I was truly disappointed with this book. I was expecting more about her life, insights into her feelings about her accomplishments, and some reflection about the effects of her accomplishments in a historical sense.
Instead, it was mostly a selection of her supreme court decision and speeches, printed in the book for the reader's perusal.

My favorite parts of the book were how Ruth thinks about cases she hears. Those thought processes are fascinating. Of course, the workings of the court were so different from the highly political fashion that the current justices practice. Ruth’s words take on a nostalgic tone. The way she uses women’s rights with examples of men is genius.

A fantastic look into Ruth Bader Ginsburg's Career through her own writings, from editorials in the school newspaper, to Supreme Court Dissents. Always well written, with humor, and someone who can understand all sides of an argument (and disregards that side if its obvious that what they say doesn't make sense, or has a very biased view). I especially like included Opera of Scalia and Ginsburg - Amusing, and shows how two people who disagree can agree.

I especially like the insight into how the Supreme Court decides cases, makes decisions, and generally comes to agreement. Her ACLU cases are incredibly important, showing how there is unfairness (to both sexes) when it comes to laws.

An amazing lady who is one of the few women of her day who actually managed to make a successful career, while having a successful family.

Highly Recomended.

Survey of RBG life as judge including many cases she felt were important. She also gently presents her dissents in several important decisions that roll-back voting rights, women's equality under the law, Roe v W, Citizens United, etc. Especially nice is that the audio book contains her and sometimes her husband's recorded speeches rather than the transcripts presumably contained in the book.
