Reviews

"Fast-paced, fair-minded, and news-making, Ruth Marcus's Supreme Ambition goes behind the scenes with all sides in the confirmation battle over Brett Kavanaugh and tells a revealing tale about judges, justice, and the future of the Supreme Court."
-- Jeffrey Toobin, New York Times bestselling author of The Nine and American Heiress

"Ruth Marcus's Supreme Ambition is at once an electrifying account of a flawed judicial nomination and a revealing study of morally corrupt Republicans, and at times politically inept Democrats, in a dysfunctional U.S. Senate."
-- David Maraniss, Pulitzer Prize winning author of Barack Obama: The Story and First in His Class

"Shrewd, fair, and surprising, both a morality play and a political knife fight, this tale explains how we got here, and challenges us to think about how to adapt our institutions to forces that threaten them."
-- Nancy Gibbs, New York Times bestselling coauthor of The Presidents Club

"Very tough but fair-minded, a wise history. Clearly the best of the Kavanaugh books."
-- Bob Woodward, New York Times bestselling author of Fear: Trump in the White House
"Extraordinarily detailed and highly insightful."
-- Washington Post

"Impressively reported, highly insightful and a rollicking good read."
-- New York Times Book Review

"Powerful, meticulously researched...An illuminating and evenhanded look at an incendiary event."
-- Kirkus Reviews
