you may not agree with his politics (Levin is clearly a conservative) but his look behind the scenes at the supreme court is very insightful. I certainly came away with a better understanding of why many people feel that the supreme court is usurping the powers of the other branches of government. The reviewer that claimed that Levin has no idea how the supreme court works-either didn't read the book, or is letting his/her politics get in the way of his/her judgement. While you may not agree with his politics, 30 minutes of listening to this audiobook will disprove you of the notion that Levin has no idea of how the supreme court works. In fact, if there is a downside to this book, it is that is does tend to slip into the nitty gritty details of the court, but I suppose Levin does this to protect himself from the charge that he doesn't know what he's talking about.
Mark Levin is a no nonsense New York intellectual. A lawyer and a decent human being. You may not agree with what he says about the Court; you may not like his in-your-face conservatism; you may not even like his radio show on WABC. I do. I bought this audiobook and I have learned a lot from the "Great One". Now, somebody buy one of these for Ron Kuby please.
This Eye Opening look into our nation's Highest Court is nothing less than Spectacular.Any truely objective reader will soon discover what is really driving our nation's "Sickness of Political Correctness".
Bachelor Chef and Mathematician. I don't bother with books shorter than 20 hours, not worth the effort.
If you are tired of the same old liberal spin on the Constitutional Legal System this is a great book. Mark points out how through the last 100 years the court has been used for legal favoritism as well as political fortunes, especially by some famous liberals.
For me: this was a great education
I will reserve my political views,
It should be obvious by the title the book leans to the right, but eduicational value alone is worth the read
It is a terrible shame that people who have never read the book take the time to "slam" the author-s or points of view of many books for no other reason than to voice their bias if you don't like it, simply don't read it,go to the blogs and hammer away, don't put your "graffiti" in the reviews
Eye-opening... yes; Scary, .. yes; factual and on target;... absolutely!
This is perhaps the most important book you will read in this decade, especially if it starts the debate to correct our out-of-control Judiciary.
Our country is not run by the President or Congress and it is not guided by our Constitution. It is run by nine un-elected men and women in a job for life that judge by their own agenda, except for the few true Constitutionalist. The Supreme Court and Judicial System is the last political power of the Liberals of this country determined to direct the future by special interest, social agenda, and without God. It is the path for your future and your children's future. What Liberals cannot do in the voting poles they are determined to do without majority in the courts.
This is a wake-up call for the rest of us.
This book is a concise and timely synopsis of the history of the Supreme Court's case law as it pertains to the Consitution. A good listen for anyone who wants a basic understanding of the subject or a short refresher course on the Court.
If you see a review with less than 3 stars, be assured, there are two reasons.
1. The reviewer has an IQ in the single digits. OR
2. The reviewer wants none other than to disparage a book, any book that supports the US Constitution and/or condemns legislating from the bench.
If you want the truth, you will not be disappointed in this book
