American History by William Willis
The blurb pretty much covers everything that the book entails. It definitely is a road map to discovering America and where everything originates. What I found interesting in the book was that it wasn’t just a history book. The format, writing style, and the layout of the book are designed to make you feel as if you are part of the history, even if you are not American. You feel for the founders, the people, the way everything shapes up to make the country that it is today. It makes you proud and drives you in wanting to know more about the land. The book also includes pictures, which enhances the quality of the book. I recommend this book to anyone that wishes to read more on the History of the Americans.

History of Religion by Michael Stewart
Religion has always been a sensitive topic. It is one that generates many discussions, arguments, disagreements, and conflict. What this book appears to do is to provide information and guide towards some of the great faiths in the world. From Prophet Muhammad, The Crusades, and the history of Jerusalem to Greek Gods, Egyptian mythology, and the Roman religions, this book covers many similarities and differences between the religions. What I felt this book did justice of was that it appeared true to giving each religions fair amount of depth, space and information. It did not give preference to any particular faith or provide any intelligence that would contradict a belief causing a conflict of interest. I recommend this book to anyone that is open enough to read about religion.
