Urofsky has captured the essence of Brandeis in his excellent and informative volume. Urofsky often demonstrates a fine facility for clarifying points and positions with meaningful factual details.His book reveals the depth of scholarship that one would expect from a co-editor of the five volume collection of Brandeis' letters."He recognized the importance of the relationship between Brandeis and Frankfurter and devoted an entire small chapter to their efforts to promulgate their views as described by Bruce Murphy. For a concise but telling biography of Brandeis, from the "people's attorney" to one of the Supreme Court's " nine old men", Urofsky's book is an excellent choice.
