    Description2009 should be a watershed year for the U.S. Supreme Court. Justice John Paul Stevens - who is 87 - is expected to retire, setting up a fierce confirmation battle in the Senate. With a new president in office, there will be heightened publicity about the future direction of the high court-making this a propitious time for a book that looks at the lives, personalities, and history of this exclusive club. In keeping with the tradition of the "Secret Lives" series, "Secret Lives of the Supreme Court" will take an irreverent, unvarnished look at the men and women who have sat in this august body over the centuries. It will uncover all the embarrassing secrets, little-known facts, and unusual biographical details about some of America's most famous (and infamous) judges.
