User reviews about the book
Information is ok. It is politically motivated. It leans very left painting America in a horrible light. Majority of the videos do not work anymore. Sad...
Would Tolerate IF IT ACTUALLY WORKED
It won't download. I've tried everything. Fix Your book!

So I downloaded iOS 8 and I had to delete The Americans book so that I have enough space for the update. Now that I'm finished updating iBooks is not allowing me to renown load the book and it shows on my purchased books. Can you guys fix this bug or issue.
This book isn't downloading
Great book, but on page 66 (in landscape view) the graph about Native American, European, and African populations has an error. The first section should say 1492, not 1942. Just so you (the authors/publishers) know. Great book otherwise!
Mistakes on the section quiz
I am using this textbook with my students in US history. They caught a mistake in self-check quiz for chapter 20, section 2. The question is:
The Fordney-McCumber Tariff was meant to
The correct answer is letter c: raise taxes on goods entering the United States, but the quiz claims the answer is b: help Britain and France pay off their war debts.
I am glad to have the book in ibooks format, but could the errors be updated?
This is one of the best textbooks for the iPad I have ever seen, hands down. Accurate and well written with lots of interactive videos, audio and illustrations to keep the learning interesting. I highly recommend this book for anyone who has an interest in learning American History!
Well done, interactive
This is a highly interactive text that the students love. The audio summary at the chapter start is helpful for struggling readers. The tie in to the History Channel's 'History of Us' helps bring history alive by placing relevant clips in the text, again, allowing students that are more visual to grasp the material and see it in a new way.
The only problem is that some review questions at he end of the sections are incorrect, so some proofing is in order. I highly recommend this text. It works well with iPad 3.

Interesting book and really interactive but I have the same book and edition on my ipad that everyone else does but my page numbers are off.
