Many Americans knows little about the highest court in the land. That's why this history by America's first woman on the Court is valuable. Bernadette Dunne's pleasant voice imparts the writer's knowledge--and entertains at the same time. While one is learning anew about the Court, one also hears anecdotes about its personage--such as the famous Justice who was nearly impeached because of his unusual way of handling some matters. Naturally, O'Connor talks about women past and present, including the Suffragettes and their movement's effects on the Court, and others in the field of law. Dunne sounds committed to the text, and one quickly forgets she's not the Judge. One begins to visualize a gentle woman adorned in a black robe, teaching but not lecturing, about how our High Court helps make our legal system the best in the world. A.L.H.
