Publisher Annotation: Learn all about Neil Gorsuch, the youngest judge to be nominated to the Supreme Court in twenty-five years, with this comprehensive and fascinating biography. When forty-nine-year-old Neil Gorsuch was nominated to the Supreme Court by President Donald Trump, he was told by a senator, “We need to know what’s in your heart.” Now, acclaimed author John Greenya seeks to answer that question with this captivating book. Born in Colorado, Gorsuch remains somewhat of a mystery to Democrats and Republicans alike. Based on intense research and interviews with people who have known Gorsuch in all periods of his life, both his opponents and his friends—from his early work as a lawyer and his year as a Justice Department official, to his ten-and-a-half years on the Federal bench, this is the best way to learn more about the conservative replacement to Justice Antonin Scalia. 256pp., 50K
Journal Reviews
Library Journal | 03/01/2018
Greenya, the author of several books on Washington politics, here focuses on Neil Gorsuch, the newest justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. Greenya is also the coauthor of a book by Justice Gorsuch's mother, Anne Burford, the controversial head of the EPA during the Ronald Reagan administration. In this book, the author explores the judge's life through his nomination and confirmation to the Court. The book details Justice Gorsuch's political and legal influences, including his parents, whose links to the Republican Party led them to Washington for the Reagan administration. Gorsuch's early time in Washington had a profound impact on his political and professional future, and the author traces this influence through the rest of the book. There is little speculation on what kind of justice Gorsuch might be, but this work provides a careful exploration of the judge's legal philosophy. VERDICT For general readers interested in the newest Supreme Court justice. Public libraries building collections on the Supreme Court should take note, but academic and law libraries may want to find something more scholarly. Becky Kennedy, Atlanta-Fulton P.L. 272p. LIBRARY JOURNAL, c2018.
