[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. - New York Times
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)
“Melvin Urofsky’s lapidary new biography is a rich study of a remarkable life.” - The Economist
Will likely stand as the definitive Brandeis biography for many years. - The Boston Globe
