Im going to give you my take on the book 46 pages by Scott Liell. This book was first copyrighted in 2003. This book is general consensuses of how Scoot Liell viewed Thomas Paine’s writing of Common Sense and the Turning point to Independence and how they effected the colony’s.

In conclusion 46 Pages was not like any other history book I have ever read it took a little while to get into but it doesn’t read like a history book more like a story. Lille directs his work at the general history reading individuals, in doing so creates a novel just for them. His work is short and to the point he doesn’t use big words that will confuse you he just makes the story flow. Overall this was a good read a well written book that teaches you about Common Sense a ground breaking book that altered history indefinitely. I grew up in the United States, I have always been taught that the American Revolution was the throwing off the King’s
