    1. I picked this book up because my daughter is taking an American History course and is about to take a test on the formation of the U.S. Constitution. This book has an excellent chapter on precisely what she will be tested on. The rest of the book is an examination of the constitution along with some anecdotes from Ben Carson's life. Everyone should know their constitutional rights. The founding fathers put in place a brilliant document that has stood the test of time. The federalists insured we [...]


    2. The Republican Presidential Candidate Ben Carson expounds on the US Constitution In this book entitled, "A More Perfect Union" The Republican Presidential Candidate Ben Carson expounds on the US Constitution. This is an inspiring book to understand and defend our Constitution.

    3. A More Perfect Union: What We The People Can Do to Reclaim Our Constitutional Liberties by Ben Carson, MD“A More Perfect Union" is an informative introduction to the key elements of the Constitution. Dr. Ben Carson provides the general public with his views on why understanding the Constitution is vital to preserving liberty for all. Find out why this progressive reviewer found this book to be an upgrade to his previous book, “One Nation”. This educational 253-page book includes fifteen ch [...]


    4. Ugh, this book. I had a difficult time discerning what the point of this book was because it doesn't read like most of the books coming out this year by these other politicos running for high office. It's not quite in the same vein as Rubio's and Trump's recent efforts, both of which provide a comprehensive overview of their philosophies on governance and their stances on a variety of expected issues. Nor was it autobiographical in nature like Cruz's A Time for Truth (though I suppose Carson cov [...]


    5. I'm breaking my rules a bit by reviewing this book since I didn't read the whole thing, but I think I've got the gist of it. Its not my fault most of it is an incredibly boring and farcically misleading retelling of 3rd grade history and civics class (Why are you trying to explain the history of the British colonies in North America AND the American revolution in 3 pages????). In the few areas where he discusses relevant policy matters, as opposed to just listing the powers granted to the govern [...]


    6. A great review of the Constitution and Bill of Rights. I don't agree with Dr. Carson on all the issues, but I do know how important it is to understand the Constitution and will vote for a candidate who, not only understands it but will uphold the Constitution as the Founding Fathers intended.


    7. I'm soooooooo glad Dr. Carson is going to be our next president. so refreshing to have a president who will actually uphold the constitution :)


    8. A More Perfect Union: What We the People Can Do To Reclaim Our Constitutional Liberty by Dr. Ben Carson, is a political book, teaching people about the constitution and telling people how they can defend the document when other people try to interpret it wrongly. He talks about the history of the Constitution as regards to the founding fathers and history of the United States during the late 18th century. Carson writes in a straightforward and factual way using and explaining citizen’s rights [...]


    9. I was curious to learn more about Ben Carson, so when I saw he published a new book, I read it right away. Unfortunately, this book is just an overview of the constitution, with Ben Carson's commentary and interpretation of what it means. I can't really say that I learned anything substantial from his comments as they mostly just echoed the stereotypical conservative ideas of the day. Ben Carson really dislikes gun control and the national obsession over political correctness, and it seems as th [...]


    10. In this book, Dr. Ben Carson demonstrates his knowledge of early American history and his knowledge of the constitution. Dr Carson breaks down the constitution section by section and defines every meaning. Reading A More Perfect Union is a great to brush up or expand your knowledge about the constitution.


    11. I enjoyed this book and a ver good civics refresher. He did a great job of explaining the importance of our constitution and how important it is for the citizens to be involved with the election process. Very good break down of each part of the constitution and the bill of rights. I think this would be helpful for any voting citizen regardless of your political preference.


    12. Ben Carson really breaks down the constitution by discussing the history and meaning of each part and how it applies to our time. He also places much emphasis on the importance for U.S. citizens to stand up for and protect the constitution in various ways. I would read it again.




    13. This book wasn't that great. It was merely a commentary on the Constitution. It seems that Carson just wanted to get his name out before the 2016 election.


    14. This book is advocacy for the U.S. Constitution with the theme of “We the People”. The title, “A More Perfect Union” describes the transition from the Articles of Confederation, a perpetual union to the Constitution that unites the states in a Republic unique among the nations of the world.Dr. Carson gives the history and the description, and workings of the governing document of our nation. He relates how the constitution has guaranteed liberty to “We the People”. And calls us today [...]


    15. This was a very clear explanation of why we need to be educated citizens, in order to keep the freedoms our Founding Fathers so painstakingly prescribed in the Constitution. If we don't know what it says, how we will we be able to insist that our elected representatives uphold it?A good primer to anyone new to our country, also.


