On This Day in History Sh!t Went Down. In fact, on every day in history something happened, though a lot of it was pretty boring. Once you look up everyone’s birthday, I don’t see the value of this book. The entries don’t link together into some overarching story. You can get the same “just the facts ma’am” information from Wikipedia. It might be useful in libraries, I guess. But for general readers, it gets 2 stars.
Thanks to Bantam and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
