Editorial Reviews

Review

A carefully crafted, high accessibly play-by-play of the complex four-and-a-half year legal battle over the gay and lesbian right to marry. . . . Their clear explanations about the landmark case and the judicial process in general will leave readers well-prepared to follow the subtleties of the discussion as individual states take on the gay marriage issue.
~Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

The authors of Redeeming the Dream have given the reader a very understandable yet detailed account of their mammoth undertaking. As a lawyer, I found the behind the scenes legal story and the explanations of the judicial process fascinating. Any non-lawyer will find this book fascinating because you will come away understanding how and why Mr. Boies and Mr. Olsen were able to accomplish so much and how they have contributed to not only changing the legal landscape of marriage equality but also turning the tide of public opinion. I recommend this book to anyone who believes in love.

A finely written book on a topic that shamefully shouldn't even have to be debated.
I honestly believe that these lawyers found this battle to make a difference in the world, and I think they were successful.
I strongly applaud the book and the cause.

David Boise, Ted Olson, the plaintiffs in this case, and all the people who participated in the years long effort to fight California's Prop 8 should be proud of their hard work and the outstanding result. This book provides so many great insights into how the case came into being, and every step on the journey to the ultimate win...the right for both plaintiff couples to get married, which they were finally able to do in June 2013.

Format: Audible Audio Edition
Not only does it tell the back story of the California Prop 8 case but it provides insight by world class supreme court attorneys on the foundational strategy necessary to target propulsion to the U.S. Supreme Court. Seems to me as a recent law school graduate that this book is a must read for aspiring attorneys. Where else can a legal scholar obtain such a priceless lecture on legal strategy (12 hours with Audible) for under $20.00?

In mostly layman's terms, Olson and Boies have managed to construct a very readable and moving account of their fight to overturn California's infamous proposition 8. At times as gripping as a Grisham courtroom novel, it is even more moving when considered against the background of the actual people's lives it describes. We owe them a great deal of gratitude for their tireless work in changing the course of history in our time.

This is an important issue of this century, told by two of the central characters in its recent developments. An important read if you want to understand how change can be made.

The world is moving forward and Redeeming the Dream outlines the case for civil rights among gay marriage and I am in agreement . This horse has left the barn and is not going back. The country needs to move forward on this issue and worry about more productive problems.
