    An Excellent & Magnificent Study

    Justice O'Connor's book moves the mind, and allows the reader to truly appreciate the brilliance of the common law, our country and the importance of having an independent judiciary, the freedom of the press and the seperation of powers. All incoming law students ought to read this masterpiece prior to the first year--certainly before Constitutional Law--and all members of the profession ought to thourgouhly read Justice O'Connor at least once. The general public may find the subject matter to be difficult, but all civic minded individuals ought to spend the time in reading this American masterpiece. It is very well written and moving.

    Amazing and insightful!

    This book came out just a few months before I started law school. I read it just before school started, and it was such a great motivator. This book is an amazing glimpse into the mind of one of the most amazing Justices to ever sit on the Supreme Court. It gave me such a good perspective, and was thoroughly entertaining as well. A must read for new law students, and a very good read for everyone else, too!

    Had potential, but failed dreadfully

    I was required to read this book for my government class. It sounded really interesting but the way O'Connor tells her story put me to sleep. The vocabulary is overwhelmingly thick and marrs the storyline. I would only recommend this book to someone who has a massive understanding of huge words, or has a dictionary and alot of time on their hands.
