Praise

“The best legal read . . . in decades. A brilliantly entertaining work, both for the lawyer and the layman.”
Washington Times

“The captivating story of a boy who grew up to be one of the nation’s top attorneys.”
The Wall Street Journal

“In more than 40 years as a lawyer, Bob Bennett has been at the center of many of Washington’s most politically-charged legal dramas. In the Ring, written with poignancy and persuasion, is a great read with its rich portrait of his early life and fascinating tour through the high-profile cases that have defined Bob’s career. Bob is dedicated to his clients, fair to his adversaries, and clear in what he believes is right and wrong when politics and law collide.”
—President Bill Clinton

In the Ring is an extraordinary tale by an extraordinarily gifted trial lawyer. Bob Bennett’s story takes us from Brooklyn to the U.S. Supreme Court with drama and suspense packed in between. Wonderful history for lawyers and non-lawyers alike.”
—Former Senator Warren B. Rudman, author of Combat: Twelve Years in the U.S. Senate

“Bob Bennett is not only a towering presence in the legal world, he is a charming, entertaining and outgoing personality, full of life, passion and warmth. In the Ring is a riveting account of an exciting career, featuring many of the most colorful and intriguing characters of our era. He has done everyone a great service in bringing his experiences and clients to life in such a vivid chronicle. I’m already looking forward to the sequel.”
—Theodore B. Olson, former United States Solicitor General

“Bob Bennett has written a fascinating inside account of some of the biggest Washington scandals and controversies of our era. As a what-happened and a how-to, In the Ring is indispensable.”
—Jeffrey Toobin, author of The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court

“From his days as a high school debater, which Bob Bennett charmingly confesses gave him ‘no stud points,’ to his time waxing the floors and cleaning the toilets of the Trane Corporation to put himself through Georgetown, to his shining hour before the U.S. Supreme Court representing the 42nd President of the United States in a case involving alleged perjury, Oval Office sex, and all the trappings of power–this personal and personable page-turner will immerse you painlessly in what would have to be called a great life in the law. Finishing it reminded me of the New Yorker cartoon in which a nattily dressed man, introducing himself to a pretty young thing at a cocktail party, tells her, ‘Yes, I am a lawyer. But not in the pejorative sense.’”
—Laurence Tribe, Professor, Harvard Law School
