Gallop. Don’t blink while reading Jill Lepore’s book titled, These Truths: A History of the United States. If you blink, you might miss a major episode in American History because Lepore writes at a galloping pace. Believe it or not, this almost thousand-page book manages to be concise while still being comprehensive. I can’t think of something important that she skipped. No matter how much you think you know about American History, it can be helpful for a fresh examination through the scholarship of a contemporary historian.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
