Nearly a half-century into being a feminist and legal pioneer, something funny happened to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg: the octogenarian won the internet. Across America, people who weren’t even born when Ginsburg made her name are tattooing themselves with her face, setting her famously searing dissents to music, and making viral videos in tribute. In a class of its own, and much to Ginsburg’s own amusement, is the Notorious RBG Tumblr, which juxtaposes the diminutive but fierce Jewish grandmother with the 350-pound rapper featuring original artwork submitted from around the world.

Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg offers a visually rich, intimate, unprecedented look at the Justice and how she changed the world. From Ginsburg’s refusal to let the slammed doors of sexism stop her to her innovative legal work, from her before-its-time feminist marriage to her perch on the nation’s highest court—with the fierce dissents to match—get to know RBG as never before. As the country struggles with the unfinished business of gender equality and civil rights, Ginsburg stands as a testament to how far we can come with a little chutzpah.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Ruth Bader Ginsburg is not only still on top of her game, she might be at the height of her game right now.”

    Rachel Maddow

  • “A deeply original mashup of pop culture and serious scholarship. I plan to give a copy to both of my daughters.”

    Gilbert King, Pulitzer Prize–winning author

  • “This breezy, fun, and thoughtful take on the life of the Justice explains exactly why a new generation created and embraced the Cult of Ginsburg.”

    Jeffrey Toobin, New York Times bestselling author

  • “It’s the combination of Ginsburg’s woman-hear-me-roar history, her frail-little-old-lady appearance and her role as the leader of the Supreme Court’s dissident liberals that have rallied her new fan base.”

    New York Times on Ruth Bader Ginsburg

  • “Narrator Andi Arndt’s bright, authoritative voice fits the book’s reverent tone. She uses a conversational style to humanize Ginsburg and moves the story along efficiently. Arndt adds excellent diction and comfortable pacing to make this audiobook a satisfying experience.”

    AudioFile

  • “This eponymous—and humorous—book is the third recent publication providing biographical information and paying tribute to Ginsburg’s Supreme Court opinions, with special attention to her famous—and influential—dissents. Coauthors Carmon, an MSNBC journalist who has interviewed RBG, and Knizhnik, recent alumna of New York University School of Law…bring a fresh, appropriately irreverent perspective to scholarship about the justice…the authors successfully situate RBG’s work within a larger historical context, thereby illustrating her central role in advancing equal rights for all.”
