On the Social Contract's appeal and influence has been wide-ranging and continuous. It has been called an encomium to democracy and, at the same time, a blueprint for totalitarianism. Individualists, collectivists, anarchists, and socialists have all taken courage from Rousseau's controversial masterpiece.

It's easy to see why the founding fathers or inspired by this book. It provides a solid foundation on the rights and responsibilities of the citizens of a state.
Interesting to understand the philosophy.
A pretty dry read on the narrators part but clearly understood.
Sounds naive in 21st century, but if you factor in when it was written! It's a monumental work form the first letter to the end.
