Editorial Reviews

Review

"Take a minute to consider a gift that hasnÂ’t gone out of style in more than 200 years." -- Wall Street Journal

"Who needs play-stations when you can give the kids Thomas Jefferson?" --Independent (U.K.)

From AudioFile

The Declaration of Independence gets a stirring reading from Frank Langella, one that brings alive all the emotions our Founding Fathers must have felt when breaking free of England. Boyd Gainess reading of the Constitution doesnt fare as well, despite his efforts to give it a thoughtful reading that gives listeners plenty of time to ponder its points. It sounds like Gaines is reading a document that just wasnt meant to be read aloud. While important, the passage on the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court is almost guaranteed to bring yawns. At 48 minutes, the disc falls short of the hour promised on the package.

Very well organized book. Active table of contents has links to all articles and amendments. The book also has historical information and interpretation of each article.

Format: Paperback
What's to say? It's the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights and subsequent amendments, in their original forms. The only adjustment is that portions of the Constitution and amendments changed by subsequent amendments are bracketed and footnoted to indicate which amendment changed them. (So, for example, the Eighteenth Amendment [instituting Prohibition] is bracketed and noted as repealed by the Twenty-First Amendment. Have you ever noticed the alcoholic beverage amendments were 18 and 21? Quite the handy coincidence!) This is an excellent portable version of the original, unmodified text of these foundational documents.

This booklet also includes a brief preface by Roger Pilon of the inestimable Cato Institute, which publishes this booklet. The preface lays out some of the historical background for the Declaration and Constitution, and it discusses their aims and goals. (I wish the preface had also discussed the context and purpose of the Fourteenth Amendment, given how fundamentally it altered our constitutional structure. Given a desire to keep the preface short, and the complexity of the topic, this absence is understandable. But it's still unfortunate.) Not surprisingly given its Cato provenance, the narrative presented is one of a broadly libertarian, limited government of enumerated powers. In any case it's easily ignored by the reader who disagrees with it, and it doesn't make this edition any less useful than any of the other pocket Constitutions out there.

Disappointed with the size. It is advertised as pocket sized...a guy would have to have an awfully big pocket to carry this in....

While the official Amazon title of this book does not say "pocket sized," I figured this would help for clarification.
I wanted a pocket sized Constitution, but instead I got a book sized one. No thanks. Not worth all the hassle of returning, so I'm going to buy one that's actually pocket sized.

That's the only problem I had with it; the contents are superb!

If your a Prepper of any kind, you must have a copy of the Constitution on Hand, & if you have a BOB or Bug out Bag, this compact copy is an excellent choice to have as it's takes up very little room.
