The 5000 Year Leap – W. Cleon Skousen

4 03 2010

I just finished reading this book.  It is not my usual genre but I am so glad I took the time to read it.  I really learned alot about our country: how it works, the Founders’ vision and this country became a beacon of hope to the world.

I wish this book had been required reading when I was in school.  Either HS or college.  It is written in a way that any one can understand, the language is simple and to the point.  The sections are short and concise and keep your interest as you feel as though you are making quick progress through this book.

Students throughout the country should be required to read this.  It is a great background on our government and our history.

It has inspired me to learn more about the Constitution and the Founding Fathers, I can’t wait to find more reading material on this.
