Zinn was a great thinker but very dry to read. Found that out in my AP US class- we sometimes used "A People's History" as an in-class text.I preferred Paul Johnson. No, not the football coach, the British historian. More fun to read, gave an interesting perspective on American history by a foreigner, and he was a conservative compared to the liberal Zinn. Nothing wrong with that, just I lean towards the conservative side myself.
Oh, forgot to mention I was very sad when I read of his passing. I prayed that night. He was a very good man.
