A visually rich, intimate, unprecedented look at the Justice and how she changed the world. From Ginsburg's refusal to let the slammed doors of sexism stop her to her innovative legal work, from her before-its-time feminist marriage to her perch on the nation's highest court, with the fierce dissents to match, get to know RBG as never before. As the country struggles with the unfinished business of gender equality and civil rights, Ginsburg stands as a testament to how far people can come with a little chutzpah.… (plus d'informations)

I listened to the audiobook using hoopla through my library.

Around the year in 52 books challenge notes:
#31. A book inspired by a leading news story (RBG had just died) ( )

This was a somewhat lighthearted and "popular" biography of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. It wasn't too heavy on legal scholarship, but mostly explained her identity as a person, her general legal philosophy, and some important cases and other interactions. She's not my favorite justice, but of the liberal side, probably my least unfavorite, and this book does a pretty good job of introducing her to the public.

It was written before Obama left office; it would be interesting to know how RBG feels about being on the court today where any presumptive replacement wouldn't merely be middle of the road but fairly right wing. ( )

Last week, I drove across the United States to move from the DC area to New Mexico. This was the very first book I had queued up to listen to. I didn't know much about Ruth Bader Ginsberg prior to this book, other than the very superficial, and I fell in love with the amazingly smart, moral, and determined woman that the authors wrote about.

I will admit that when I first heard about this book, I wasn't sure what to expect. The meme cover and the tongue-in-cheek title made me think this wouldn't be a serious book. I was wrong. The authors conducted a deep look of RBG's life and the book is full of quotes from her family and friends, and the lady herself, who read over the draft book and gave it her approval.

The last hour of the audiobook was particularly hard and painful to listen to. It was the morning of November 9, and I was listening to the authors describe RBG's hope for the 2016 election and that we might elect our first female president in Hillary Clinton. Ouch. That really hurt.

But learning about RBG and her life-long fight and dedication to justice gave me some hope that she will continue to sit on the bench and read her dissents as long as she is able. ( )

A beautiful homage to the wonder that was RBG. This is a light but very enlightening and reverent story of the great woman's many accomplishments and her views on law and society along with some views into her personal life. It's a quick read that is appropriate for absolutely any reader. It's a shame we lost her at such an inopportune time in history, but she had defied so many odds that we really can't complain. RIP RBG.

NOTE: The paper version is highly illustrated which is a part obviously missing from the audio.
