why should I believe what these books say over what I'd been taught? Huh? Huh? Why? Huh?

The one that was free on Amazon is Stupid American History, and the free one at B&N is Stupid History (with international stories). Two different books. Stupid American History is $7.99 on B&N.

The author writes with a bit of a conservative slant, so if you're sensitive to that, you should be aware of it going in, but it's a funny book, nonetheless.

Ah, I see, today's B&N link should have been added to THIS OTHER THREAD instead.
I'll post Little Bear's link there.

I knew definitely had it free from Amazon in the past.
Now I'm sorry I missed the American one.

Oh good, maybe it'll fix my alignment. I've been pulling to the Left from listening to NPR.
