Publisher Description

Acclaimed journalist Jeffrey Toobin takes us into the chambers of the most important—and secret—legal body in our country, the Supreme Court, revealing the complex dynamic among the nine people who decide the law of the land. An institution at a moment of transition, the Court now stands at a crucial point, with major changes in store on such issues as abortion, civil rights, and church-state relations. Based on exclusive interviews with the justices and with a keen sense of the Court’s history and the trajectory of its future, Jeffrey Toobin creates in The Nine a riveting story of one of the most important forces in American life today.

Excellent read

Great read and an insightful view into the workings of our highest court. The author's personal political views are remarkably absent from this commentary.

Adequate

I thought this was an interesting and informative book. While I agreed with most of the author's conclusions, I would have preferred a less obviously biased narrative.
