    A leading Supreme Court expert recounts the personal and philosophical rivalries that forged our nation's highest court and continue to shape our daily lives. The Supreme Court is the most mysterious branch of government, and yet the Court is at root a human institution, made up of very bright people with very strong egos, for whom political and judicial conflicts often become personal.

    Trevor Burnham says: "Excellent history"
    "Excellent listen"
    Overall

    This is an outstanding book -- thoughtful, well-researched, well-written, and well-narrated. Rosen's thesis is both intriguing and argued compellingly. He offers valuable insights about the court that apply to other dimensions of our public, political life.

    A neurotic young graduate student looking for distraction from her doomed thesis is inexplicably swept off her feet by a narcissistic philosophy professor. The obsession continues even after he has dumped her for someone even needier and she has given up on school and become a television writer. Meeting again in New York, they begin an adulterous affair that, of course, can only end in some kind of crisis.

    Overall

    I couldn't even finish this; it was that bad. Narrator doesn't help, but didn't find any humor nor any characters worth investing in.

    Dean Robillard is the Chicago Stars' hotshot quarterback. Not only does he have lightening reflexes on the field, he is also utterly gorgeous. First seen in the critically acclaimed Match Me If You Can, Dean is trying to recover (both mentally and physically) from a shoulder injury by taking a road trip. Along the way he meets Blue, a beautiful woman down on her luck, and as they spend more time together their attraction grows.

    MSEreads says: "Another CHARMER from SEP!"
    "Avoid this one"
    Overall

    A predictable plot, cardboard characters, and a narrator who makes the story sag and drag. Her voice changes for male characters make them sound brainless.

    In the two years since they were married, nothing has mattered so much to either Saul or Patsy as the fact that they are just that: Saul-and-Patsy. And though they've ended up in a small city of Five Oaks, Michigan, their life together is an idyll of domestic romance. At least for a while.

    Don says: "Saul and Patsy"
    "Saul and Patsy"
    Overall

    An exceptional book with well-drawn characters who drive the novel. The interfaith marriage, the anti-Semitism in the small Michigan city, the conflicts between Saul and his mother and brother make this an engaging and insightful literary novel. The aimless/pointless suicide and the growth of the "Himmel" cult show a perceptive understanding of youth culture. Well worth reading, or listening to.
