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.
John Greenya, a widely respected Washington-based writer, and the author or coauthor of more than two dozen books, writes frequently about the law. His books include: Gorsuch: The Judge Who Speaks for Himself; The Real David Stockman; Blood Relations; and Silent Justice: The Clarence Thomas Story. His collaborations include Law and Justice in the Reagan Administration (with former US Attorney General William French Smith), For the Defense (with F. Lee Bailey), Are You Tough Enough? (with Anne Gorsuch Burford, Judge Neil Gorsuch’s mother), and Not Guilty: The Unlawful Prosecution of US Senator Ted Stevens (with Robert Cary). His writing on the law and true crime has appeared in The Washington Post, and his work has appeared in such other publications as The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, The New Republic, People, and USA TODAY, among others.
“John Greenya’s book offers readers something the confirmation hearings did not — the backstory of Neil Gorsuch, his childhood, his family, his education and, ultimately, a glimpse of who Justice Gorsuch is…Greenya’s biography is a good place to start understanding the judge who speaks for himself.”
