A brief history of RBG

This was a short bio on RBG starting with her family's immigration story and ending with her death. There were some great details I didn't know and it corrects certain literary license taken with the movie covering one part of her life. This audio book would have been so much better if the narrator had any gift for reading aloud. She sounds like a bored student forced to read a passage aloud in class who only speaks the words on the page without any understanding of or appreciation for the material.

Biography of an Icon

I loved this biography of the brilliant an ground-breaking Supreme Court justice. I've read other books about RBG which carefully chronicled all of her many meaningful and groundbreaking cases but this one provides a good deal more information about Ginsberg the woman - the daughter, wife, mother, mentor an friend. It's a warm, sometimes funny and always inspiring look at the woman who overcame adversity, including multiple battles with cancer and her constant fight for justice, fairness and equal rights.
A must read for anyone who wishes to understand how the U.S. equal rights movement got to where it is, and how much it has to lose.

A very insightful biography of Ruth Bader

What a great audiobook and what an incredible woman. I knew very little about Ruth Bader and only recently was curious to find out more when I came across this audiobook. A real inspiration for others especially young women. Ruth never gave up and fought for what she believed in. I like the way the book covers all aspects of Ruth's life of setting the scene growing up in Brooklyn, her ongoing struggle for equality, being a mother, a wife and having a full time career which wasn't easy. A real inspiration to all. A must listen to.
