Five Chiefs by John Paul Stevens

When he resigned in June 2010, Justice Stevens was the third longest-serving Justice in American history (1975-2010) — only Justice William O. Douglas, whom Stevens succeeded, and Stephen Field have served on the Court for a longer time. In Five Chiefs, Justice Stevens captures the inner workings of the Supreme Court via his personal experiences with the five Chief Justices — Fred Vinson, Earl Warren, Warren Burger, William Rehnquist, and John Roberts — that he interacted with.
