Comments Stuff Every American Should Know

  • David

    This was nice read, informative, and contain couple of things I was not aware ofBlue Jeans were not invented in the US by Levi Strauss (he definitely helped popularize them in US thou) - they in fact have their beginnings from India and Europe. In 16th Century in India, they sold hard-wearing blue fabric from Dongari Fort (dubbed "Dungagree); In Europe they wore Italian fabric as the "blue of Genoa" (bleu de Genes), hence blue jeans in English.If you enjoyed this book, I would recommend the book [...]

    It can be read quickly, since it's very small. I got it from the library; I'm glad I didn't buy it. I could have done without the apple pie recipe and turkey carving info, which is not the type of info I expected. The book kept me from being bored while I waited for my son to do his driver's ed.

    Interesting and informative book that can essentially be read in 30 minutes. Despite the preface presenting the caveat that there inevitably will be disagreement about what constitutes "stuff you should know", I think does a pretty good job, and as someone who has basically picked up clues of all the different facets of the US, this wraps it up nicely.

    As a self proclaimed history buff I absolutely enjoyed this short but interesting book. I skimmed over the recipes for typical good old fashioned American food yet I am positive they will come in handy some day (there were only 2 or 3 recipes). This book is filled with tons of fascinating facts that every American will truly appreciate. The short topics and straight forward writing allows intrigued readers to understand clearly and share their new found knowledge with others.

    A great little pocket guide to things Americans from the USA should be aware of. I think the baseball question should have come before the football or corndog question, but we won't quibble. I would imagine of you're moderately educated you know the bulk of this already. Anyway, it includes a sample citizenship test at the end to see if you belong here or not. Good luck!

    A cute little reference book with the most essential Americana skills. Some fun facts I didn't know and a handy reference for "the classics" Gettsyburg address, start spangled banner, declaration of independence.


  • Charlotte Lamboley

    Short but funny and great esthetics :)


  • Shannon

    A decent enough read when you're bored. Some interesting tidbits.


  • Kathy (Bermudaonion)

    I'd give this 3.5 stars.


  • Cheryl

    This pocket-sized book is a great overview of the important stuff ;). Like where did blue jeans originate, Top 10 American foods, and historical stuff, too. A fun quick read.


  • Hunter

    Interesting read, good for picking up a few trivia facts.
