What an amazing lady! Justice Sotomayor has overcome so much (language barrier, class struggles, racism and sexism) and done it with a humility that is awe inspiring. Her self-discipline, work ethic, and ability to reason her way through a problem, even from a young age, is astounding. Further, Sotomayor took the long view of her life and career, and always challenged herself to improve. I've truly relished this chance to learn about Justice Sotomayor. She's a wonderful role model

While I enjoyed many of Sotomayor's stories, I found her ego and self-aggrandizement to be a bit tiresome, and I looked forward to the end of the book. I can see this book being helpful to young people planning to go a similar route with their careers.

I enjoyed this book and I felt like I really got to know something deep and personal about Sotomayor. I would love to hear about her experiences as a supreme court justice but I don't believe she's free to write about that period of her life which she is still living. I listened to and enjoyed the book read by Rita Moreno and I read the hard copy as well.
