Review: Ed Asner releases witty new book ‘The Grouchy Historian’ (Includes first-hand account)

He co-wrote this book with Ed. Weinberger. It is well-written, enlightening, well-researched (with facts that are food for thought) and it’s easy to read, where one can finish in two or three sittings; moreover, it is a candid discussion about our Founding Fathers, and great to see it interpreted by one of the finest actors of our generation: Mr. Asner, who is known for his starring role as Lou Grant in the Mary Tyler Moore Show and Lou Grant.

The Verdict

Overall, Mr. Asner’s book is entertaining, informative, witty and clever. He holds nothing back. It will make one wish that Asner was their high school Social Studies teacher. Asner and Ed. Weinberger did a superb job writing it, and the book will certainly strike a chord with their readers. There is something in it for everybody, especially anybody interested in learning about more the U.S. Constitution, and this book is highly recommended for all to read. The Grouchy Historian garners an A rating.
