Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg never asked for fame -- she was just trying to make the world a little better and a little freer. But along the way, the feminist pioneer's searing dissents and steely strength have inspired millions. Notorious RBG takes you behind the myth for an intimate, irreverent look at the justice's life and work. As America struggles with the unfinished business of gender equality and civil rights, Ginsburg stays fierce. And if you don't know, now you know.

This was a seriously disappointing tribute to a phenomenal justice. It was neither particularly readable (filled with complex legal language) nor engaging. Look for My Own Words for a better picture of this remarkable woman. A lover of language, and student of Vladimir Nabokov at Cornell University, her life should read in her own fine words.

If you don't know who Ruth Bader Ginsburg is, you are missing out. She has been a GIANT in the women's rights movement, but not only has she been making life better for females, she is making this world a better place for EVERYONE! Originally I thought this might be a difficult read, with a lot of legal jargon, but I was struck, page after page, by how much RBG's passion is woven into everything she does.

Staunch: adjective. 1. Very loyal and committed. 2. Of sturdy construction. This is RBG. And this is a wonderfully creative book about her. A must read for anyone who cares about equality for all and RBG's mission to make it happen.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is fascinating and amazing and so interesting to read about. I also loved the art and photos throughout, the annotated decisions, and the other small but interesting details peppered throughout the book. Read this because we have a national treasure on our Supreme Court right now, and you may think you know how great she is, but this book will school you.

The format of this book is nearly as fun and interesting as "RBG" herself!

If you love Ruth Bader Ginsburg (and who doesn’t?!), then you’ll love this book. While she is most known for her judicial career, Ruth Bader Ginsburg has a lot of fascinating things going on in her life. The book describes her wonderful marriage to Marty Ginsburg, her strong friendship with Scalia, her workout routine, and her thoughtful and sometime scathing judicial rulings. This book is a great look at a true trailblazer, and someone who always fights for what she believes in.

I read the book about Sandra Day O'Connor and RBG (Sisters in Law) on the court. Loved it. This book did not give me the same joy and satisfaction. In fact a lot of it was BORING.

While I enjoyed this more as a pop culture phenomenon (yay for books born on tumblr!) than an actual biography, it's an entertaining overview and introduction to a trailblazing woman as well as landmark court cases and legal matters. It's a fun, accessible, and humanizing profile of an influential woman.

I really loved this book; and of course I love the subject, Ruth Bader Ginsburg = the Notorious RBG! What a wonderful and inspiring role model she is for all of us. I found this book to be a fun, easy read with some great graphics/artwork, photos & quotes interspersed throughout the book; they highlight the internet & social media phenomenon she's become (in these past couple of years) for younger generations who are finding out who she is & what she's given to our country. Though this book has a certain light feel to it, the content...her actual story and what's she's achieved and influenced in her lifetime is serious as all get-out! Pick up this grand nod to a very important figure for not only women in this country but for everyone who believes in equality & justice for all.
