Publisher's Summary

On July 1, 1987, Judge Robert H. Bork was nominated to the Supreme Court by Ronald Reagan - but by October 23 of that year, his confirmation was denied. In this candid account of his experiences, he describes the Senate Judiciary Committee's hearing from his point of view. He also expounds on his view of politics versus the law, which he was able to see in action, close up, during the second half of 1987.

Bravo

I recently took a Yale class on “hidden” unwritten constitutional rights that had so many holes in logic and reasoning as to be propaganda. This book is solid thinking about modern judge practices that have replaced the rule of law with judges’ personal preferences.
This book is understandable deconstruction of an intentionally murky political process practiced by too many judges.
Should be required for all law students. Excellent listening!

Compelling Read!

If you want a compelling explanation of what is transpiring in our nation today, then this iBook is a must read. Given what we as a nation collectively witnessed during the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings, Robert Bork’s assessment of this process was truthful, brutally truthful. It is also sadly apparent that our Constitutional protections and rule of law, are under attack.

Bork'd??? Really???

Would you consider the audio edition of The Tempting of America to be better than the print version?

only heard the audio. Have to trust that the Honorable Judge uttered what he said.

What did you like best about this story?

The utterance.

Have you listened to any of Robert H. Bork’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

There are virtually no jurists in our time that subscribe to the original intent of the law they are tasked to apply.Judge Bork stands as one who applies, or does not apply the law as it was written, with great regard for the intent.

What is left to compare is an unwaivering devotion to original intent. What was the law meant to address? Does it address this case?? If not, does it apply???

If I cannot reconcile these things, can I rule outside of my own moral beliefs?

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, but your inquiry surely tweaked me!

Any additional comments?

Why do you ask???
