    It was a little hard to follow at times because of the way that different cases overlap chronologically, but overall I appreciated this look at how the Supreme Court functions on the inside. Suffice to say there's a lot more politicking than one would expect of people chosen for their legal expertise. I would be curious to know how things are similar or different today because my understanding is that Antonin Scalia forced the court to become more technically adept in making its decisions, but I wouldn't be surprised to find out that despite that, many of the decisions come down to the same kind of contention and compromising that is portrayed here.

    My only complaint is that the book had to end. I’m currently a law student, and this book provided so much backstory into the civil rights era Court. It allowed me to better understand many landmark decisions. But even if it hadn’t been useful as a student, I still would have loved it.
