OMG WTF Does the Constitution Actually Say?: A Non-Boring Guide to How Our Democracy is Supposed to Work
by Ben Sheehan Author
The entire United States Constitution plus its amendments and Declaration of Independence are printed here, with real-talk annotations translating all that 250-year-old language into something modern humans with attention spans shaped by social media have half a chance of actually understanding. This is a really useful resource for understanding your own rights (and lack thereof) as well as being able to go toe-to-toe with your Fox-watching uncle at family dinners. If you snoozed through social studies class, or if they never bothered teaching you this stuff in school, you can easily master it now. It's a fascinating document and having someone walk you through it line by line with (minimally snarky) real talk doesn't go amiss. A few fun infographics too. This book is funny and visually appealing but it's also serious and apt.
