The historically accurate and decidedly entertaining constitutional owner’s manual is now available from the Apple iTunes store.
Charleston, SC (November 28, 2017) – The Constitution – A Revolutionary Story, offers readers a historically accurate and decidedly entertaining owner’s manual. It covers the how’s, what’s, and why’s of the United States founding documents – but with a healthy dose of political humor. Unlike the original, it won’t put readers into a coma or lead to irritable bunion syndrome. The mission is simple: to make the Constitution so easy to understand that even a career politician can grasp it.
“197.23 trillion people have never read the actual Constitution,” observes author Tom McHale. “OK, so maybe that figure is more of an estimate than a carefully researched fact. Regardless, most people arguing about what’s constitutional and what’s not know less about what it says than they do about the chemical composition of spackle.”
According to the author, the original text of the founding documents can be daunting. “Digesting the Constitution can be a bit boring, in part because it’s full of strange words like “attainder.” We’re pretty sure that ‘attainder’ has never even been on the Master’s Series of Wheel of Fortune, so how is anyone supposed to know what that is?”
That’s exactly why McHale decided to write The Constitution – A Revolutionary Story. It covers the underlying concepts of natural rights and the real purpose of consent-based government. Hint: it’s not to subpoena and investigate each other. The book also clarifies how each of the three primary founding documents, the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, work together to define the goals, theory, and mechanics of the American system.
The heart of the book is a simplified and enjoyable walk through the contents and meaning of the founding documents. Readers will have a clear understanding of what’s included in the three founding documents and each of the 17 later amendments to the Constitution.

- Constitutional What’s and Why’s
