“Shortly after the press reported Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia’s death on February 13, 2016, tributes began pouring in from longtime allies and adversaries alike. One trait that nearly everyone praised was Scalia’s brilliant literary style. The simple goal of this book is to share some of the most powerful, colorful, and entertaining opinions ever written by an American jurist. Scalia’s way with words is what makes this book possible. His opinions employ metaphors, stories, and emotion in ways that frequently carry legal writing into the realm of belles-lettres. His entertaining writing style made it easier to understand and remember his arguments. The opinions chosen for this book are not necessarily Scalia’s most important but those that I believe are the most interesting to read. The opinions in this collection show Scalia’s judicial philosophy in practice, reveal his skill at argumentation, demonstrate his ability to foresee future controversies, and showcase his compelling writing style.”
