This book is a great introduction to Supreme Court writing. It's a collection of some of Ruth Bader Ginsburg's most interesting and celebrated dissents. What's particularly helpful is that before each dissent, the editor provides context and background to make them clearer. It's intended to introduce a non-lawyer to some of the legal concepts involved. She also points out interesting bits that I might have otherwise missed. For example, in one of the dissents, RBG basically lays out how she thinks a future challenge to the law at hand should be approached to get a better result from the majority of the Justices. It's essentially a blueprint, explaining the way that a future case could get a different result. I wouldn't have realized that's what she was doing if it hadn't been pointed out.
Parts were a bit dense, but overall an enjoyable read.
