#61 — The Notorious RBG

The Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg by Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik
Rating: 3/5
  • Most of the chapters in the book are typical of a biography. Others are a little weird, like the chapters on Ginsberg’s workout regime and the types of elaborate collars she owns. The first chapter is about the tumblr page that made her popular (the book was co-written by the originator of said tumbler page, so no surprise there)
  • Interspersed throughout the book are landmark cases and RBG’s opinions on them. They also include commentary by the authors to clarify certain statements but mostly to gush about RBG’s strategy and overall awesomeness
  • If the note from her dying husband doesn’t move you, I’m not sure anything will
