    Excellent Historical Perspective

    As any good lawyer, Rehnquist understands history better than most and adds political insight to the most famous decisions over the years in the Supreme Court. He also tell us about the characters of the lead Justices. He is unuqiely qulaified to tell this story from his seat as Chief Justice on today's court and does really well to tell us non lawyers how it is and has been over the years. A good read for law school students and a nice second hand present for my lawyer buddies.

    Chief Justice Rehnquist, Judge, Historian, and Scholar

    Chief Justice Rehnquist's presentation of the Supreme Court can be best summed as thorough and comprehensive in content, yet simple and delightful to read. His extensive knowledge and experience as a Chief Justice makes this book a great read especially for those wanting to get a comprehensive overview of the Supreme Court, both past and present, in a relatively short amount of time. For about the first half of the book, Chief Justice Rehnquist recollects the history of the Supreme Court, mainly by analyzing the past Justices' lives, both personal and professional and the historic cases each were respectively involved in. The latter half of the book grants the reader a behind-the-scene access to see how the Supreme Court functions today (ie. how a case reaches the Supreme Court). Chief Justice Rehnquist, aside from his current role as a Justice for the Supreme Court, undoubtedly proves to be a knowledgeable historian and an astute scholar as well through his book.

    Well-written Overview of the Supreme Court

    Rehnquist takes a subject that could be extremely dry and makes an interesting read by interspersing history and personal recollections with witty commentary. He relates the history through major cases with context and background of the justices involved as well as giving an overview of practices of the court current during his tenure and the reasons for them.
