Annotations bring the constitution to life

The stories from our past and quotes from interesting people in each time period really made reading the constitution fun and insightful. I highly recommend this book if you want to learn the constitution directly by reading it, but you want secondary sources to help make sense of it and bring it to life.

Worth the Money

This is a real nice book about our nation's constitution. Explains line by line what the constitution means in laymen's terms. Along the way it site's examples throughout our country's history that relate to the particular lines being discussed. You'll especially like this book if you enjoy American History, because of all the side-stories added concerning the constitution.
I recommend this book to anyone wanting a better understanding of our constitution.
