    " Not as much background on the Constitutional Convention debates regarding impeachment as I would have liked, and the lack of documentation on the quotes is very disappointing. But I appreciate the background on prior attempts to reign in the executive branch. "

    " I watched an interview with the author of this book on PBS. It was well written and captivating. I came to realize how little I truly understood the U.S. Constitution. My hatred for the Bush administration also increased! "

    " This book angered me. Or rather, the case that this book presents angered me. Sad and spineless Dems. "

    " Nichols lays out the case for impeachment as an integral bulwark against executive overreaching and tyranny in all its forms. Not an exotic ritual to be used only in emergency, but a cudgel to be wielded freely to keep the executive branch in its proper place in the constitutional order. "
