Summer Reading: Restoring the Lost Constitution

I started reading Restoring the Lost Constitution:  The Presumption of Liberty by Randy E. Barnett, but I stopped after the first two chapters.  Barnett writes well, and the book is interesting, but I’m afraid I’m just not in the mood to read a scholarly tome this summer.  I may pick it up again some time in the future.
