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.
It is... imperative, therefore, that we should become familiar with these two philosophical pillars of political freedom. This book puts these heavenly banners and glorious standards into your hand-the truth is at your fingertips--to check up on the politicians. If they do anything crooked, keep in mind that it is our fault for not being aware and active in stopping them.
Don't be intimidated by the language. There is an old saying that Plato is easier to understand the Platonists. The original documents are easier to understand than the snake twisting that many lawyers and fanatics put to the documents. You asre smart enough to decide for yourself.
A couple of negatives: 1) the publisher uses a very large font for the titles, thereby forcing the kindle to be adjusted for the body text and being overwhelmed by the title, or setting the titles to an appropriate size and squinting at the body text, 2) each section is treated so separately that it gets a page break at its end, thereby stifling the flow of the document. Still - these are small points and relate to presentation, not content. There are free versions for the kindle, but the inclusion of the table of contents and the hyperlinks makes the small price paid a very good value. e-Book publication quality, ★★★★☆
