It is a well written work that would be of interest to historians & political science students. Be aware that the authors do not fully explain the context of each of the cases. For example, the Bush v. Gore case was not given a full contextual basis. There were 2 decisions made with this particular case (I have studied this case) but it is not clear from the brief explanation given. Bearing in mind that the authors chose to be brief & leave out a number of contextual basics, it is a good reference book to find cases of interest.
