If Thomas Jefferson himself walked into a discussion between two modern Constitutional "scholars" he'd most likely put up with it for about 2 minutes before yelling "Boooorrrrringggg!" and challenging them to a duel for putting people to sleep with his work. Once Jefferson is done with them, he'd go after your eighth grade civics teacher. Reading and understanding the Constitution can and should be as enjoyable as a pleasant dinner-table conversation, complete with laughter, funny stories and milk occasionally coming out your nose. To get there, The Constitution At Your Dinner Table offers down-to-earth and humorous comments and explanations that elite scholars might find low-brow and undignified but you'll find bring the Constitution to life. Be forewarned, this book will NOT- 1. Stop and ponder every legal detail; 2. Attempt to explore the feelings of the Founders; 3. Use snobbish language to attempt to sound more authoritative 4. Use the favorite tools of legal scholars, namely extensive footnotes that qualify, parse, contradict, obscure and otherwise befuddle the main text.
