This book is fantastic. While I am a lover of all things Supreme Court, this delves into the decisions behind the decisions, and the justices' personal lives and stories. The book focuses on the Rehnquist Court, followed by the appointments of Alito & Chief Justice Roberts.
It is refreshing to find a book that reads like a drama but is factual and portrays a very important part of American History. Essentially, Toobin outlines important court cases that changed the face of America, and those that continue to resonate in our lives today. There are stories in this book that made me laugh and I now have a different perspective of the Justices than than what I see on the bench.
