There has been much talk of restoring the republic, and following the Constitution. Reading this book is the blue print of our working government. The explanations of what each section means is well written and easy to understand. The reader will be more informed of what it means to be American. S/he will also understand how far we have gone away from the Constitution in today's modern government. Decide for yourself. Read this book.

Too few Americans understand what their constitutional rights are and have no fear of these precious liberties being eroded. This little book goes a long way in teaching the basics of this founding document. It should be given to every student in the USA.

Makes the Constitution easy to understand. Wish I would have had it in high school. The framers would be impressed.

I found this pcoket guide very useful and handy when traying to recall the segments of the US Constitution. It is handy to have during discussions when you need the correct wording of the articles.

Format: Paperback
This book is more than just the text of the constitution. It provides a good explanation of what the various sections and amendments really mean. You can get the text of the constitution in many places but a side by side explanation on how it has been interpreted and amended is where this book separates itself from others at this price.

I had heard that Senator Byrd of W. Virginia kept a copy of the US Constitution in his pocket. I was not sure where to get one also. I found it here at Amazon, and for a good price as well. I use to show what is actually written, if someone is in doubt. And it gives a nice, brief explanation of the meanings behind the words. I am getting a copy for all of my grown children. A very good edition.

This is my pocket secular bible. It fits in my suit pocket, pants pocket, laptop case, Black Berry's case, brief case, and just about anywhere. It is a great reference tool whenever someone misquotes any parts of my secular bible.
