What it’s about: A biography of the most iconic female Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

What made me pick it up: I had put The RBG Workout on hold and saw this was available, so I checked it out.

My favorite things: I love that RBG became a meme based on Biggie and then this excellent book was written about her as a result. I have always admired Ginsburg, but only in a general sense because I knew she was a woman who had infiltrated a man’s world at a time when that was still extremely difficult to do. This book provides so much information I never knew about her from her balanced and supportive marriage to her fitness regimen to her very reserved sense of humor. Now I also have a new goal to be able to do 20 pushups, like she can. I most enjoyed her view that the best change happens incrementally over time and that freedom for everyone should be the goal.

Who it’s great for: Everyone. Girls and women of all ages. But seriously, everyone.
