Publisher's summary

Have you ever wanted to read the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, and really understand what they're saying?

Millions of others have, too. But getting a real understanding of the legal language of 200 years ago can be challenging - and as a result, few Americans know these important documents as well as they should. Recognizing this, Paul Skousen has written exactly the book you've been looking for.

It's an easy step-by-step guide that makes these documents come alive. With his help, you will be able to read them with purpose, with understanding, and with clarity.

Skousen provides several valuable memory aids for you to master the Constitution's seven Articles and the 27 important rights named in the Bill of Rights. You will be able to navigate through the Declaration's five power statements on freedom and unlock their 18th century phrases with a convenient glossary. You will find the answers to 10 popular myths about the Constitution, and discover how its guiding principles protect human rights.

Thousands of books describe the origins of these famous documents, but only one audiobook gives you a place to start reading them made easier in How to Read the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.
