An important piece of the story of the American Revolution
|Thomas Paine (1737-1809)|
The entire text of Common Sense (originally just 46 pages long, thus the title) is added as an appendix at the end of the book. I read the original text first and then proceeded to the first part of the book which consists of a short and pleasant combination of a biography of Paine, a history of Common Sense and little snippets of what several founders thought of the pamphlet at its author.
This is a solid addition to any American history buff's collection.
I rate this book 5 stars out of 5.
This book can be found on Amazon.com here: 46 Pages.
