    From Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, the first woman to sit on the United States Supreme Court, comes this fascinating book about the history and evolution of the highest court in the land. Out of Order sheds light on the centuries of change and upheaval that transformed the Supreme Court from its uncertain beginnings into the remarkable institution that thrives and endures today.

    G. House Sr. says: "A Historical Account of the Supreme Court"
    "Boring and repetitive"

    Story

    Most authors should not read their own books, and Judge Day-O'Conner is no exception. Her tempo and breathing is out of sync with the material, reminding me of a grandmother reading nursery rhymes to a grandchild on her lap. While the content of the book is interesting, the presentation style of date-event, date-event is tiresome, and many of the date-events are repeated in separate chapters, some more than once.
    Her first book, "The Majesty of the Law: Reflections of a Supreme Court Justice" was much better written and read, as well as containing more interesting material.
    Those interested in the history of the court will be much better off listening to "The Great Decision" by Cliff Sloan and David McKean.
