Be warned- the publisher has an agenda:

Review by "Aren Tigs" on Amazon:

I have no problem with the reproduction of the constitution and the Declaration of Independence. However, the booklet itself is too long to properly fit into a pocket. The paper is a bit too glossy and the kerning is poor.

The more substantive problem I find is the inclusion of several out-of-context quotations from the founders that assert a politicized constitutional interpretation. More egregious are the ones that push religious views.

The National Center for Constitutional Studies is a flagrantly partisan organization trying to proselytize its agenda through this seemingly innocuous booklet. Don't give your money to these people if you simply want to have the Constitution handy. Ask your congressman for a better proportioned and apolitical copy.


Yeah, you don't need Amazon to tell you about who these guys are. It's all over the 'net if you just look for them. Here's a good example (thread related) : http://www.acslaw.org/acsblog/all/national-center-for-constituti...

I suppose if your political leanings are similar you might enjoy haviong your views confirmed. If not then this little booklet is not going to make you very happy.

you guys are all wrong. its true you can access the text of the constitution online from many of places. but there is one key thing you cannot do with text on the screen of your computer. you will be unable to go out in public places and tell everyone who bothers you that they are violating your constitutional rights. anytime you have an argument with someone over such issues, the guy with the pocket constitution always wins. so this isn't about reading the constitution, this is about letting people know they are violating your rights and also about winning arguments.

The only rights that "count" anymore, are not in the Constitution.

IMHO most people who would have a problem with the publisher's "agenda", probably aren't terribly interested in reading the Constitution anyway nor are they likely to understand its foundational precepts.

Yeah, good luck with that. The text of the Constitution is only the FOUNDATION of those rights. The only way you'd really be able to win such an argument is if you carried around 200+ years of Court interpreted case law in your pocket. That might get a bit heavy.

Or else they actually DO and that's why they object to such an "addendum with an agenda" type publication.
