I think this is going to prove to be an important book. The methods are a little outside my comfort zone, but intuitively, they have appeal. I would argue about some of the assumptions and I'm not sure why the analysis in the conclusion is included, but overall, I think they've demonstrated some influence of law and the other branches of government in ways we've not been able to do before. Even though it's not all justices influenced, it's something.
