The 5000 Year Leap by W. Cleon Skousen Summary
This is the best selling Original Authorized Edition regularly featured by Glenn Beck to Fox TV viewers as a Must Read. The 5000 Year Leap will take you by the hand as you discover the ideals of the Founding Fathers and their 28 principles for success. The values explored in detail by Dr. Skousen range from the Founders prerequisite that the Constitution was designed for a moral people, to a government empowered by the people with checks and balances, along with an understanding of the critical nature of fiscal responsibility and family values. This book sums up the secrets to what James Madison called a miracle. During the last 26 years of Dr. Skousen's life he continued his extensive study of the constitution and founding values. He kept his original copy of The Five Thousand Year Leap with him and would write notes in the margins and on envelops andn note cards of the refinements and updates he wished to add to the book. This Edition includes those refinements and updates.
