Book Review: Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg
AUTHOR: Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik
PUBLISHED: October 2015
PREMISE: Biography about Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
MY REVIEW: If you are on tumblr, you likely know about the Notorious RBG tumblr that started awhile back. The author of the tumblr got together with someone and they created a biography about Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
As far as bios go, this does its job well. It gives you lots of background on Ginsburg. It goes into her childhood, to her time in law school, to eventually becoming Supreme Court Justice. It's very informative, there are lots of pictures, and it's a fast read. It's a little biased, I'll admit. But most biographies tend to be.
If you're in the mood for a biography about a fascinating figure, this is a good one to look into.
WHO SHOULD READ: those who like biographies, those interested in politics/Ruth Bader Ginsburg
MY RATING: Four out of Five awesome women
