Publisher's Summary

David O. Stewart presents this well-researched account of the U.S. Constitution's creation not as a dry analysis of events, but as a high-powered narrative filled with dramatic intensity and larger-than-life historical figures.

Makes you feel like you were there

An excellent story. If you've ever wondered how the Founding Fathers put together the Constitution of the United States, this book is an excellent way to learn about it. Not too many details as to become boring, but enough interesting facts to keep your attention.

Very well done!

This book dives into the struggles our founding fathers faced when authoring our Constitution. It covers the battles between big states, small states, struggle over slavery, state and federal government roles and limitations.
For those who now criticize our founding fathers because of some of their views....it would be well worth the time in order to get an honest look at their struggles.

A wonderful true story, told with passion.

More detail and reasoning than I've heard this history repeated. Verbal drama at its best.

Good book

I do recommend this book, although I would have liked it to have been a little more detailed. It is still a good account of the convention.
