“What a wonderful book: The annotated dissents! The knockout photos! Why she likes to write through the night! The litany of big cases she won as a lawyer, and how she picked them! How she made Bill Clinton cry! Notorious RBG is a laugh-out-loud joy to read.”
— Rachel Maddow

“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, author of The Oath and The Nine

“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 of Devil in the Grove
