I want to start by saying that this book is probably better consumed through physical copy or e-book. Periodically throughout the audiobook I’d hear, “For additional commentary, please see the enhanced portion of this audiobook.” But I have no idea where to find the “enhanced portion,” so I feel like I missed out on a lot.
This non-fiction work was a general overview of the life and work of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Supreme Court Justice and all-around badass! If you’re a fan of RBG, you’ll enjoy this book. If you’re looking for an in depth, detailed story and explanation of RBG’s life and work, this is not the book for you.
After reading this, I have a newfound appreciation and admiration for Justice Ginsburg. I admit that I didn’t know much about her before, except that she can do more pushups than I can! So I enjoyed learning about her family, her previous law work, and her fights on the Supreme Court.
Memorable quotes: none*
*Note: RBG herself has some fantastic quotes, but as they were not germane to this book, I did not include them here.
