Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Richard | 2/18/2014

    " An outstanding account of the writing of the constitution during 3 months at the constitutional convention in Philadelphia in 1787. Stewart gives an almost daily account of the events, the arguments, and personalities involved. I would highly recommend this book. It is not a fast read, however. I listened to an audiobook which was great. "

    " Great Book for anyone one interested in the little things that went on behind the closed doors of Independence hall in Philly while producing one of the world's greatest documents. "

    " Learn the personalities, context, and debates that formed our constitution. Much of this book is taken from Madison's notes along with a lot of other very thorough research. This is a very comprehensive and incredibly enlightening book on our founding fathers and our founding document. "

    " A very informative and an eye-opening account of the proceedings introducing me to characters from history that were only peripherally or unknown to me. "
