    1. I received this book free through First Reads program.Redeeming the Dream details the road to the Supreme Court in the fight against California s Proposition 8, which banned same sex marriage The authors, who were the lead attorneys for the plaintiffs in the case, do an excellent job of introducing the key players in funding the effort and the reasoning that lead to the decision to bring in the attorneys known for opposing each other in Bush v Gore, as well as explaining why they took the case T [...]


    2. Great book that chronicles the defeat of California s Proposition 8 It is told in easy to understand text Talks about the key players of the movement to defeat Proposition 8 and the trial and appeal that followed.


    3. This is a fascinating look at California s Prop 8 case and all of the people involved Well written and easy to follow, this account makes it clear that this case was monumental not only because of the results, but because of the people involved.


    4. This book details the coming together of two attorneys from opposite sides of the political fence to fight for something they both believe in This could have been a boring textbook, but each lawyer has his say and does it very well.


    5. I really loved this In addition to being both emotional and inspiring, this book provides such interesting insight on the time, effort, and talent required to bring a case before the Supreme Court I personally love getting a glimpse into the personalities of some of the greatest legal minds in America today.


    6. what a well written and clear narration to the journey of advocacy and opposition to California s prop 8 ammendment after reading this book I feel I am capable of explaining both the legality and the social implications of this case.


    7. This caught my eye at the library last week Proposition 8 is the first time I remember feeling really passionate about an issue, and I was so upset when it passed I recently read Homophobia A History, and I think that book primed me to read this book.Given that it did involve my state, and it s such a huge issue and was resolved two years ago, I really wanted to know and felt that I should know Marriage equality is in front of SCOTUS again this year.I was amazed at how little I knew about this [...]


    8. Recaps the case David Boies and Ted Olson argued all the way to Supreme Court to overturn Prop 8 in California, paving the way for marriage equality Goes over their main arguments a lot, the legal precedents they cited and the life details of the two plaintiff couples a little.This is a tricky one for me I agree 1,001 percent with the authors on their main points and was delighted with the outcome of their work So I would think it would be like reading a recap of the year the Bullets now Wizards [...]


    9. I saw the authors make an appearance on The Colbert Report, and their interview is what caused me to pick up this book It was a really neat book, and I m glad that I read it The friendship forged by Boies and Olson, who were opposing attorneys in the Supreme Court in the Gore v Bush case, was extremely interesting and it set the course for the story Together they joined forces to wage war against Proposition 8, which was the law passed in California in 2008 that banned same sex marriage The book [...]


    10. I thought this book was remarkably easy to understand, given that the authors are the chief lawyers who argued against Prop 8 in court It s a really clear look at the case from the inside, and the four individual chapters written separately by the lawyers two each are fascinating The Why I Took the Case chapters especially EveryONE should read Ted Olson s chapter, because he eloquently explains why conservatives should eagerly support equal marriage rights for everyone You could skip this and re [...]


    11. An interesting and readable book Both the topic, Marriage Equality, and following a court case from pre trial all the way to the USA Supreme Court With stops at a local city hall to be denied a marriage license to a Federal District Court, to US Appeals Court, to the California Supreme Court odd, track, yes USA Appeals Court wanted California Supreme Court to weigh in on who had standing in California, or by California law, to argue for California Law when the government officials refuse to defe [...]


    12. Redeeming the Dream recounts the case against California s Proposition 8 by the lead attorneys on the plaintiff s side This book was very informational and a fascinating read I commend the author s work making this book well written, easily readable and packed full of information Recommended for anyone interested in Supreme Court cases and or LGBT rights.I have received this book for free through Firstreads program.


    13. If you re just interested in the outcome of the case it is in the newspapers If you want to know how and why the case for marriage equality was made, some of the answers are here Since the main actors wrote this book, their view probably suffer from being too close to the action But this is a case that those opposed to marriage equality ought to read and think about, even if it doesn t alter their point of view.


    14. If you re looking for an in depth account of Prop 8 at the Supreme Court, this is not your book But if you re interested in the process of mounting a challenge like this, then this is the book for you A very well written account not just of how the Prop 8 challenge was mounted, start to finish, but also of the process generally, with Prop 8 as the case study.


    15. Enjoyed this book way than I expected I am by now means a political or legal junkie but I loved hearing about this case through the lawyers point of view The did a fantastic job of making this accessible but also did not dumb it down.


    16. first read book I thought it was well written and was a good history of the situation Would have liked input from the couples the suit was brought to court for but maybe they ll write something when the whole gay marriage issue is solved




    17. This book would have been interesting as just a behind the scenes story of the trial and then an epilogue of what happened at the Ninth Circuit and Supreme Court
