This fascinating audiobook is a series of recorded speeches by Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, with introductions and background segments read by Linda Lavin. Using crisp tones, Lavin brings Ginsburg’s legal career to life. Her legal opinions, numerous speeches, and presentations are threaded together, interspersed with a history of the legal rights of women and minorities. Lavin’s narration is fluid and appropriately emotional, depending upon the subject matter. The biography also includes a history of the Supreme Court, information on justices' wives, and a discussion of the roles of Supreme Court justices since the founding of the government. The recordings vary in quality, depending upon their age and venue; some are barely audible, while others are crisp and clear. This work is a fascinating look at Ginsburg’s role in shaping the Court’s interpretations of the Constitution. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2016]
