This is a splendid biography of a heroine – but it’s hard to give a rating to a book which is pretty close to hagiography (look at that crown) and you also love her. Dearly.
I would recommend getting a paper copy of the book as there is a lot of information and photos not included in the audio version although there is a downloadable pdf file – I’d rather read the book and see the photos. I’ll likely be getting it later and rereading for the All-nonfiction group in March.
The title comes from a Tumblr blog started by Shana Knizhnik, a law student and then fans starting posting. The “Notorious” part comes from The Notorious B.I.G, a famous rapper. Knizhnik then joined up with Irin Carmon of MSNBC and with some assistance from RBG wrote the book. >>>>MORE (no spoilers) >>>>
