Informative; though I lived through most of the decade anyways, this book included lots of info I'd never read before. My only gripe is that the book placed a heavy emphasis on American politics, and only briefly addressed pop culture music, TV shows, and advertising are addressed only cursorily at the start of each chapter.
Nonetheless, the book made me both miss the "noughties" and thank heaven that they're over. Mar 21, Meggan rated it liked it Shelves: non-fiction , teen.
About the Book
I thought this book did a very good job explaining many of the events that occurred from However, I think it could have spent more time talking about the technological innovations that occurred in this decade. This book mentions them, but it doesn't expand upon them as much as it could have. Oct 17, Edward Sullivan rated it liked it Shelves: young-adult-nonfiction. A very good capsulized chronicle of major events spanning the the first decade of the 21st century, which Sutherland shows was indeed a tumultuous one in many respects.
Further explanation is needed for some apsects of Islam he metions and I take issue with a couple of generalizations. Jan 31, Michelle rated it liked it Shelves: non-fiction.
I detected a slight liberal bias, which was fine with me, but otherwise a pretty good general overview of the important events of the last decade for children.

The Ten-Year Century: Explaining the First Decade of the New Millennium by James B. Sutherland
Bookseller Inventory GI4N Synopsis: Remember worrying about the Y2K bug in ? Or life before Twitter?
Ten years ago, September 11 was just another day, Facebook didn't exist, and Barack Obama was a little-known state senator. Some have called the jam-packed first decade of the new millennium the "ten-year century" for all of the history-making, life-changing developments it's contained. Now, James Sutherland explores these influential years for the audience that's grown up in it, putting history in context and explaining how the world is smaller, faster, and more connected than it's ever been-and why it matters.
