Customer Reviews

Not worth the money

Pretty lacking in actual history, the book covers pretty much what every Californian knows already, feels like it was written from snippets off Wikipedia

Only Okay

Some of the bits are interesting, but the thing feels like it was cobbled together from Internet articles. The writing is amateurish and a little sloppy.
