A great book for an overall picture of the American Revolution. Doesn't concentrate on any one area or event, instead choosing to give a brief description of all the significant pieces.
Has a great collection of artwork, pictures of original documents, maps and other "extras" in the margins and within the text. Reminds me of what I saw in history text books back in school

Middle-of-the-road, moderately satisfactory, relatively readable, and adds additional depth (not found in Chernow’s ‘definitive’ Washington biography) to an important period in Washington’s life and the beginning of the French and Indian War / Seven Years War. Could have used some additional information about the other people who appear in the narrative, such as why they are there and where they go afterwards. Also neglects to include the proper name of the Native American chief Tanaghrisson.

But Mr. Axelrod, we do not call someone a “half-breed” unless that term is included inside a quote from a historical source.

A fun collection of words and phrases collected from movies, pulps, stories, etc. that might be easily found online but is nice to have on the shelf for story hooks or triggers or just a bit of snappy patter.

An interesting premise and it had some interesting Monopoly related information. However, it was not well edited or structured and very disjointed. Thankfully it was a pretty quick read, otherwise I don't know if I would have finished it. I almost wish I had read a book about Monopoly and a book about business instead. If you want a little bit of both in a package that hits you over the head again and again with the same information than this is the book for you.
