If your opinion of Associate Justice Clarence Thomas is based on liberal media's portrayal of his character and intellect or is based on his Senate confirmation hearings more than 20 years ago, then this book as well as Justice Thomas' own autobiography should enlighten you and hopefully change your opinion.

The author sets the tone of this concise review of Justice Thomas' some 450 Supreme Court opinions on the dedication page stating: "To Clarence Thomas, the keeper of the flame ignited on July 4, 1776, September 17, 1787, and December 15, 1791." The author examines a number of Justice Thomas' opinions on issues of separation of powers, federalism, judicial review, freedom of speech, free exercise of religion, etc. adroitly weaving in portions of the opinions to support why Justice Thomas is appropriately interpreting the U.S. Constitution by relying on the founders' reasoning at the time the Constitution was being drafted and debated as well as at the time the federal government was being formed.

After reading Justice Thomas' autobiography some time ago, I was impressed with his personal story, background, and character. From his autobiography, it was interesting to learn that Justice Thomas as a young adult was closer politically to Jesse Jackson than William F. Buckley, Jr. This short, well-annotated volume provides the reader with insight into the reasoning as expounded in the writings of one Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. I think it should be required reading for constitutional law students across the nation. I was surprised to learn that some of Justice Thomas' more significant opinions are his dissenting opinions. Because of this book, I plan to read some of Justice Thomas' prior opinions as well as opinions to be issued at the close of the Court's 2011-2012 term.

At a time when a sitting Supreme Court Justice (Ginsburg) suggests that the US Constitution is not an appropriate model for constitution drafting in the year 2010, this book demonstratively proves that Justice Clarence Thomas reveres, and remains true to, the words of our constitution. This is an excellent book, written so that it can be understood by lawyers and non-lawyers alike. One wishes that it were required reading in schools -- because it so ably discusses the history of our founding documents and shows why Justice Thomas is a worthy role model for future Justices. This book is especially well-suited for reading on an iPad (via the Kindle App). When read electronically, it is effortless to toggle between sections that are so meaningful that they beg to be reread.

Rare is the person who has integrity and purpose. As Mark Henry
Holzer demonstrates in this book, Clarence Thomas is such a man.

As someone not trained in the law, I was a bit intimidated by the
prospect of reading a book on constitutional law.

My concern was unfounded. Holzer writes clearly and precisely
and presents the material such that it is understandable, and
enjoyable, for the non-professional.

I would have given the book 4 1/2 stars (1/2 star off for not
presenting more material) but that option was not available.
