    The United States Constitution promised a "More Perfect Union". It’s a shame no one bothered to write a more perfect Constitution - one that didn’t trigger more than two centuries of arguments about what the darn thing actually says. Until now. Perfection is at hand. A new, improved Constitution is here. And you are about to listen to it. So prepare yourselves, fellow patriots, for the most significant literary event of the 21st, 20th, 19th, and latter part of the 18th centuries. Me the People is about to save America.

    Fifty-One says: "Skip it."
    "What a great, funny and educational book."

    Where does Me the People rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It ranks in the top five of the government/history books I've listened too.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Me the People?

    When one of the delegates gets sauced rants for hours until he is exhausted, demands he be allowed to pick up where he leaves off in the morning then walks out of the convention.


    What about Kevin Bleyer’s performance did you like?

    Kevin Bleyer was very entertaining in his reading.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yep!


    Any additional comments?

    What I took away from this book is how essential cooperation and compromise was in forming our government. I think those of us who love government and politics have at some point in time invoked the names of some founding father or other in hopes it would win us an argument. It seems though, that on their own each of these men were flawed in very serious ways, not so much that they were bad men or unfit for the roles they played. But, enough that if any one of them were to have written our constitution alone I don't believe it would have stood for so long. Don't get me wrong though, I learned all this while laughing my tail off. Great book, give it a listen
