The first chapter about the election of 1988 is boring. I had trouble getting through that chapter. I didn’t get interested in the book until the Bill Clinton years. I’m glad that the author didn’t write from a political party point of view, but instead wrote the history of those twenty years. I was disappointed that the author mentioned the O.J. Simpson trial. What does that have to do with America’s political history? Nothing. It should have never been mentioned. I would only recommend “A Century Turns” to history/political buffs and teachers.
Note: I would like to thank Thomas Nelson for sending me this complimentary copy to review.
