Justice Ginsburg, the subject of this audiobook, is restrained and self-contained, and so, appropriately, is narrator Suzanne Toren. It's an excellent performance, steady and professional, dramatic enough to keep the listener engaged but not garish or melodramatic. The audiobook is definitely Ginsburg-friendly. Listeners hoping for a more critical assessment of the justice's life and work will have to wait for some other author to tackle that chore. This audiobook's value lies in its recounting of the particular time in history when Ginsburg came of age and how she, with others, has contributed so greatly to jurisprudence benefiting both men and women. Toren handles her long performance with aplomb while remaining true to the author's tone and perspective. Listeners are well served. G.S. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2019]
