This is a very personal look into an amazing woman's life. I particularly enjoyed that she read the audiobook herself, it gave it a very emotional and approachable touch. This is definitely good for those in the legal community and those outside of it- the focus is on the person, not the judge.

What I enjoyed about this is how personal of a story this is. However, this is most definitely more geared towards people who have read other books on the Justice O'Connor (e.g. First), as otherwise, a lot could be disjointed. I loved that she read the book herself, that added a great touch to the audible presentation. Amazing justice, great read.

Interesting snippets, lack of coherence

This book provides interesting insight into Robert's life in the law, but it lacks a personal approach to his life, which might be result of his rather private persona. There was rather little "red-thread" throughout the story, and I was particularly annoyed with the reading voice- it sounds like a robot.

This is well-written and beautifully read. A great motivational book that shares Mrs. Clinton’s thoughts on what happened and what should come next

This is a touching memoir, very emotional because read by Joe Biden himself. Recommend to get an insight into his personal life- very motivating also.

This book is an intricate study of one period of the US Supreme Court, with extensive insight into the thoughts of the judges. I enjoyed the book very much, however this particular story was too long for my liking- The last 5-6 hrs were hard to get through and the writing seemed little succinct at times.

This is not a bad book, just not at all what I expected. It is a lot more personal story rather than work-accomplishment/motivational (like for example Megyn Kelly's book). I was missing a clear thread in this story, it jumps in time and the chapters are too long for my liking. I did enjoy the advice Mrs. Perino included for young professionals. And she seems like a lovely person, all my comments are solely about this book and how it was written.

Funny, real, a must listen

I was very positively surprised by this book. Though I didn't doubt Megyn Kelly had an eventful life, she proves here capable of an exuisite reflective and well-balanced self-interrogative quality. I like Megyn's humor- her reading her own book gives it a very personal touch.
