So...
So a book that explains the theories of Charles Darwin is religious propaganda?

Dude, read.
Will this make up for all those history classes I fell asleep in?

Looked at the sample on Google and it looks very well put-together. Just picked one up to enjoy it on my new Galaxy Tab S7.

I've read this book. I thought it was great. Pretty cool reading about history and have them tell you what's happening halfway around the world at the same time.

How did you use the credits? Clicking on Pay doesn't show me an option to use credits.
