As Benjamin Franklin left the Constitutional Convention in 1787, he was reportedly asked what kind of government the founders would propose. He replied, “A republic, if you can keep it.” In this book, Justice Neil Gorsuch discusses his personal reflections that focus on the remarkable gift the framers left us in the Constitution. By drawing on his 30-year career as a lawyer, teacher, judge, and justice, he explores the essential aspects of our Constitution and the importance of civic education, civil discourse, and mutual respect in maintaining a healthy republic.
