Booknotes: Stories from American History by Brian Lamb

Interesting, but at first disappointing because each chapter is obviously only a slightly embellished transcript of one of the Booknotes interviews. The info is good, but the delivery depends on the speaking style of the historian. Some are good. Some are really bad. But it did pique my interest enough to add books on Charles Lindbergh, Robert E. Lee on Leadership, Women of the Slaveholding South in the Civil War, the Scopes Monkey Trial, the Western Impact on the Middle East, and Al Smith to my reading list.