    16. Carson asserts that we are in the mess we are in largely because Americans do not know their own history nor much about the Constitution and the amendments to it.He is, in my opinion spot on with that assessment.His book is an attempt to change that by explaining it in simple yet effective prose the history of our founding documents and how easy it is to grasp what the words mean when an ideology does not drive interpretation.It seems clear to me anyway that the progressive left is hell bent on [...]


    17. Ben Carson's 'A More Perfect Union' analyzes and explains the Constitution in a simplified manner. It is presented in a way that the majority of the people who read this will have a better understanding of the Constitution. Carson also explains that the Constitution is in fact a simple and straightforward document and that too many politicians have manipulated and trampled, tried to re-define the meaning or simply over-ruled it. The Constitution of the United States plainly states its goals in t [...]


    18. What a great book! This is like taking a personal study course on the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Clearly lays out the three branches of government and how their powers are "checks and balances" to each other. PLUS, it lays out what powers each branch actually has and HOW those powers balance each other. Really helps readers to think about how the branches keep overstepping each other when it is not legal for them to do so. As you read through this, you will think back upon the instances yo [...]


    19. I like Ben Carson, and have read most of his books, and picked this book from my local library. However, this should not deter someone who does not like him from reading this book, because it is mainly a history of how the Constitution and The Bill of Rights were created and what they mean. The first part is the history of, and the second half of the book breaks down what the Articles are saying. Carson does not push his agenda in the book, even though he does point out how certain politicians h [...]


    20. Yet again, Dr Carson has delivered an insightful, thought-provoking book that I believe every single American should be required to read. This one is essentially a primer on our Constitution and provides some sorely needed insight into what it says, and why it says what it does. With the overall lack of public knowledge (myself included) about this extremely important document, and the relentless rhetoric from certain politicians espousing things that are in direct opposition to it, I can't over [...]


    21. A More Perfect Union is a good summary of the history of the Constitution and the Bill of rights. Dr. Ben Carson wrote this book to help Americans understand the need to hold onto our liberties in this day of political correctness. We need to understand the kind of country our founding fathers planned. We need to know that the Bill of Rights guarantees our freedom of speech, our right to bear arms, our right to be true to our faith. Here’s a quote from the book. “Our Constitution was not des [...]


    22. Well… First of all I didn't think they could do it but they found a reader for this audiobook that had the same cadence as Ben Carson. Which means it was much like getting a lecture from one of those professors you've had that put 0 excitement into the subject. Dr. Carson is a great man but he's no Abraham Lincoln in terms of oration.This was crafted as a primer on the Constitution and its amendments. The content was good and a lot of the historical context was excellent. However, several of t [...]


    23. This being one of the first political books or books about political thought, I found this very good and informative. Part of the reason I picked it up at my library was because I'm on a quest to learn more about the presidential candidates in the race this year, before making a decision, I am trying to be an informed citizen about the candidates on both sides. This being said, this is a book about the constitution, written by Ben Carson. I am not a particularly religious person so the Bible quo [...]


    24. Everyone in this country should read this book. Concise, informative, no-nonsense, and inspiring are just a few of the words that come to mind after reading this wonderful book. Carson and his wife break down the Constitution into each part and clearly describe what each means, what the founders motivations were when they constructed this, and how we should be following these ideas to get this country back to what it once was. Carson doesn't call people names, criticize policies, or convey a sen [...]


    25. “A More Perfect Union” is Dr. Ben Carson’s analysis of the U. S. Constitution. Early on he establishes that doctors have long been involved in American government based on their intelligence, education and experience. He explains the basis of the Constitution, to protect the citizens’ rights and how the lessons learned by the Founders are reflected in the Constitutional provisions. At times the author drifts into commentary on current challenges and affairs and presents his view on how t [...]


    26. Dr. Carson provides some great insight & perspective on our US Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the rest of the amendments. His method of presentation highlights the key points by pulling out the words that provide the most important aspects of each article or amendment and then giving some history behind the purpose of each of them and what problem or issue the Founders were trying to address or anticipate. Dr. Carson cautions what is at stake if the American citizens lose sight of the [...]


    27. "A More Perfect Union" by Ben Carson was a high school civics course on steroids. Ben goes through the US Constitution from the preamble through the final ammendment putting it in plain language anyone can understand, providing historical perspective for why particular clauses were included, and how our politicians uphold or fail to uphold the Constitution. It is admittedly from a Republican perspective, but he calls out both parties and the media for failing to live up to their roles in the rep [...]


    28. It is a good book to understand the US Constitution. I loved the plain language and the analogies and anecdotes. I loved the memorable quote from Thomas Paine:"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country, but he that stands it NOW, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the m [...]
