About the Author
Judge Andrew P. Napolitano is Fox News Channel's senior judicial analyst, currently seen by millions of viewers weeknights on The Big Story and The O'Reilly Factor. Napolitano is the youngest person in New Jersey history to receive a lifetime judgeship. He is bright (graduate of Princeton and Notre Dame Law School), articulate (four times voted most outstanding professor at the two law schools at which he taught), and broadcast-experienced (as a daily fixture on Fox News Channel since 1998). He is the author of Constitutional Chaos and The Constitution In Exile.

The contents are, in Judge Napolitano's consistent style, direct and to the point, concise and simple yet comprehensive. He begins with short introductory chapters on "Constitutional Basics", and "Natural Rights vs Positivism - balancing state with federal government", and then spends a bit more time on "The Declaration of Independence and our Founding Fathers - how far we have strayed". The bulk of the book is next with "Rights and Freedoms that are being violated", covered in 14 parts (such as "the right to own property"), in a Q & A format. Finally he sums it all up with a conclusion and gives an appendix of the text of the Constitution and it's Amendments.
The introductory chapters are an essential review of basic history which sadly most American's seem ignorant of these days. The section on the rights and freedoms being violated is a great collection of specific issues that are at the heart of both American history and current events and controversies. There are plenty of specific examples, dates, cases and anecdotes sited to support his insider's perspective. And Judge is a remarkable independent-minded advocate for this subject which is obviously his life-long passion. I can't imagine a better person to write this book!
All in all this book is a very high quality and carefully done production, and makes a fine copy to have for easy reference in one's own library, and as a great timeless gift for all occasions. It may also make you angry, and will probably inspire you to be part of the growing liberty movement in whatever way you can....
Almost rated this 4 stars because answers are so brief i.e. not deep/detailed enough.
Then realized that is the very purpose of this li'l answer-book: Quick answers; Accurate answers.
To that end, I am not aware of any other book that performs this function as well.
Also: smaller than a 5x7 photo. Fits easily in the hand, backpack, larger purse.
Due to recent human events (and being a father), becoming a student of ACCURATE history is a non-negotiable.
This li'l book has been indispensable; both as a quick/concise review for myself in assembling the puzzle pieces of a 10+ year study, and as a quick/concise reference to help others unacquainted with or just entering in to their own quest for actual understanding of this word that is so/too freely tossed about: Freedom.
The subtitle is - much to our horror - exactly true.
It is my experience that folks are NOT apathetic; they are ignorant - in the true sense of the word - they simply don't know what freedom is - or that they even have it to lose in the 1st place.
(I didn't know. I didn't know any of this - despite "honors" courses... )
So why would they respond with alarm - let alone investigate, assess, & resolve - over such a critical issue they are not aware of - let alone being robbed of.
Wether by default or by design, this MUST change.
- or we lose... by virtue of just never having shown up for the battle.
This book will help.
As an "appetizer", a catalyst, an instigator, a reference.
"... For ourselves and our posterity... " and/or for those you meet who are questioning or simply unaware.
