The Constitution

This booklet helps explain our founding documents. Everyone in the US should read it.

A simple but great intro tour through the Constutution.

This is a nuts and bolts introductory book on the Constitution. It definately dosn't analyze anything to any degree whatsoever, but if your looking for that there are plenty of other books to consider. This is one to start with. I liken it to a foreign language text where you get A LOT of instantaneous feedback in the manner of quizes and fill in the blank questions. Thats the best part of the book. It somewhat forces you to remember (at least once) the prime points by asking you about what youve just read.

Read it often

About a year ago, I saw a movie called The Revolution Will Not Be Televised. The movie is about President Chavez in Venezuela and the failed coup attempt on his presidency. In the background coverage of his presidency, the filmmakers recounted how as President, he encouraged his citizens to read their brand new constitution and learn it. They interviewed some Venezuelans who did not know to read, but had learned to read by reading their constitution. I was touched by this, but then I thought "how many Americans can say they've read the Constitution?" My guess is probably not many. And those that have only did it for school and have since forgotten much of what they learned. Personally, I remember having to memorize the Bill of Rights for a class, but that's about it. So I bought a copy of the Constitution for myself and began reading it. In a time when Congress is passing legislation that infringes upon the rights guaranteed us by our Constitution, it's important now more than ever that we read and understand it.

Good for starters

A very simple edition, it was exactly what I wanted and needed to take a first look at the USA Constitution, cost-effective.
