Click for availability and more information The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court, by Jeffrey Toobin

Jeffrey Toobin's newest book, The Nine, has received great reviews and is included on, among other lists, The New York Times Best Books of 2007. After reading The Nine, it is easy to understand why Toobin has garnered such acclaim. With his background as legal correspondent for CNN, Toobin analyzes the Rehnquist and Roberts Supreme Court with a clarity that makes complicated legal issues and procedures very understandable. Toobin's interpretation of the Supreme Court justices' personalities and legal philosophies at times literally bounce off the pages and make for very compelling reading. Perhaps the best knowledge one can learn from this great book is the unique position of power the President of the United States has in shaping for years the actions of the Supreme Court through the appointments made to the Court. This is a highly recommended book, especially in the coming year when the election to the Presidency is being hotly contested.
