Publisher Description

New York Times Bestseller

Featured in the critically acclaimed documentary RBG

"It was beyond my wildest imagination that I would one day become the 'Notorious RBG." — Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 2019

She was a fierce dissenter with a serious collar game. A legendary, self-described “flaming feminist litigator” who made the world more equal. And an intergenerational icon affectionately known as the Notorious RBG. As the nation mourns the loss of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, discover the story of a remarkable woman and learn how to carry on her legacy.

This runaway bestseller, brought to you by the attorney founder of the Notorious RBG Tumblr and an award-winning feminist journalist, is more than just a love letter. It draws on intimate access to Ginsburg's family members, close friends, colleagues, and clerks, as well as an interview with the Justice herself. An original hybrid of reported narrative, annotated dissents, rare archival photos and documents, and illustrations, the book tells a never-before-told story of an unusual and transformative woman who transcended divides and changed the world forever.

Quotes

  • “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.”
