Stories aren't too long and cover all the hard facts. Interesting reads!

A very fascinating book about America's most popular (and some of the least known) scandals. A good, but quick read.

It is biased politically, however. An obvious left- wing author.

All in all, I give it and 3.5 out of 5.

Great YA nonfiction book for finding out the scoop and repercussions of the biggest, juiciest stories and events in America starting in 1906 through 2000 with reasons for, "Why We Still Care."

Fascinating snipets about various scandals in American history. It covers sports figures, politicians, actors and other celebrities. Most of the events are pretty well known but the book does provide information about the aftermath and what changed because of each event. A fun book to pick up to expand your cocktail party repetoire.
