The most important political document ever created. Unfortunatly it is not as widely read as it should be. Our (USA) government has gone wildly past its oritional scope. More people should read the actual constitution to understand how simple government was meant to be. For example Article 1 sect...more

Somehow I don't look at this as a "book" it's more of a document. But I do wish every American would read it. Get through the construction parts, see what's been changed over the life of our country by reading the amendments (the shameful attempt to allow slavery, the repudiation of slavery. the...more

I wanted to find some stuff I didn't know but this version excluded ammendments. I want to read the full version some day. I like knowing my constitutional rights but I didn't find anything I didn't know in this original version. The version lays out the original plan of government. I learned we...more
