With all due respect to some of the other reviewers, this book doesn't claim to give "insight" into the Constitution. Rather, it's the Constitution itself, bundled into a nice little hard-cover book. For what it does (and what it claims to do), this book deserves 5 stars - after all, the writing is excellent and I agree with everything in it. :)

I keep one on my desk at work. The Constitution is so important that I want to make it available to everyone. It's small in size, so it doesn't take up unnecessary room. This little book should be required reading in our nation's gradeschools.

this book is perfect for someone who wants a copy of the document that shaped a nation. This book is perfect for a spot in a personal library or reference use in a Constituional Law class. It does not offer additional information, but gives you a beautiful copy of the document.

Format: Hardcover
It will take you less than an hour of even very careful reading to go through this entire book -- no commentary, no footnotes, no "constructions." This is the real thing. It sits right on my desk in the office, speaking volumes by its mere presence. Whenever one hears or reads some "pundit" (God, aren't there just way too many of them?)opining about somebody's (or some group's, more likely) CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS, it is instructive to see whether a source for such "rights" can be found in the document itself. It won't surprise most that such a search is rarely fruitful. But in any event, this should be a must (re-)read for all Americans. Besides, it is very well written ...

For any American remotely interested in trying to find their origins, this is a must read. To read the foundation of American Government without commentary is simply something that all Americans owe themselves to do.

Format: Hardcover
I just recently purchased this book for the soul fact that it is a very nice copy of the US Constitution and it does not contain any interpretations or author comments. I think what other reviewers have said are both good and bad. Every American should read the Constitution with a open mind, free of the the interpretations of others, So that the reader can form his or her own opinion. However I suggest the reader take the time to read the Declaration of Independence, which can reflect the motives behind the document.

Just a historic note, the Constitution, while overseen by some of the founding fathers, Ben Frankin, was written at the 1787 Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. Thomas Jefferson and John Adams where both overseas and the people who did sign the constitution where called the Framers (not the "farmers", though it is of political interest, given that the agricultural industry was thriving, that only one framer was a farmer).

So I hope that if you purchase this book you take the time to read the text of one of our nations literary treasures and form your own opinions. In this reviewers opinion, I would recommend the reader pay attention to the system of checks and balances. Enjoy and I hope this helped you.

Don't complain for another second unless you know the heart of what's in this little book. Know it, use it, and write your representatives and president with it in mind. Because quite obviously, some of them *don't* know it. And I include Democrats in that statement; this isn't about parties, it's about America and what many of us as citizens have forgotten. Turn off your d@mn television, pick this book up and learn it before no one remembers what to fight for anymore.
