Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 6-9This irritatingly adulatory biography makes too much of Ginsburg's unquestionably difficult climb to become the second woman justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. The text is constructed entirely from secondary sources, citing material from several books about female lawyers and the judicial system to establish the social and political background of Ginsburg's nomination, and relying on a great many periodical articles replete with ``I knew her when'' stories as sources for personal information. The result is a rambling, sometimes repetitive testimonial to the subject as an icon of womanhood. Ironically, Ginsburg the lawyer spent much of her groundbreaking career trying to bring about equal treatment of the sexes by smashing pedestals reserved for women. Average-quality, black-and-white photographs are scattered throughout. Better books about Ginsburg are bound to come along.Claudia Morrow, Berkeley Public Library, CA
