This is as awesome as I knew it would be. All history books drag in some places and this one is no exception because every part didn't interest me. On the whole, however, the information is amazing. He recounts about so many events in the history of the United States in which average people are cheated, abused, mistreated, arrested, and killed by agents of the government or if not the government itself, by others to whom the government turned a blind eye. This is not a book for those "patriots" who pretend that Americans live in a land of equal opportunity. This is the blood and guts rendition that depicts the daily, yearly, decades-and centuries-long struggles of the average person. Don't look for favored status of the rich white men here. This is the tale of the poor, the minority, the female, the marginalized parts of society who have to fight for every single thing and who still usually lose.

I highlighted so many things that were events in US history or comments on the status of some inequality or mistreatment of years ago. The sad thing is that many of those situations or events are so similar to ones today. As the saying goes, the more things change the more they stay the same. ( )

I have heard a lot about this book and the author is clear that he is viewing history from the perspective of the affected people. That means that we are shown history from the eyes of the indigenous peoples of the Americas, the revolutionary and civil wars from the eyes of slaves, the industrial revolution from the view of workers. The book is both frustrating and enlightening. ( )

Frustrating, depressing, excruciating painful and shocking at times... Yup, one of the best histories I've ever read. Definitely leaning on the people's view of history instead of just the winners view. History as it should be taught - and I'm sure every right winner will say how wrong this book is, so you know the book is correct.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
Also, excellent narrator for Audiobook ( )

I do not regret many things in my life, but I do regret the hours I wasted reading this book. Zinn made no attempt to present any bias but his own. I curse the relentless march of time which saw Mr. Zinn dead in 2010, so I cannot write a strongly worded rebuke to him for the black mark he personally delivered to the field of history. I hope he died ashamed of the way he twisted a noble academic field into his own personal bully pulpit. I hope that anyone who reads this will be inspired to read primary sources and counter arguments and to consider the opposite. Mostly I hope that anyone who reads this book does not swallow it whole. I also hope everyone buys it secondhand. ( )

The People's History of the United States is tedious, repetitive, and an overall slog -- a 33+ hour audio book. I learned some things but much of it was boring, just boring...and I like history. It was so boring that I skipped large portions of it's chapters. I almost gave it up and then read some reviews; that changed my mind and I thought there might be a pony in all that horse shit somewhere. The book is especially relevant during this activist spring of 2020, even if written 20 years ago. The multiple stories lean left and liberal.If you're not one of those, read it to broaden your perspective; if you are, you'll absolutely love it. I'm not and it gets two stars--both for perspective--and minus three stars for it's excessive length and obdurate views. ( )

Covering the period from 1492 practically to the present, this illuminating opus overturns many conventional notions, not just about America's treatment of blacks, but about Native Americans, women, and other disenfranchised groups whose perspectives have traditionally been left out of the education equation.

While some multimillionaires started in poverty, most did not. A study of the origins of 303 textile, railroad and steel executives of the 1870s showed that 90 percent came from middle- or upper-class families. The Horatio Alger stories of "rags to riches" were true for a few men, but mostly a myth, and a useful myth for control. — chapter 11
One percent of the nation owns a third of the wealth. The rest of the wealth is distributed in such a way as to turn those in the 99 percent against one another: small property owners against the propertyless, black against white, native-born against foreign-born, intellectuals and professionals against the uneducated and the unskilled. These groups have resented one another and warred against one another with such vehemence and violence as to obscure their common position as sharers of leftovers in a very wealthy country. — chapter 24
Capitalism has always been a failure for the lower classes. It is now beginning to fail for the middle classes. — chapter 24
