Timothy Sandefur's insightful book provides a dramatic new challenge to the status quo of constitutional law and argues a vital truth: our Constitution was written not to empower democracy, but to secure liberty.

Alcohol and fitness don't mix, or do they? I tackle a question that many people have asked me. Alcohol can be a large part of our lives, and we need to know where to set it in priority to our training routine. I have been there - going out for a night on the town, and then forcing myself out of bed early in the morning to train heavy. Too bad I was doing more harm than good.
