    Excellent Easy Read!!

    This is one of those books that reads like fiction. Usually nonfiction is tough to get through but not with Jeff Shesol. He is so easy to read, you feel like you're reading a story. Just like David McCullough. Excellent! There is nothing else I can say.

    WONDERFUL HISTORY THAT RELATES TO TODAY

    This is a well researched, well written history that takes us back to the future...as FDR wrestled with many of the same issues and conflicts and constuencies that Obama is dealing with. This book sheds a great deal of light on today.

    A joy to read

    I loved reading this book about FDR and the Supreme Court in 1935, In the years before World War Two, it was Roosevelt's fiercest, and the most unyielding opponent was not a foreign power, It was the Supreme Court, because it was a 15 round title fight, it was a long fight, this is a great book about a great man, FDR and the Supreme Court, it is filled with tons of history and tons of information that you can take with you for as long as you live, it will be with you, overall this a great book and by a great author Jeff Shesol, you will enjoy reading this great book, so enjoy it.

    Terrific Read

    So often, the workings of the Court are often discounted next to those of Congress and of past and present occupants of the White House. In this book, Shesol shows us what happens when two branches of government attempt to circumvent the other.

    This is a terrific read for those that like history!
