Publisher's Summary

A thrilling behind-the-scenes account of the revolutionary Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling.

The Justices Behind Roe V. Wade offers a front-row seat to the inner workings of the Supreme Court that led to the monumental Roe v. Wade decision. Spanning from 1969 to 1972, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Bob Woodward and coauthor Scott Armstrong report on the masterful maneuvering and politicking that affected the court’s decisions and created obstacles for the landmark ruling. Abridged from the number-one best seller The Brethren, this is an exquisite work of reporting on one of the most important rulings of the United States.

Engaging and interesting.

Leave it to Bob to make an otherwise monochromatic and dull topic into something interesting and hard to stop listening to. The narration is also top notch as it turned an otherwise droning topic into something like a science fiction.

The book is well written and offers as a glimpse into the inner workings of an otherwise mysterious organization.
