REVIEW OF THE SECOND EDITION OF "THE SUPREME COURT OPINIONS OF CLARENCE THOMAS, 1991-2011"

In the several years that the first edition of my book about Justice Thomas's opinions has been available, and in the several months since the second edition has been published, I have not circulated any of the many favorable reviews that I've received.

I'm making an exception this time for a Kindle review written last month because it succinctly captures what I was trying to accomplish.  The review follows..........

At a time when a sitting Supreme Court Justice (Ginsburg) suggests that the US Constitution is not an appropriate model for constitution drafting in the year 2010, this book demonstratively proves that Justice Clarence Thomas reveres, and remains true to, the words of our constitution.  This is an excellent book, written so that it can be understood by lawyers and non-lawyers alike.  (My emphasis.)


One wishes that it were required reading in schools--because it so ably discusses the history of our founding documents and shows why Justice Thomas is a worthy role model for future Justices.  This book is especially well-suited for reading on an iPad (via the Kindle app).  When read electronically, it is effortless to toggle between sections that are so meaningful that they beg to be reread.
