I was first introduced to this book while attending law school. During my Constitutional law classes a professor recomended this little pocket book that reviewed and outlined the constitution. I was amazed then and continue to be delighted with the the historical developments that are shared in this "quick read". For under three dollars I actually learned more on the constitution than I did with texts that cost several hundreds of dollars each. ***** Five Stars, this is a real keeper.

This pocket-sized volume is a perfect jewel for all citizens from grade school on up. I stumbled across it after I lost the first pocket-sized Constitution I was given in high school. Although less than 100 pages from cover to cover, this book contains so much valuable information on the founding of the country, including facts on many of those who guided the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. The book also contains the Decleration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation and key dates and Supreme Court cases that have shaped this country and the Constitution's interpretation.
This book is a keeper for all who cherish our freedom and should be read and re-read as a reminder of why this is a great country and why it prospered in relatively short order.

"How many people realize that the first president of the United States was not George Washington but a man named John Hanson?
How many know that the state of Pennsylvania was misspelled as "Pensylvania" on the U.S. Constitution? And who knew that in 1876 an amendment to the Constitution was introduced that would have abolished the U.S. Senate? Or that another amendment, proposed in 1893, would have renamed the country the United States of the Earth?
All of these fun and little-known facts can be found in a pocket size guide to the constitution entitled "The U.S. Constitution and Fascinating Facts About It."
I found this wording on the web site for the book at ...and it is the best way for me to tell readers why I thought this book was excellent. The book is interesting and fast reading, and you learn a lot of fun and intersting facts along the way. I can't say enough good things about the book and the author!

That's the only word that can possibly come out of one's mouth when you get a load of this book. This book is something that should be used as a reference in every home! There is a copy of the entire Constitution, Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation, heck, what more could you ask for? Facts? You ask for facts? Hey, there are awesome facts, good to know facts, and just for the fun of it facts, too! Like, in 1878, an amendment stating that an executive council of three should replace the president tried to get passed! For only a few bucks, I'm very glad I purchased this book because I love it and use it all the time.

This book is fast becoming one of my main resources for classes in school. It puts all of the things that I needed for the classes in an easy to carry book. It is extremely handy to have compared to a textbook! Great Job!

This book is a great for any student taking American history or someone who just wants to have it around the house. It has a copies of all the important documents in our nation's history. It includes lists tons of quotes about both democracy and "the system" and is both informative and humorous. (And besides, it's only a few bucks, so what the heck, right?)

This is a great book. It covers the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation and the US Constitution as well as an abundance of interesting facts about the Framers of the Constitution.

The book is compact and students can easily carry it with them everywhere they go. This book is also very affordable.

There is a problem with this book's binding though. The book tends to come apart. The book's good for students, but since the Constitution is so important, I would give students a hardback when they graduate which they can have in their personal library for the rest of their lives.

You can't really write a review about the Constitution! But I can tell you that this little book is not too difficult on the eyes, easy to use and simple for carrying to class. It doesn't weigh much in a pocket or a backpack, and this is the version I've used throughout my grad-school days. And after several years of thumbing through it, the book still hasn't fallen apart!
