3.0 out of 5 stars Navigation ok, but not great. January 4, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As this is a review for a Kindle book, I think the most important review is how easy it is to navigate.

The book actually contains the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation and the Constitution with amendments. The 'Independance' typo noted in a separate review appears to have been corrected and I did not find any occurrence of the misspelling when I searched for it.

From the Kindle menu, the 'Table of Contents' is not available. You can only go to the cover, beginning or a specific location.

When the book first opens, it goes to the first page of the Declaration of Independence. In my view, it should start on the cover or the contents page. There is a Table of Contents page and if you turn back one page from the Declaration, you come to the contents page.

On 'goto' the 'cover', it takes you to the Cover page. The Cover page is simply text listing the contents and the actual links for the Table of Contents are on the next page, which is fine. It seems to me that it would be more efficient to combine the Cover page and Table of Contents into a single page, but this is not the case.

On 'goto' the 'beginning', it takes you to the first page of the Declaration of Independence. This would probably be fine if the 'table of contents' link in the 'goto' section worked, but it doesn't, so there is no obvious way to get to the Table of Contents.

There are no further sub-links for the Declaration of Independence, which is workable as it is relatively short and has no subsections. Fortunately, both the Articles of Confederation and the Constitution each have links from the first page to each of the main sections in the respective document.

5.0 out of 5 stars Durable Desk-top Edition April 13, 2010
By Woodcdi
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As for the content, what can anyone say about the Founding Fathers than what the Constitution they wrote and enacted ensured for us!

The book itself is the desk-top version of a pocket edition except built for page turning and margin notes. I penciled in the content at the top of each page to quicken my research.

Buy it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Constitution including amendments March 5, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Not a bad book with founding documents. I could not find any of the amendments to the constitution either within the text of the constitution, or separately. This would be good for a general reference, but without the complete constitution the value is diminutive. I would rate everything else at least 4 stars.

I did not see this complaint in any of the other reviews. If I had known that my copy would have omitted the amendments, I would not have purchased this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Familiarizing Myself Again September 27, 2009
Verified Purchase
I have recently left the Republican party and joined the Constitutional Party in hopes that a better tomorrow can be found for our government. I needed to remember "whereof I speak" so purchased this very good, concise issue that fits well into my briefcase. As a middle school teacher, I want to be ready with the truth, and not the tripe printed in the textbooks.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Eye Opener August 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It makes me realize that the very same things that caused us to seek independence from England are happening again in this country. This current administration doesn't recognize the Constitution because they are too busy wiping their feet on it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice piece November 16, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very happy with the overall presentation. No anti-american discalimer. The only thing I wish they had done, is put a heading over the pages to show when you were looking at the constitution, declaration, resolutions, etc. This would allow you to find these other works faster.
