    Democracy?

    One important thing to note is that America is not supposed to be a Democracy. America is a Republic. The founders were very specific when they spoke of the two. They were very weary of a Democracy (or mobocracy). The book isn't a bad read if you can get past that fact.

    This one won't open on my Nook Color.

    When I try to open the book, I get an error dialog that says, "Sorry, cannot open this book." Well, I'm sorry, but I can't recommend what I can't read. I highly recommend "Democracy in America", just not this particular version of the book.
