Kenneth C. Davis is the bestselling author of Don’t Know Much About® History and other books in the Don’t Know Much About® series. For more than 3o years, Kenneth C. Davis has proven that Americans don’t hate history — just the dull version they slept through in class. Davis’s approach is to refresh us on the subjects we should have learned in school. He does it by busting myths, setting the record straight, and making history human.
