This was from me to my old man this holiday gift sharing occasion. I have never personally given my Dad a gift that he seemed even remotely interested in. Nor has my mother. And not my many brothers. He is a nice, sweet man. It is just seemingly impossible to give him something that gets him. Until now.....
He and I, Pops and Me, have a few things in common. Most are not applicable in this review, but we are both loco for history. Especially American History. This book looked very intriguing as it is beautiful in its 500 photographs. Im not a phd in history but i know facts much better than i have accurate visuals for them. This book provided that. So my Dad opened the paper and glanced at the book. In a noncommittal way he said he would look forward to looking at it later. As he moved to set it down, and my hopes were dashed again, he last minute brought it back to him and opened it up! And he dropped out of conversation for 20 minutes, engrossed in this book he didn't even seem interested in at first. When i tried to bring into the chat he was distracted and flipping all about this masterpiece.
So that is all the review i think anyone would need, eh? enjoy it as a history fan or surprise someone with something like this. when you know you know, ya' know?
