Overview

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 ten 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 book gives you a place to start reading them made easier in How to Read the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.

Editorial Reviews

Sam Sorbo
It's great! I highly recommend "How to Read the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence!"
Peter Gemma
"How to Read the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence" is the best book of the 2016 election season but it has nothing to do with candidates or political parties. It is a handbook every voter should have to understand why the polling booth transcends politics. This is an easy-to-read guide to discover why we call ourselves Constitutionalists and not just Conservatives.
Ivan Brown
As an educator I am concerned that the next generation be able to understand the wisdom in our country's brilliant founding documents.  After reading Mr. Skousen's new book, How to Read and Understand the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, I believe a very useful, simple, and innovative way to understand that system is here.  Now anyone can take those documents and, following the outline in this text, unravel the plain meaning.
AML Review
"How to Read the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence" by Paul B. Skousen makes our nation's founding documents easier to read and remember. This book can arm the reader with understanding and patriotic vigilance to protect our nation and allow it to continue to stand as a beacon to the world. I recommend this book to any and all who are patriotic and freedom loving. It is one tool that can help us defend our homes, our families, our beliefs and our ability to live safely.
