From School Library Journal:

Gr 6 Up--Typical series fare, these brief but fact-filled volumes will be useful for reports. While offering some personal information, both titles emphasize the subjects' years on the Supreme Court and the far-reaching effects of their judicial opinions. As the authors don't delve deeply into their subjects' personalities, psyches, and day-to-day lives, the books are not very lively reading. Both authors retain a fair amount of objectivity, even when discussing volatile issues and controversial decisions, and Feinberg is highly successful in conveying the tremendous impact John Marshall had on the U.S. judicial system. The texts are well documented, yet Freedman makes generalizations that cannot be substantiated, e.g., ``There were slaves in every house in Maryland.'' Each title includes extensive notes; accurate but limited indexes; and mediocre black-and-white photos and reproductions. Taney also suggests sources for additional information, including where to write for a copy of the original Dred Scott Decision of 1857.
