Love the narrator. She is one of the best aspects of this series.
Many aspects of this I loved – Teddy Roosevelt, the Wright Brothers, the lead up to World War I. My 12 year old son would give this an unqualified highest rating. He found this period of history very interesting, in part due to Hakim’s engaging presentation.
My only reservation is the trouble I have with Hakim interjecting her modern perspective on the historical events. I’m not sure why this is more grating to me on the later installments. My son has no problem with it – and he is the intended audience.

I wouldn't recommend this book to someone familiar with the era, or someone seeking an in-depth treatment. But I think it would work well as an introduction for an intelligent 12-15 year old reader.
