On 11/4 Joseph Bangerter wrote: So A Century Turns is basically a history book. I hated my U.S. History in high school. I just had a hard time getting into to all the politics and amendments and all that. But if you like U.S. History, I am sure that you will love this book. It took me a long time to read, just because it was a tough ... Book Review for www.BookSneeze.com
