I found this book easy to read and the author does a great job of illuminating details of a court we seldom see the interior workings.
Counter to the above 1 star review, I wasn't able to descern a political bent to any of the chapters or stories - simply well-researched and excellent prose telling insightful chapters in our greatest courts history.
Well worth the time of any casual court buff.

Here is what was out of order

O'connor will forever be known as one of the justices who perverted elections and overthrew democracy in the repulsive Bush v Gore decision in 2000. That decision was so bad the stupid justices who voted for it said it could not be used as precedent. Yet she is completely unapologetic for that terrible decision that almost destroyed this country. A shallow, awful book from a shallow, awful woman.

    Dry

    I bought this book as a gift and the recipient told me that he found it to be dry reading, not entertaining.

    Enjoyable but not very scholarly review of Supreme Court role in American history. Some interesting tidbits about what goes on behind the scenes at the court. A good book for young people interested in the court and the first woman justice.
