Since I have just received the book and have not read it, I offer a description from Wikipedia: "A People's History of the United States is a 1980 non-fiction book by late American historian and political scientist Howard Zinn. In the book, Zinn seeks to present American history through the eyes of working people, rather than political and economic elites. A People's History has become a major success and was a runner-up in 1980 for the National Book Award. It has been adopted for reading in some high schools and colleges across the United States and has been frequently revised, with the most recent edition covering events through 2003. In 2003, Zinn was awarded the Prix des Amis du Monde Diplomatique for the French version of this book, Une histoire populaire des Etats-Unis. Over one million copies have been sold."

My copy came with a tear in the rear cover... not a big deal, just slightly annoying. For anybody trying to order this book: The revised edition (this one) is made to be a casually readable version, whereas the original was made to be a class textbook. Just something to keep in mind. Overall Great value, best deal on this book i could find anywhere online (when including shipping).

If you're ordering this, you probably already know what to expect. That's what you'll get. It is as described, like any other RSV.

I purchased this cookbook after a friend of mine made the delicious fresh mushroom soup from a recipe from this book. It was fabulous. I found the cookbook on-line searching overstock.com by author. The book I received was a new, updated revision on the one she had and even better than hers. I have used several recipes from it. I remember foods that I had when I was a child growing up in a Polish family, and sure enough, I found them in this cookbook. Every one turned out just as I remember. I would recommend this cookbook to anyone who is trying to find things from their "roots" of being Polish. What a joy !!!!!!

Definitely NOT a Catholic Bible. No apocrypha. Description is misleading.

My book club read it and most of us, an international group of New York-based men and women, thought it was a remarkably clear-eyed look into Occupied France, made all the more remarkable by the fact that the writer was creating it during the actual period... and knowing she might soon be whisked away to a concentration camp. We felt the 2 novellas were certainly not polished, since she had no chance for revisions, corrections etc. Still -- readable and highly recommended.

This is mistitled. What it is is basically the 1961 edition with an addendum of neologisms. I thought it would be a revised edition in toto. But it is still useful enough. I am waiting for the OED in 2014, so I thought this would hold me over.

This is one of the most important personal development books ever, and it comes highly recommended. Read it and start changing your mindset from someone who repels money to someone who attracts it.

This book is exactly what it says it is- an encyclopedia. It is divided into no less than five "books." Measuring in at about one and a half inches thick, if the info contained inside doesn't help you get bigger, just try lifting the book! A quick rundown of each chapter. The first book is basically an introduction to bodybuilding, covering a lot of miscellaneous, but important topics. The second book covers the training programs, the third the body part exercises, and the fourth book competing. The fifth and last book covers nutrition and diets. As you can tell, there's really only one word to describe this book- comprehensive. Would have liked to see a little more on injuries, for example there only about a half page on shoulder injuries, but then again this isn't exactly a sports medicine book either. Also recommend "Treat Your Own Rotator Cuff " if you have a shoulder problem or rotator cuff tear that is keeping you out of the gym.

Ok, so 15 minutes a day won't cut it, but this little book was very helpful for a procrastinator like me. Useful tips you can put into practice so you can finally wrap up that PhD!

Excellent information on how the human body processes various foods. Explains how heart disease and other common illnesses weren't around in early 1900s because we weren't consuming vast quantities of sugar, corn syrup and processed white flour. He explains how other cultures eat diets with healthy nuts, grains and lots of fats (good fats) and don't get heart disease and don't overeat. Well, at least until the fast food restaurants show up.... Dr. Atkins gives many examples of different people and their unhealthy symptoms and explains how to change your diet to fresh fruit, vegetables, healthy fats and lean meats and change your life for a healthier one. You will most likely find an example of yourself in this book somewhere. You need to read the whole book and not just jump to the 14-day diet. You have to understand the overall message Dr. Atkins is telling you about processing food and identifying problems with your current way of eating. Ultimately, you need to exercise regularly and forever change the way you eat . This way of eating is not a month-long or 6-month fix to lose weight. Dr. Atkins gives you the tools for how to eat properly to stay healthy and live longer but you need to commit to it permanently.

I was very excited to receive my copy of "The Alarm Wristwatch," as I'm fascinated by these much-overlooked horological devices. The book is nicely photographed, and it contains a much-needed analysis of the various (and relatively few) watch movements that power the many different types of alarm wristwatches that were sold. The book is weakest when it attempts to provide a definitive list of manufacturers that sold an alarm wristwatch--numerous brands are missing, which some might interpret to mean that such items are fantasy or counterfeit pieces. I think this is a useful book that contains a great deal of well-researched information, and I welcome a revised edition that fills in the information gaps in the current edition.

This is the bible for all who want to be successful. A bit intense, with the chapter on "Organized Planning" going a little too long. Otherwise, Great!

A beautiful Catholic Bible at a very affordable price. I am very pleased.
