Review & Giveaway: Scorpions by Noah Feldman


A tiny, ebullient Jew who started as America's leading liberal and
ended as its most famous judicial conservative. A Klansman who became
an absolutist advocate of free speech and civil rights. A back-country
lawyer who started off trying cases about cows and went on to conduct
the most important international trial ever. A self-invented, tall-tale
Westerner who narrowly missed the presidency but expanded individual
freedom beyond what anyone before had dreamed. 
Four more different men could hardly be imagined. Yet they had certain things in
common. Each was a self-made man who came from humble beginnings on the
edge of poverty. Each had driving ambition and a will to succeed. Each
was, in his own way, a genius. 
They began as close allies and friends of FDR, but the quest to shape a new Constitution led them to
competition and sometimes outright warfare. SCORPIONS tells the story
of these four great justices: their relationship with Roosevelt, with
each other, and with the turbulent world of the Great Depression, World
War II, and the Cold War. It also serves as a history of the modern
Constitution itself.


This is my husbands kind of book. He's really into history and he loved this book. It's a very inspiring book and gives you the courage to try and succeed in anything. If your into history and want to learn more about it this is the book for you!
