The author begins by deriding the average history teacher as being dull and perhaps not trained in the discipline of teaching or history. He goes on to manifest good writing (Good education?). So ends his implied effort at presenting history in an interesting and truthful manner. In a classroom, this "teacher" would drive crazy most students.
The format is Q&A, e.g., What is the Bill of Rights? The answers go into boring details that are difficult to imagine as being enlightening to anyone. Davis has not earned the authority to criticize the teaching style of anyone.
As with the majority of formal teaching, Davis' book (the first few chapters anyway) makes no allusion to anything practical (not that difficult, even within the subject of history); nor is any real effort put towards overviews, concomitant activities throughout the world, etc.
