Contemporary Culture • 9.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

The author narrates in a clear, deliberate voice that helps listeners process the legalese that is necessary in a discussion of the Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights. But her tone shifts between that of a benevolent tour guide and that of a condescending teacher. Wehle's prose explores the major tenets and intellectual considerations at the core of these two founding documents to distill what is said, what isn't said, and what is up for debate. (Spoiler alert: It's mostly up for debate.) While Wehle's narration sometimes sounds like she's talking down to listeners, this audiobook is accessible and useful to understand how and why the U.S. does and doesn't operate in the ways people sometimes expect.
