The Nine Reviews
"His savvy account puts the supposedly cloistered Court right in the thick of American life." - PW.
"The Nine is engaging, erudite, candid and accessible, often hard to put down. Toobin is a natural storyteller, and the stories he tellshow a coalition of centrist justices saved Roe v. Wade; why Rehnquist, despite having loathed the rights granted to criminal suspects by Miranda v. Arizona, eventually declined to overturn the decision; how right-wing firebrands deep-sixed the Supreme Court candidacies of Alberto Gonzales and Harriet Miersare gripping." - David Margolick, The New York Times Book Review.
the Supremes command more attention than ever, and Mr. Toobin's new book The Nine not only provides a vivid narrative history of the court's recent history but also gives the reader an intimate look at individual justices, showing how personality, judicial philosophy and personal alliances can inform decisions that have huge consequences for the entire country." - Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times.
"A smart brief about the high court that suffers from sometimes dubious and occasionally inadmissible historical evidence." - Kirkus Reviews.

Thank goodness there are insightful and honest analysts as Toobin. The wealth of knowledge gained from reading THE NINE will make for easier voting decisions in the November elections. I had chosen the book as a gift and was hoping to have Mr.Toobin graciously sign it!
