    As I mentioned in a recent review of another book, I love discussion of constitutional documents, particularly through the lens of the courts and its interpretation of the document. Discussions of the U.S. Constitution seems easiest for me to access, so I am subjected to a great deal o...

    Justice John Paul Stevens appears to me to be one of those old-timey conservatives, the kind whose judgment I may not agree with but whose opinions I can respect. It?s been awhile since I?ve seen such clear thinking on the part of anyone who calls themselves Republican. Stevens...

    John Paul Stevens (1920---) was appointed to the Supreme Court by Gerald R. Ford (1913-2006) in 1975. In his many years on the Court, Justice Stevens transcended the party ideology to work on issues with all the Justices. Justice Stevens tells of his early life, but the majority of the...

    The Making of a Justice: Reflections on My First 94 Years was a lovely book. This beautiful man, Justice John Paul Stevens, has witnessed so much American history as he sat on the United States Supreme Court for thirty-four years as one of our most beloved jurists. Justice Stevens was ...

    I rarely skim and never give up once I've started, but I clearly didn't understand what I was getting into with this book. I am interested in Justice Stevens because I am a lawyer and we attended the same law school, and he is about my dad's age. So I was interested to know more about ...

    I've read many of his opinions. If this book is even twice as good as those, it will still be great enough to line the bird cage. ...

    Overall, I?m glad I read this. But it was a slog! Early on, he mentioned including several details and stories in part because he thought close friends and grandchildren might enjoy them. While I understand the temptation, as I am not a Supreme Court or John Paul Stevens superfan, no...

    This book is a great telling of the amazing life so far of Justice John Paul Stevens. In it, not a word of negativity in it. Also, not a great deal of gossip or personal story telling about fellow justices in here. JPS addresses each year of his 34 on the Supreme Court and some key dec...

    This book started out interesting but as soon as Justice Stevens started talking about law, I got lost. I think you have to be a lawyer to understand his description of the cases and his opinions on them. I won this book on Goodreads in exchange for an honest review - I'm sorry, but I ...

    Perfect for lawyers and people interested in the Supreme Court. The book contains pictures. Forgot to mention when this was posted earlier that I received this book for free from the Goodreads First Reads program. ...

    Wow what a life and brilliant mind. I bet he will make it another 94 years ! ...

    Justice John Paul Stevens' autobiography expresses his love and respect for the Constitution. Plus, his increasing concern for the traditions and public esteem of the Supreme Court. ...

    The Making of a Justice: Reflections on My First 94 Years was a lovely book. This beautiful man, Justice John Paul Stevens, has witnessed so much American history as he sat on the United States Supreme Court for thirty-four years as one of our most beloved jurists. Justice Stevens was ...

    I rarely skim and never give up once I've started, but I clearly didn't understand what I was getting into with this book. I am interested in Justice Stevens because I am a lawyer and we attended the same law school, and he is about my dad's age. So I was interested to know more about ...

    Overall, I?m glad I read this. But it was a slog! Early on, he mentioned including several details and stories in part because he thought close friends and grandchildren might enjoy them. While I understand the temptation, as I am not a Supreme Court or John Paul Stevens superfan, no...

    This book is a great telling of the amazing life so far of Justice John Paul Stevens. In it, not a word of negativity in it. Also, not a great deal of gossip or personal story telling about fellow justices in here. JPS addresses each year of his 34 on the Supreme Court and some key dec...

    This book started out interesting but as soon as Justice Stevens started talking about law, I got lost. I think you have to be a lawyer to understand his description of the cases and his opinions on them. I won this book on Goodreads in exchange for an honest review - I'm sorry, but I ...

    As I mentioned in a recent review of another book, I love discussion of constitutional documents, particularly through the lens of the courts and its interpretation of the document. Discussions of the U.S. Constitution seems easiest for me to access, so I am subjected to a great deal o...

    Justice John Paul Stevens appears to me to be one of those old-timey conservatives, the kind whose judgment I may not agree with but whose opinions I can respect. It?s been awhile since I?ve seen such clear thinking on the part of anyone who calls themselves Republican. Stevens...

    John Paul Stevens (1920---) was appointed to the Supreme Court by Gerald R. Ford (1913-2006) in 1975. In his many years on the Court, Justice Stevens transcended the party ideology to work on issues with all the Justices. Justice Stevens tells of his early life, but the majority of the...

    The Making of a Justice: Reflections on My First 94 Years was a lovely book. This beautiful man, Justice John Paul Stevens, has witnessed so much American history as he sat on the United States Supreme Court for thirty-four years as one of our most beloved jurists. Justice Stevens was ...

    I rarely skim and never give up once I've started, but I clearly didn't understand what I was getting into with this book. I am interested in Justice Stevens because I am a lawyer and we attended the same law school, and he is about my dad's age. So I was interested to know more about ...

    I've read many of his opinions. If this book is even twice as good as those, it will still be great enough to line the bird cage. ...

    Overall, I?m glad I read this. But it was a slog! Early on, he mentioned including several details and stories in part because he thought close friends and grandchildren might enjoy them. While I understand the temptation, as I am not a Supreme Court or John Paul Stevens superfan, no...

    This book is a great telling of the amazing life so far of Justice John Paul Stevens. In it, not a word of negativity in it. Also, not a great deal of gossip or personal story telling about fellow justices in here. JPS addresses each year of his 34 on the Supreme Court and some key dec...

    This book started out interesting but as soon as Justice Stevens started talking about law, I got lost. I think you have to be a lawyer to understand his description of the cases and his opinions on them. I won this book on Goodreads in exchange for an honest review - I'm sorry, but I ...

    Perfect for lawyers and people interested in the Supreme Court. The book contains pictures. Forgot to mention when this was posted earlier that I received this book for free from the Goodreads First Reads program. ...

    Wow what a life and brilliant mind. I bet he will make it another 94 years ! ...

    Justice John Paul Stevens' autobiography expresses his love and respect for the Constitution. Plus, his increasing concern for the traditions and public esteem of the Supreme Court. ...
