The Founding Father's Guide to the Constitution By Brion T. McClanahan

This is one of those "must read" books.  The books discusses the "original intent" of the founding fathers that ratified the Constitution.  The book is well written and flows very smoothly.  The books goes through the various sections of the Constitution and discusses the views of the proponents as well as those opposed.  The book has quotes but also ties it into today's interpretation. 

This book is very educational and you will glean much needed information from it.  The scary part about this book is to see the leviathan that we have in D.C. and wonder well the hell did we go wrong?  I recommend this book to anyone interested in what the "Central" government can, and most importantly CAN'T do.  It discusses what the President's job description is, rather, should be as well as the congress and senate's.  It also solidified my belief that one of the worst things ever done is the 17th Amendment.  Short book chock-full information that is absolutely essential to our lives as Americans.
