Good insights into how the Supreme Courts works from an insider's perspective. Addresses how gross errors by politicized SCs were made and how some were corrected. Also how, in the past, decisions weren't always accepted by the public, Congress, or Executive branch. Nowadays, even the obviously political decisions are accepted. The most recent examples being Bush v Gore and Citizens United. Reading this book is very timely now that the SC is considering the Affordable Health Care Act. 4 stars
