Reviews

These memoirs combine a moving family history with an account of how it was and, maybe, is still possible to make one's way from an ordinary background to the top of the judiciary, and an acute assessment of the political and legal issues facing us all today... Lord Dyson bridges the gap between the legal reader and the member of the public, and both will gain a clearer understanding of the world around us from his account. -- Baroness Ruth Deech DBE QC(Hon)
John Dyson's A Judge's Journey is the finest public intervention by a retired senior jurist since Bingham. Without a second's pomposity, he shares his personal voyage for all readers interested in human rights and decency in a tempest-tossed world. -- Baroness Shami Chakrabarti
Not just a fascinating and revealing insider's view of the cases and controversies that dominated the justice system at the start of the millennium, A Judge's Journey shows how the bright son of working-class and immigrant parents could make it to a great office of state that has been occupied continuously since the thirteenth century. -- Joshua Rozenberg QC (hon)
This is a warm and generous book by a fine judge whose humanity shines through in every page. It deserves to find a wide readership. -- The Right Hon Lord Lloyd-Jones, Justice of The Supreme Court * Middle Templar *
John Dyson's memoir combines humility, humanity and historical context. This is a rare gift, including among recently unplugged justices of the United Kingdom's highest court. -- Rachel Holmes * The New Statesman *
Clear, candid and compelling, a memoir for our times. -- Professor Philippe Sands QC
I love the legal mind and anyone who loves that will love this book. The lucidity with which ideas are expressed and the way in which anecdotes centre on their most important elements make this book an absolute delight and an intellectual tonic. -- Lord Finkelstein
