Still Haven’t Read TAXES, THE TEA PARTY AND THOSE REVOLTING REBELS? Here’s Some Reviews To Convince You To Read It Right Now…

Media Post ran a fantastic interview with Stan Mack about his book, Taxes, The Tea Party and Those Revolting Rebels, that’s well worth a read.  Here’s what some other folks have been saying.

“A history of the nation’s birth that gets exactly the treatment it needs:  irreverent admiration for the pluck of visionaries, rueful honesty about the founding ideas that still shape our reality.”

– Teacher Librarian

“Accessible, thought -provoking , and highly discussable, this version of how the United States became independent of the British Crown may well inspire readers to see the relevant aspects of studying history as well as reading nonfiction comics.”

– School Library Journal

“An accurate but irreverent retelling of the American Revolution and the events that led up to it. Mack’s colonists talk like real people—with attitude—which helps bring the facts of history down to earth in a way modern readers can relate to.”

– School Library Journal

And finally, a rather conservative look at the book, which is certainly provocative, albeit not particularly accurate.

“Rather than an honest attempt at history, it comes off as a pro-liberal statement, where government corrupts those in charge, and that regular people are easily manipulated.”
