    A very good book mostly because the author James Madison was an amazing intellect I gained an appreciation for the struggles to balance so many competing demands of power in government His commitment to religious freedom was rooted in the spirit of democracy seeing that as the best course for the nation to thrive A very good introduction to his writings and life as well
