awesome history of exactly what the title advertis
This was an incredibly good analysis of the thoughts and words of the men who wrote the Constitution, the issues debated at the Constitutional Convention, and the views of each of the critical players on the various parts of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, all based on contemporaneous sources.
author is wrong on many constitutional law points
would be great book but author gives annoying erroneous opinions on constitutionality of different things

amazing. exactly what we need to be focusing on
this is exactly what we need to be focusing on right now. This is the stuff that could bring the country together and heal The Great Divide the likes of Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes have created for this country
Awesome!!! A must read/ listen to for any American
This book is written in a format whereby the narrator is newspaper reporter who is reading you his article. The article is a report of the day by day happenings during the Constitutional Convention ( which is a fictitious tool to get a very good chronological story told.) He reports on various things said by the delegates and Reed's various the letters that any members of the Convention sent to anyone else and vice versa, as well as well as various other contemporaneous documents and news articles from other places. The result is an easy-to-understand, very descriptive and detailed, chronological picture of the Constitutional Convention and who said what about the clauses of the Constitution on which they were working at any given moment. The REAL original intent.
