"The authors make this unassuming, most studious woman come pulsing to life...'Notorious RBG' may be a playful project, but it asks to be read seriously...That I responded so personally to it is a testimony to [its] storytelling and panache." -- Jennifer Senior, New York Times Carmon and Knizhnik write powerfully about the progression of Ginsburg's legal career. In particular, they make vivid the development of her trademark arguments ... In her fierce honesty, resolute realness, and, yes, innate sense of style (those collars!), Ginsburg emerges as a cultural icon worthy of her own fanbase -- Kate Tuttle, The Boston Globe "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 "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 "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 "This rigorously reported book shines a new light on the groundbreaking cases Ginsburg litigated challenging gender stereotypes." -- Louise Melling, Deputy Legal Director, ACLU "If you admired RBG before, Carmon and Knizhnik will make you fall in love with her, not only as a feminist hero but a human being." -- Vogue "Clark Kent had Superman. Ruth Bader Ginsburg has Notorious R.B.G... Carmon and Knizhnik have turned R.B.G's robe into a cape." -- New York Times Book Review
