In this intimate portrait of an institution, America's first female Supreme Court Justice traces the Court's history to its inner workings in contemporary life. By couching her narrative in her personal reflections, she shows how landmark cases, key ideas, and influential people have built the Court as an edifice that continues to demand active interpretation. Her book particularly emphasizes the turbulent battle women have fought in the legal system since America's inception, her own position an expression of the labors of the suffrage movement and its efforts to change the lives of American women in voting booths, jury boxes, and homes. One of the most powerful women in American history tells us what she thinks matters most in American law. Download and start listening now!

    " Interesting but a bit simplistic "

    " I read this a while ago (can't remember exactly when) and it was a very readable primer on the Supreme Court and the legal system for me (who doesn't know bupkus about these things) as well as a glimpse into O'Connor's life. I remember when she was first appointed and what a big deal it was that a woman was appointed (I was in high school at the time). I'm reminded that I read this book due to the DOMA/Prop 8 cases being argued before SCOTUS this week. I have a better understanding of how the cases got here because of it. "

    " A fascinating look at the thoughts of Justice O'Connor, and many of the legal principles explored don't require a legal background to understand. "

    " The Supreme Court I find fascinating and this book does a good job of explaining the oddities and rituals of the system. The book is fairly conservative without much analysis, critique, or intrigue. It's a fine book, just not that interesting. The discussion of international law and court systems in other countries was interesting and something I haven't read about much before. "
