Just finished reading The Practical Guide to The United States Constitution, I wish I could have read this 40 years ago, better yet in government class in high school, 1966. I retired 6 years ago and finally had the time to get educated in the political process and history of this great country. I had to move my library book down to place this one in the top 3 "BEST". This book needs to be in every high school government class as "required" reading to graduate. Its fantastic, factual, easy to read, well organized and spellbinding.
Any time a person can read, have fun and learn something new its a good deal! Buy this book now!
Tom McHale has managed to keep me reading, in short sessions, for the past week until I finished his delightful, lighthearted explanation of the founding documents of our republic. No heavy tome for law school students, The Practical Guide to the United States Constitution is an engaging, fun read... in a civics primer, no less! Well done, Mr. McHale.
I enjoyed this guide of the Constitution. It was easy to read, witty, and gave everyday explanations. While interpretation may be one thing... the actual words are quite simple. Tom did a nice job... I highly recommend this book for for first time diving into the Constitution. Author: Tom McHale Language: EnglishBinding: PaperbackPages: 202Publisher: IPGPublication Date: 2018-12-07
