Reviews - What do our customers think?
Fun; Intuitive.  Oct 27, 2007
The layout is less intuitive than, say, an idiots guide, but doesn't talk down to you and leave out details while doing it.

The genius about this book is the fact that it remains intuitive via the writing style. This book was meant, I believe, to be read from front to back as an easily digestible read, but can be taken in part.

Good stuff.
Where are the states ?  Mar 10, 2007
This is not to judge or grade this book on American Government.
But it is true that I looked for something which I consider an essential element of federal government, and I did not find it her, and not in other presentations of American government either.
Namely, there is no systematic presentation of the division of legislative (and administrative) powers between the federal and the state level, and there is no information either on fiscal federalism, the division, between the two levels, of collecting and of spending public money, and of their respective degree of autonomy in doing so.
It is easier to find information on some of these aspects in Wikipedia than here, which I found disappointing.
There you are,
Best, C.Deubner
Good for basic knowledge, but bias still shows  Jan 27, 2007
Relatively easy to understand explaination of the basics; however the author's political bias is definitely there and comes out repeatedly in his highlighted examples, which overshadows what he should be trying to illustrate.
Interesting and Informative  Jan 4, 2007
This book is an excellent guide to the American Government system. It covers historical events surrounding the writing of the Constitution and reveals personal information on the founding fathers. This book is an interesting read and a great companion book to AP Government Classes for High Schoolers or anyone who would like to have more information on the political roots and processes in America.
Great read for anyone/everyone  Sep 12, 2006
Whether starting to explore the American government's workings or brushing up, this is a great guide. Nick Ragone's straight-forward approach breaks it down, creating a refreshing, interesting read.
