"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.

    Who wrote this? A ten year old? There were about 60 pages of useful information demonstrating why RBG was such a great woman, the rest was like a picture book. Save your money and just google her name.

    By Prophet Amos
    History at times inflates one’s reputation, while witholding their true ideals, as is the case of RBG. She was truly notorious, her idol was one Judge Dorothy Kenyon, a secret Communist. Kenyon was a liberal judge in New York City during the 1940s - 1950s.

    RGB is an astounding person, and every human on this planet can learn something from reading this book. Her mantra is one I aspire to follow every single day. The humor and pictures made it even better.

    This beautifully written and illustrated introduction to RBG restores confidence in the America being torn apart by Trumpisms in the 2016 elections.

    This book was so fun to read. It was well researched and I feel that I got a true picture of RBG and what makes her tick.
