KIRKUS REVIEW

A man whose genius was the law does not lend himself too well to biography, for after all his own works in his own field are his best memorial. However, the biographer has done a fair job for popular consumption, with distressingly little cooperation on the part of those closest to Cardozo. Cut the book in half, let Cardozo's own charming notes, and various human bits about him carry the balance of weight, and it would be a better book. As it is, Cardozo emerges as the fine, likeable human being he was, but the legal aspects suffer substantially from inaccuracies.
