"Absorbing....[Toobin's] savvy account puts the supposedly cloistered Court right in the thick of American life." ( Publishers Weekly)
"This is a remarkable, riveting book. So great are Toobin's narrative skills that both the justices and their inner world are brought vividly to life." (Doris Kearns Goodwin)

Surprisingly entertaining as well as thought-provoking
This perfect companion piece (or rather update) to Bob Woodward's The Brethren describes the last twenty years of the Supreme Court under Chief Justice Rehnquist.
Both author Jeffrey Toobin and reader Don Leslie enjoy the juicy absurdities and excentricites of the Justices while at the same time stressing the historic decisions they make. A surprisingly entertaining as well as thought-provoking audiobook that sheds light on one of the most important political institutions of the USA.

A must for everybody interested in US-politics
This is a fantastic book! It is very well written, full of vivid insights into the work of the Supreme Court and its justices. I think it is even better than The Bretheren, Everybody who is interested in US-politics will benefit from this gripping read and the information it provides on the importance of the court within US-politics.
