Fascinating topic; but way too long

This book is an intricate study of one period of the US Supreme Court, with extensive insight into the thoughts of the judges.
I enjoyed the book very much, however this particular story was too long for my liking- The last 5-6 hrs were hard to get through and the writing seemed little succinct at times.

Amazing

It's history, so it's not exactly like a legal thriller. But to get inside the mind of so many important Supreme Court decisions is nothing short of amazing.

I lived through this time period - school busing, the Roe v. Wade decision, the Nixon tapes and the legalization of pornography of free speech. From the outside, these are some of the most mind-boggling decisions of my lifetime. Thanks to Woodward, there's at least an understanding of how the decisions came to be made.

This is a great way to understand how the court works, and how Presidential appointments make such a profound difference.

good book but about history

it's a little bit of a critique that mostly makes you think less of the supreme court justices.. good in a way, they are human, but bad on that they make some seem dont and unqualified which brings into doubt the legitimacy of decisions. the current court is only worse, so I do wonder what would be writen now.
