Looks really cool, actually. I was a bit worried when he started by telling all of his failures and non-desire to write for elementary students, but I really like the way he combines science & history in a logical way. If I weren't already using Apologia, I might consider this one.
Yep... if didn't already purchase Apologia, I'd give this a go.
ETA: After thinking it through and rereading the description, I have one bit of trepidation that would mean I'd need to see the curriculum before using it. I kind of get the idea through his description that kids won't learn what's right until they get to the lesson where the scientist got it right. He talks about Vesalius getting anatomy all wrong. Well, the way his description reads, it sounds like the kids won't know it was all wrong until they read about the guy who finally got it right. I'm sure that's not the case, but the description sure does make it sound that way.
