Do you know what the Con­sti­tu­tion ACTU­AL­LY says? This wit­ty and high­ly rel­e­vant anno­ta­tion of our found­ing doc­u­ment is the go-to guide to how our gov­ern­ment real­ly works (or is sup­posed to work). Writ­ten by polit­i­cal savant and enter­tain­ment vet­er­an, Ben Shee­han, and vet­ted for accu­ra­cy by experts in the field of con­sti­tu­tion­al law, OMG WTF Does the Con­sti­tu­tion Actu­al­ly Say? is an enter­tain­ing and acces­si­ble guide that explains what the Con­sti­tu­tion actu­al­ly lays out. With clear notes and graph­ics on every­thing from pres­i­den­tial pow­ers to Supreme Court nom­i­na­tions to hid­den loop­holes, Shee­han walks us through the entire Con­sti­tu­tion from its pre­am­ble to its final amend­ment (with a bonus sec­tion on the Dec­la­ra­tion of Inde­pen­dence). Besides putting the Con­sti­tu­tion in mod­ern-day Eng­lish so that it can be under­stood, OMG WTF Does the Con­sti­tu­tion Actu­al­ly Say? gives read­ers all of the info they need to be effec­tive vot­ers and cit­i­zens in the Novem­ber elec­tions and beyond.
