This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Have you ever had trouble understanding the United States Bill of Rights?
Have you ever wondered what was really meant by one or more of the ten amendments?
Have you ever been unsure as to how these rights apply to modern society?
Have you even questioned if the Bill of Rights should still be held as inviolable law, nearly 250 years after its writing?
Here's the truth: the Bill of Rights is not easy to understand if you just pick it up and give it a read. The eloquent style in which it's written can be confusing. The language can cause misunderstandings. There's a lot of legal terminology that's beyond most of us. Without an understanding of the historical background of certain amendments, it's impossible to fully understand their importance and scope. And to top it all off, there are countless politicians and pundits that try to interpret our rights for us and tell us what the Founders meant.
But are you comfortable letting crooked politicians decide what your rights are? Or would you rather know and be able to insist on, with certainty, the freedoms our Founders intended for you, your family, your friends, and your fellow Americans? If you're like millions of other Americans, you'll choose the latter.
Thomas Jefferson said, "Educate and inform the whole mass of the people...They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty." He also said, "If a nation expects to be ignorant and free... it expects what never was and never will be."
That's why this book was created, and it would make the Founders proud if they were here today. This book helps you easily reach a deep understanding of the Bill of Rights by walking you through each amendment, clarifying the precise definitions of key words; providing the historical context you need to fully grasp and spirit and importance of the amendments; sharing powerfully insightful quotes on each amendment, straight from the Founders and their peers; supplying you with an extensive glossary of terms so you never get lost in a dictionary or encyclopedia trying to understand what you're reading; and more.
The Founders fought tirelessly to guarantee you specific rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Don't let two-faced politicians and pundits tell you what your rights are.

I enjoyed the book very much for its clear, concise description and explanation of the amendments, as well as brief historical reasons for their inclusion. The quotes were right on point, and added personal perspective to a pivotal point in our history. This would make a great read in an American History class. I highly recommend it.
Highly recommend to all Americans
After reading Sean's book you'll realize just how taken for granted our freedom is weather or not you carry the pocket constitution. I have read numerous books ( from 50 - 400 +pages) regarding the subject but have to say this is without a doubt the most honest and insightful.
I look forward to checking out more of your work.
Great read for the ever learning mind. Not lengthy and to the meaning. It feels good to refresh the mind on the origins of our bill of rights. Thank you.
