With a country large and varied as the United States there likely will never be a definitive single-volume history. With These Truths Lepore gives us a largely political history though one informed by the many insights produced by changes in historical methodology over the last few decades. Lepore is always a joy to read. She keeps this book lively and entertaining by focusing on individual lives involved in some of the key dramas that illuminate the how and why of our past.

Need a little laugh therapy? Lewis wrote The Big Short, Moneyball, and now the highly praised, The Fifth Risk. I did not know he had written about his journey into being a father. If this topic applies to or interests you in the least, there are laugh out loud moments awaiting you.
