If you ever wanted to clearly understand what really occurred when the Founding Fathers met in Philadelphia, this is the book for you. I was not too enthralled by the first few pages of the narrator's voice, but as time passed, I began to like the pace, and lack of enthusiasm in his voice. This is the seminal work for looking deep into the hearts and minds of the authors of the US Constitution.
Much like Goodwin's Team of Rivals, this sweeping work has extensive source materials and uses these source materials to support the finding and lives of these very distinct men. Beeman also carries you back to what the city was like in the late 1700's, thrusting the reader into the time period whether you want to go or not. George Washington's presence at the beginning of the book signals what is about to come!
I encourage those whose tastes move in early American historical fact, this is the book for you. It is comprehensive in scope and answers those questions that you did not think to ask!

I am not a history buff in the least, however, my husband is and when we listen to books together, I select some that might interest him. This book was pretty interesting and did a nice job of telling what happened in developing the important documents and the key players involved in the process. It was interesting and enlightening to me and had a few tidbits my husband didn't know. I did finally speed up the narration as it was a bit slow on the third download part.
