    In Five Chiefs, Justice Stevens captures the inner workings of the Supreme Court via his personal experiences with the five Chief Justices - Fred Vinson, Earl Warren, Warren Burger, William Rehnquist, and John Roberts - that he interacted with. He reminisces of being a law clerk during Vinson's tenure; a practicing lawyer for Warren; a circuit judge and junior justice for Burger; a contemporary colleague of Rehnquist; and a colleague of current Chief Justice John Roberts.

    Michael says: "Half Biography, Half Memoir"
    "GOOD ORAL HISTORY OF THE CHIEF JUSTICES"

    If you could sum up Five Chiefs in three words, what would they be?

    Informative, Educational, Interesting


    What other book might you compare Five Chiefs to and why?

    The Nine by Jeffery Tobin because it too is a perspective on judicial history.


    Which character – as performed by Gregory Itzin – was your favorite?

    Justice John Paul Stevens


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. This book is not a novel, it is an historical presentation of the Chiefs and their presiding over judicial decisions. Therefore, I felt listening sometimes required an occasional break because it consisted of legal decisions and history (dates, times).


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyed the book and learned new and interesting things about the supreme court justices.
