This was my first Audible listen. Worth the $8 introductory credit, but not something I'm going to rave about. Competently written, well-narrated, but no virtuosity. I kept me interested, although in retrospect the sideline story is a quite lengthy gimmick.
The sideline is that the protagonist is dying from mesothelioma contracted from asbestos he naievely worked and played with in a blue collar job he had years before he became a famous metal sculptor.
The sideline is also competently written and woven into the story, but, in retrospect, the equivalent of Hamburger Helper.
As a registered Democrat, there are others I'd rather see on the Court than Roberts. That aside, I'm also a lawyer and find Roberts an amazingly clear and direct legal thinker and writer.
I recommend this short interesting recording to any litigator, not only for its information about the Supreme Court, but also for the insight it provides to Roberts style of thinking and communicating. I wish I could have had Roberts as a Constitutional Law professor or as a legal writing instructor.
Legal writing instructor Bryan Garner also has recordings of several of the Justices, including Roberts, at his website. I've heard Roberts there and recommend it as well.
