"O'Connor gets down to the nitty-gritty of her profession." (Library Journal)
"O'Connor's book is an engagingly written civics lesson, delivering a warm appreciation of legal history." (Publishers Weekly)
As someone interested in the law (I'm starting law school this fall), I was fascinated by Justice O'Connor's book. She gives her views on judicial interpretation, areas she thinks our justice system can be improved, her personal experience and views on sufferage and women's rights, all mixed in with a solid look at legal history in the U.S.
As a Supreme Court Justice and former Senator, she's obviously earned expert status whether or not you agree with her disposition or not.
I particularly liked her criticisms of the jury system, along with her ideas on what can be done about it. The only weakness of the book is that she is occassionaly repetetive. But overall a great book that is well narrarated.
