The Smart Aleck’s Guide to American History – Adam Selzer

Posted by Laura on June 28, 2010

The Smart Aleck’s Guide to American History by Adam Selzer is a very brief, snarky look at the history of the United States.  Included are the regular bits you would expect to find out about, but you probably will run across some new stuff, too.

This is not to be mistaken for an in depth exam, in fact, the reader is frequently encouraged to seek more information elsewhere.  The reader is also asked to visit the website for the book which is just as snarky you would expect to find it.

I suggest reading it when there is someone sitting near you.  That way you can annoy (educate) them with seemingly random facts (in chronological order).  Oh! This would make a fantastic road trip book!  And then you could play Billy Joel’s We didn’t start the fire before, during and after reading chapter 10.  But, you will have to find your own copy of the song.
