Justice Sotomayor's New Book, My Beloved World
If you're following @SCOTUSHUMOR on twitter, then you know that Justice Sotomayor has sole control over fourth place in this term's oral argument laughter standings with five laughs, placing her only five laughs behind Chief Justice Roberts, who is currently in third place. Not a bad showing so far, I'd say. And not surprising either. If you read Justice Sotomayor's new memoir, which comes out this week, not only will you learn about the fascinating early life of the Justice (the memoir ends in 1992, when she is elevated to the federal bench) but you will also get a real sense of her personality, including her not bad at all sense of humor. I give a couple of examples in the review of the book that I did for the Boston Globe, which you might be able to read here. In all seriousness, it is a terrific book--written with style, honesty, and courage. I highly recommend it.
Also, if you're curious about what Justice Sotomayor's confirmation hearing might have been like if it had been held before the 1977 Kansas City Royals instead of the Senate Judiciary Committee, then you could read this.
