"In seven revealing interviews, the late US supreme court justice sheds light on her astonishing career in a profession once the preserve of men"

It’s a virtue of the book that the interviews range from those focusing heavily on her judicial work, to one with, for example, a group of high-school students, in which Bader Ginsburg is much more playful, to the transcript of an interview she did at a synagogue in Washington DC, in which she talks about the importance of her faith. In the interview with the students, she refers to how, as a girl, she dreamed of becoming an opera singer; however, “in my grade school, I was put in with the – they were called sparrows as opposed to the robins, and I was told to mouth the words. So being a great diva was not in the cards for me.”
