    Don't know if anyone's ever seen/heard of this book. It is a step by step guide to the Constitution. The author, Linda Monk, explains every clause and every amendment, describing the history behind the words, their ramifications, and relevant Supreme Court decisions.
    A thorough book, though it reads like a high school/college textbook in places. But for anyone wanting a fairly unbiased book about the Constitution, certainly recommended.

    3 1/2 out of 5 stars.

    I have it on my desk at school. She was a guest lecture at a Constitution seminar I took a couple years back. Excellent speaker and writer.
