Rohit Reviews: The Nine

The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court

When I moved to New York several weeks ago, I decided to impose a moratorium on the purchase of new books.

And it's about time, too: things around here have totally been falling apart since I went merrily off to law school some three years back.
