I really enjoyed the initial history of the founding father's discussions and debates behind the writing of the Constitution. However, the author showed his bias towards the end of the book when discussing the role of the Supreme Court. He applauded the sweeping decisions of the Courts during the 1960s and 70s, yet failed to admonish the more recent court decisions that have legislated laws from the bench...according to how the justices WISH the laws were written, instead of preserving what the Constitution actually says. Yes, we needed the amendments to make our civil liberties more clear and to include race and gender. However, there are many who would rather just re-interpret the Constitution from now on, rather than trust the majority of the people to amend it. It was clear that the author doesn't agree.
