    As someone who once worked with Justice Scalia before his time on the Supreme Court, this collection, read flawlessly by his son Christopher, gives an accurate glimpse of his judicial philosophy, his humor, and his very human qualities. He was a towering figure on the Court, a brilliant intellect coupled with a puckish sense of humor, and a truly wonderful human being to spend time with.
