Posner on "How Judges Think"

The latest book from the brilliant and preternaturally productive Judge Posner is entitled How Judges Think.  The goal of Posner's effort is, in his own words, to provide a “cogent, unified, realistic, and appropriately eclectic account of how judges actually arrive at their decisions in nonroutine cases."  For an in-depth and rather negative review of the book by commentator Ed Whelan see here  (the review is actually a compilation of some of Whelan's posts on Benchmemos, so if by chance you've read those you know his arguments).
