[An] insightful judicial biography. . . . Moke’s biography provides an evenhanded appraisal of the Chief Justice’s shortcomings and misjudgments not only while on the bench but in his public service prior to and beyond the high court. An equally important contribution of Moke’s book, possibly of greater value in this reviewer’s estimation, reminds us how the Supreme Court’s approach to the law, often guided by its Chief Justice, matters. . . Hopefully, [the book] will. . . find a home in college and university holdings as well as public libraries; it deserves to be read.
