    1. How do you rate a book 5 stars when it reads like minutes to a long, long meeting Well, when the writer is James Madison, and the subject is the 1787 US Constitutional Convention, just considering all I learned from this book is reason enough Yes it could have been exciting, but sometimes history is just pure, hard facts No embellishment here This is well worth reading.
