The Naked Constitution: What the Founders Said and Why It Still Matters by: Adam Freedman

I am a strict Constitutionalist in every sense of the word.  Naturally, I was attracted to this book.  However when I started reading this book, I noticed a kind of comical component to the book which was not too bad however the partisan nature of the book was bothersome.  In my own opinion, party in matters of Constitution have absolutely no place.  I am well aware how President Obama has skirted the Constitution, however I am equally aware that Bush did too, as did Clinton, Papa Bush, Reagan etc, etc.

While I agree with his criticism of the Left and although he is on solid ground Constitutionally speaking, the criticism of the GOP is blatantly absent.  The criticism of the left is nauseatingly plentiful.  This book is geared specifically toward the legislative interpretation of the Constitution.

I recommend this book if you are able to ignore the partisan tone of it.
