My Own Words – Ruth Bader Ginsburg

My Own WordsMy Own Words by Ruth Bader Ginsburg
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I will admit that I was not expecting to really like this book. Let’s just say that the only thing which that the Justice and I see eye to eye (no pun intended) is that women are as good as men and sometimes better. I am a huge fan of the Justice’s work towards women’s rights and equality. I was very interested in learning how she keeps an open mind in the Court when her views are obviously ….. well…. her views.

I was happy to see that instead of an autobiography like so many others which I wind up finding boring, this one was set up as a collections of Justice Ginsburg’s writings, thoughts and decisions as well as in some cases, at least one, a speech written by her husband. I found it very heartwarming when she interjected her own opinion and thoughts in the midst of reading his speech.

I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it. It just goes to show you that you don’t have to politically agree with the person you’re reading about to enjoy and even like the person.
