Reviews

"Breyer offers a cogent explanation of judicial reasoning, focusing particularly on the difference between textualism--now dominating the current Court--and pragmatism, which is his guiding principle. . . . A deeply informed analysis of judicial history."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"A dissent for the ages."--Ruth Marcus "The Washington Post"
"Breyer's candor about the state of the court is refreshing and much needed."--Kimberly Atkins Stohr "Boston Globe"
"A rocket from a Supreme Court justice who served 28 years on the Court. Justice Breyer shows how the current Supreme Court's alleged textualism and originalism are unsound. His book is a judicial arms-control agreement advocating moderation and a path to what he calls 'workable democracy.' You will not read a more important legal work this election year."--Bob Woodward, Washington Post reporter and author of 15 #1 New York Times bestselling books
