This version is well worth buying and reading, and reading again. In addition to the text of the original documents, it offers excellent historical context including a discussion of how the various articles and amendments have been interpreted by courts (not ideologues) through the years. It's a very valuable resource.
UPDATE: In a comment to this review, RedRocks explains that if you try to order the paperback version of this Penguin guide, you'll actually get the Skousen/LDS version instead. (My brother confirmed this.) Kindle orders get the correct Penguin version. Amazon needs to correct this - RedRocks has complained about it before but Amazon has done nothing.
Apparently, Amazon lumps together the reviews written for various print versions of the US Constitution. All print versions are not equal and many of the Amazon reviews do not apply to the print version I reviewed. The print version I reviewed has a painting of George Washington, quill pen in hand, on the front cover. It is copyrighted by the National Center for Constitutional Studies. Accept no substitutes.
For a buck.
Pretty Nice, indeed!
To those customers who reported their copies had a preface or commentary suggesting how we interpret this document: This edition has neither commentary nor suggested interpretations - just the declaration that it was "... proofed word for word against the original ...".
FYI, the ISBN for this publication is is 978-0-88080-144-7.
I am buying more copies as gifts for children & grandchildren.
The Bill of Rights adds the extremely important amendments that protect freedom of religion, speech, gun rights, etc.. I was stunned when I realized it was missing. Very disappointing!
