Unfold Book Jacket for a Full-Color Reproduction of the U.S. Constitution With their book Signing Their Lives Away, Denise Kiernan and Joseph D'Agnese introduced readers to the 56 statesmen (and occasional scoundrels!) who signed the Declaration of Independence.

Now they've turned their attention to the 39 men who met in the summer of 1787 and put their names to the U.S. Constitution. Signing Their Rights Away chronicles a moment in American history when our elected officials knew how to compromise--and put aside personal gain for the greater good of the nation. These men were just as quirky and flawed as the elected officials we have today: Hugh Williamson believed in aliens, Robert Morris went to prison, Jonathan Dayton stole $18,000 from Congress, and Thomas Mifflin was ruined by alcohol. Yet somehow these imperfect men managed to craft the world's most perfect Constitution. With 39 mini-biographies and a reversible dust jacket that unfolds into a poster of the original document, Signing Their Rights Away offers an entertaining and enlightening narrative for history buffs of all ages.

    Let me tell you why I enjoyed this book. It really is just a simple 3-5 page profile of each of the Constitution signers. But you learn SO MUCH about how terribly crazy, sneaky, criminal, turn-coat, smart, stupid, drunk, rich, poor, and normal these men were. So much like we are today. They disagreed with each other all the time. HATED each other at times! And we put these men on pedestals as our Founding Fathers. They would be appalled!

But you learn SO MUCH about how terribly crazy, sneaky, criminal, turn-coat, smart, stupid, drunk, rich, poor, and normal these men were. So much like we are today. They disagreed with each other all the time. HATED each other at times! And we put these men on pedestals as our Founding Fathers. They would be appalled! They weren’t incredibly wise, they weren’t thinking of how to BEST run a nation. They were simply trying to find a WAY to run a new nation without causing mass hysteria and war within a short period of time and hoping they could prevail. They were simply doing their best with what they had at the time. My take-away? Just do your best with what you have, no matter what kind of Saint or Asshole you may be. A must-read. PLUS you get a full copy of the U.S. Constitution for your personal reference!

    This book was very informative. Feeding my hunger for knowledge on the men who signed the constitution and more about them than just what I’ve learned in government class. I’d recommend this book to history nerds everywhere.
