Praise

“Will likely stand as the definitive Brandeis biography for many years.”
The Boston Globe

“Utterly fascinating . . . Urofsky’s remarkable book has innumerable passages that amaze . . . [It] captures the sweep and the details of that life with what has to be called devotion . . . his achievement is remarkable.”
—Anthony Lewis, The New York Review of Books
 
“A commendably exhaustive work.”
The New Yorker
 
“Melvin Urofsky’s lapidary new biography is a rich study of a remarkable life.”
The Economist

“Conveys the vast scope of Brandeis’s fascinating life with energy, verve and immediacy. . . Brandeis comes alive as a passionate progressive who dedicated his life and career to improving the lives of others. Comprehensive and highly readable.” 
Chicago Tribune
 
“[A] monumental, authoritative and appreciative biography of the man Franklin D. Roosevelt called “Isaiah” . . . [Urofsky] demonstrates, deploying a Brandeisan array of factual material, why Brandeis still matters, nearly 70 years after his death.”
—Alan M. Dershowitz, New York Times Book Review
 
“A comprehensive biography of an American legal giant. . . likely to become the standard biography. . .An authoritative, impressive assessment of a man whose legal reasoning continues to influence our republic.”
Kirkus Reviews (starred)
