Title: "The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court"

Author: Jeffrey Toobin

Publisher: Doubleday

Pages: 369

Price: $27.95

In a Nutshell: In an entertaining, engaging style, legal analyst Toobin writes about the current justices of the U.S. Supreme Court and some of their more important cases. He even discusses the habits and personalities of those who preside over the court of nine. Unfortunately, he cannot reveal his sources, said to be current or former clerks, and a few of the justices themselves. Toobin is a little too sure of himself and makes historical judgments that may not stand the test of time.
