5.0 out of 5 stars quick, informative, and well done., July 28, 2011
This review is from: Signing Their Rights Away (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book gives you a 2-3 page biography of the original signers of the Constitution with a focus on the rumors or tabloid aspects of their lives. It doesn't go that in depth however, you only get 2-3 pages (Except for George Washington who of course gets a couple additional pages). But that seems to be enough for this delighful light read. If any of the characters within interest you enough you can hunt down a more detailed biography.
The book comes with a complete copy of the Constitution and some additional facts at the back of the book.
This book is not really for serious history fans but again it was an entertaining read but I would not repeat anything I read as a fact with out further investigating.
The only unintending problem with books like this is that many people will read this and only this concerning these men and declare themselves experts and repeat everything they read here (distorting even this over time) making a nuisance of themselves...much like History Channel viewers.

How do History Channel viewers make a nuisance of themselves? By delving lightly into subjects, piquing their interest and sharing it with others, instigating discussions of historical interest with children, furthering the in depth study of people and events that have added to our culture and understanding?

Dear George,
If the history channel has inspired you to learn more and share knowledge than my comment does not apply to you. But most people do not bother to learn anything more than what they just saw and then instantly mix up what little knowledge they have just gained with the up coming episode of 'Ancient Aliens', 'Nostradamos Unraveled', or the always historically apt 'Ice Road Truckers'.
The history channel has become a joke that now and then shows something pertanent to history but mostly vomits up end of the world programs and alien conspiracies. Besides most of the people I've met as of late who watch it regularly stand by what the history channel has shown them as solid fact with nothing else to support it and will vigorously argue their unsubstantiated drivel as undisputable fact.
The history channel exists to entertain and unfortunatly plain history today is a hard sell.

Dear George and Brett,

I can empathize and agree with both of your sentiments and concerns and comments.

The only caveat I have is: prior to History Channel's transmutation into the current "thing" that it is, I would disagree with what you said about the H.C. in your follow-up comment, Brett. But, being that what it IS today is accurately described, I have no problem with your comments.

I was just talking about the demise and fall of these things this past weekend with a family member. So sad.

R.I.P. these:

History Channel,
Discovery Channel,
TLC - The Learning Channel,
National Geographic (Channel),
Science Channel,
etc.
