“A Century Turns” is a book about the historical events over the last 20 years. This book, by William J Bennett, talks about the changes in politics, economics, war, and other facets that transformed America. If you enjoy a good history book, this book is for you. Everything is discussed—from the 1988 election to the 2008 Presidential Race.
I was hooked on this book from the very beginning. Bennett’s writing style makes for an easy read, but his subjects keep you interested. He is very knowledgeable about the multifaceted events of what is going on. Reading about the true events that have occurred in the last 20 years brought back many emotions. The terrorist bombing of Pan Am Flight 103, the Oklahoma City bombing, and the OJ Simpson car chase are just a few events discussed. If you want to read more about Bill Clinton, George W Bush Sr. and Jr., and President Barack Obama this is the book to read!
