Hope of Nations

Posted by greatbuys4less on June 20, 2018 at 12:30 AM Comments comments (0)

John Dickerson offers a lot of research, facts and figures to explain what might or might not happen in the next thrity years and the impacts and what we can do about it.

Probably because I am not a futurist thinker and do...

Size is just right for smaller hands and ages 6-10. Easy to read version. I think it would have been nice to see an introduction a...

The first part was very depressing and it was hard for me to stick with the book due to this. It got better as I read more but I felt weighted by the story.

I did enjoy the “ref...
