Just to correct the previous critiques.

The person on the cover of this book is George Washington, not Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson looked NOTHING like that! Nor did Madison, Adams or Hamilton! Note the characteristic set of the jaw....

As to the suggestion that the Amazon description implies that Jefferson composed the Constitution: as I understand the language, they are saying that when Jefferson was President - he caused (produced) copies of the Constitution to be made available, in something like this format.

This is fine little booklet at a great price. And while I like the looks and size of the classic little red CATO Institute book, this one is actually much easier to open and to read. It has better page margins and slightly larger type. And it's also slightly thinner for slipping into a pocket.

This is the type of Product that is usually rated based upon the quality of the Book itself rather than its contents, because the Contents, whether you agree with them or not, are a part of Cultural Heritage and History. It makes little sense to rate the Constitution itself, for most Americans would gladly give it Five Stars, all based upon Romantic Notions and Sentimentality. This document above all else defines what it means to be an American, and is thus awarded a sort of reverence few other Texts can rival. On this alone it will be Rated highly. Others who dislike it strongly enough to give it One Star will usually have equally Political or Cultural Motives behind such a Review.

It doesn't matter, though, as this is a Historical and Cultural Document, and is still the Supreme Law of the United States of America as a Federal Union, so Irrespective of how you feel about the Document, its important and should be read, especially if you are an American.

So I'll review the actual Physical Book instead.

It has a thin, lightweight paper cover, which is both advantageous to it and a Drawback. It makes it light weight and easy to open, but isn't Durable and would bend easily in a pocket, or over repeated use. The book itself is just Stapled together, but as its mainly a sort of Pamphlet this is not a Criticism. Still, this Pocket Constitution will not stand up to vigorous Wear and tear but is Easy to Read. The Picture on the Front showing (I may be wrong) George Washington is also lively.

The paper itself, though, it firm and sturdy, and a nice resin to make it Endure. The Print Quality is also sharp and well defined, making it easy to read, though the Font Size is smaller than usual to forewarn.

Very well done pocket version of the Declaration of Independence and United States Constitution. Great size and very convenient. A great companion book is: The 5000 Year Leap: A Miracle That Changed the World

As the other reviewer notes, Thomas Jefferson was involved with the Declaration of Independence. The painting has the Declaration of Independence on top of the Constitution. It was the Declaration that was authored and signed by Thomas Jefferson and he is holding the quill. The Declaration is included in the booklet.

This booklet has a similar area where you can pledge and sign to uphold these similar principles of liberty.

The only knock that I have is that it's not really "pocket sized" in that it is 6.3 inches high. Granted, that could probably fit ok in the inside pocket on a sports coat or something, but as far as going in a dress shirt pocket, the one published by the Cato Institute The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of Americais much better.

But again, for $1.50 it's a value you can't beat. I should probably buy a copy to mail to my Congressmen since they have all apparently lost track of their own version.

I was inspired to grab a copy of the Constitution after watching Constitution USA With Peter Sagal (which I also highly recommend). I realized that I couldn't remember the last time I read the full text. And while I'm not encountering Constitutional debates on a regular basis, it is quite interesting to read the text rather than just hearing the hype.

This edition has great annotations on the elements of the original text that have been changed by the amendments. There are also some extra material that may or may not be of much interest.
