    I think this is a far cry from being a biography that features her dissenting opinions, rather the book s insides need to be flipped outside because it s a book about court cases in which they make it to the Supreme Court and somehow connect to RBG and then Ortiz takes a short break from the regularly scheduled program to talk about RBG s life The biographical information isn t anything that hasn t been covered in other high profile books, yet the cases are the feature and curious especially to I think this is a far cry from being a biography that features her dissenting opinions, rather the book s insides need to be flipped outside because it s a book about court cases in which they make it to the Supreme Court and somehow connect to RBG and then Ortiz takes a short break from the regularly scheduled program to talk about RBG s life The biographical information isn t anything that hasn t been covered in other high profile books, yet the cases are the feature and curious especially t...
