Lies They Teach in School
Exposing the Myths Behind 250 Commonly Believed FallacieseBook - 2012
It is a cliché that history is written by the victors, but what we accept as history is replete with stories of great men and events that either never happened or didn't happen the way we were told they did. Such items are taught in schools. They are passed down to us by our families and friends and have become part of our shared cultural knowledge. And they are wrong. Touching on a number of topics- including history, current events, government, sports, geography, and popular culture-Lies They Teach in School exposes errors that have been perpetuated for far too long. It will enlighten and entertain. It will certainly start a number of arguments, and settle a few others.
