This book is a must read for anyone interested in learning more about the Supreme Court in general, and in particular, the life and career of Justice Blackmun. Although originally thought to be a conservative jurist in the style of Chief Justice Warren Burger, Justice Blackmun found himself steadily leaning to the left of the ideological divide on the Court as he grew older. You will be amazed by his thoughtfulness and the care with which he decides some of the most difficult court cases of the 20th century, e.g. Roe v. Wade.
