Excerpts from Reviews:

For anyone interested in the court, women's history or both, the story of Sandra Day O'Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, their separate routes to the Supreme Court and what they accomplished during the more than 12 years they spent together is irresistible. NY TIMES 9/20/15

The stories Hirshman tells, though not novel, are masterfully strung together to create a compelling narrative of Ginsburg and O'Connor's lives. And they are told in a manner extremely accessible for non-lawyers, describing background principles of the law in an easy-to-understand way. Oxonian Review 10/26/15
