Sonia Sotomayor “My Beloved World” Reviewed by Jay Wexler at The Boston Globe

The Jay Wexler review of “My Beloved World” by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor is definitely worth a read if you are deciding whether to get -- and read -- the book.

Wexler writes inter alia:
"President Obama was famously (and ludicrously) barraged with criticism for pointing to Sotomayor’s “empathy” in support of her nomination. It turns out that empathy is a major theme of the justice’s memoir. It is only when “people can’t imagine someone else’s point of view” that “things break down.” Empathy, the author explains, is a product of listening closely to the words and needs of others."
We could use a bit more of that at the U.S. Supreme Court and in Congress.
