    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.

    Story

    Very well written and researched. Seemed impartial as well. I recommend it but I did find it a bit rambling and repetitious. Not as compelling as others but still worth the time. In the end I learned a lot about the history of the major justices.

    Even today, almost five decades after John F. Kennedy was slain, the public continues to be captivated by the "Kennedy Curse" and new theories about what really happened on that fateful day in 1963. For nearly 50 years former Secret Service agent Clint Hill has lived with the unimaginable guilt of losing a president on his watch and has obeyed an honor code of silence, refusing to contribute to any books about the assassination. Until now.

    Story

    Very detailed and personal view of the horrible day in Dallas. Interesting but not much new information for those who have closely followed the news and reports. Can't help but feel renewed pain for all those involved - even the traumatized members of the Secret Service.

    For years, Dick Cavett played host to the nation’s most famous personalities on his late-night talk show. In this humorous and evocative book, we get to hear Cavett's best tales, as he recounts great moments with the legendary entertainers who crossed his path and offers his own trenchant commentary on contemporary American culture and politics.

    Martha Humphreys says: "Witty, wry and wonderfully entertaining..."
    "A Fascinating Life"

    Story

    I've always wanted to spend time with Dick Cavett and now, with this book, I feel I have. Intimate, funny and immensely entertaining. You won't be able to put it down (figuratively, of course).
