Summary

  • "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"--
  • "Gorsuch: The Judge Who Speaks for Himself is the comprehensive biography of Neil Gorsuch, President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee and, at 49, the youngest judge in 25 years to be nominated to the Supreme Court"--
