NO PROOF. As I searched for a new “education” title on Overdrive, the library audiobook of ‘The Education of Brett Kavanaugh’ was immediately available. For the NYT to publish it in that format was simply astounding, and speaks poorly of everyone involved. This is a very slippery slope! Reviewed in the United States on September 17, 2019Given the new recent allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, this is an especially timely book. Your recently viewed items and featured recommendations Having watched the testimony of both Christine Blassey Ford and Kavanaugh, I came away thinking that Ford was a highly credible witness and that Kavanaugh did not handle himself the way a Supreme Court Justice should. The authors have recorded an objective and (as much as possible) exhaustive rendition of the players and the events. This makes it virtually impossible to follow any particular person's claims, accusations or defenses or to easily revisit arguments or evidence previously presented to check continuity and consistency.

Turns out I did not need to relive this a year later. I read through this quickly as it was well written and told gave the facts in a logical, easy to follow fashion. But we may never know for certain, and yet it may not matter.

It seems clear to me that Kavanaugh had a drinking problem, at least during those years, with binge drinking his seeming outlet from the pressure of studies and preparation for what he sought, which was from an early age a seat on the highest court.

)An examination of Supreme Court Justice Bret Kavanaugh’s prep school and Yale experiences as pieced together by two investigative journalists. Reviewed in the United States on September 17, 2019 I was hoping for a deeper exploration of the high school and collegiate cultures that characterized Brett Kavanaugh's education experiences.

The two New York Times reporters, Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, who wrote this book certainly stirred up interest in it. Fairly hot off the presses, I was intrigued as I only barely followed this sizzling news story of 2018 while the hubs was riveted by the confirmation hearings on TV. I doubt this was at the bA very thorough recapitulation of the events of Justice Kavanaugh's confirmation.   If one thinks the FBI takes sides, the side they take is liberal, not conservative, and they thoroughly investigated these accusations and found NO PROOF, no credible witnesses. But: Pogrebin and Kelly conclude by explaining that - as journalists - they can never know for certain what happened between Kavanaugh and Ford, nor between Kavanaugh and Deborah Ramirez (the other accuser).

We’d love your help. I was expecting something more in the vein of Joan Biskupic or Jeffrey Toobin reporting on the judiciary, but what I got was more like a compilation of information from front page newspaper articles. In the past year, I had some difficulty reading about sex crimes.

Published It was enlightening to see some followup with corroborating witnesses.

], you also have to get into all manner of discussion of whether Yale or Georgetown Prep was the sort of place this kind of thing happened, whether private school culture led to a sense of entitlement........This book is basically a summary of the Kavanaugh confirmation; there isn't a lot of new information or analysis beyond what has already been reported. I support Dr. Ford and I believe Brett Kavanaugh is guilty of everything she accused him of.

by Portfolio Kind of disappointing, really...if you followed the story fairly closely while it was happening, you probably won't learn anything new from this booThis book is basically a summary of the Kavanaugh confirmation; there isn't a lot of new information or analysis beyond what has already been reported.
