The reader did an excellent job.
Her account of interviewing college admissions officers was one of the most memorable to me.
No I have not hear her previously.
No, I liked hearing it in pieces.
This was an inspirational account of an American experience, but it was a balanced. I appreciated the generous spirit and kindness reflected in this account.
It was so nice to hear the relatable, real-world story of a true hero. She has come so far and achieved so much. The performance was excellent as well. Great book!
This was a beautiful story and a joy to listen to. I only wish I had been taking notes – there were some incredible quotes I would like to remember. I am so thankful that a woman like Sonya Sotomayor is on our Supreme Court.
I love to read and listen to books.
Awesome book, would love the honor of meeting this amazing woman. she is very driven and down to earth at the same time. Read it, you'll be glad you did.
I love the story, the richness of details and the well produce audio. I fully recommend to others and specially for young people to believes dreams could come true with hard work and solid values.
Thought provoking, this is a wonderful insight into the thinking & feelings of a brilliant & courageous woman. It caused me to recall special moments of awareness, my own agency, individual course of life. I learned much from Sotomayor's exploration & description of her complex life so far.
Her story is an inspiring one if you happen to be growing up poor or hispanic and aspire to the legal profession.
I can think of a few who would like it, but it is not particularly well written.
It was okay.
I love Rita Moreno as an actress, and it was a definite advantage to have her pronounce the Spanish words correctly -- something I could not have done in my head had I been reading it for myself. But because of the way this book was written, there was no room to display her usual fiery personality. Despite Sotomayor's incredible accomplishments, the telling of them was rather dull, a bit like a legal brief.
Oh yes, it comes to life in audio.
Sonia's utter honesty and remarkable memory about her life.
This book is one to savor and think over.
Everyone should read this book. You will get a glimpse of a life you will most likely never have. It's inspirational. Makes you want to do your best and try hard at whatever you do.
When Sonia decided at age 8 she had to learn to give herself the her own Insulin shots
Rita Moreno brought credibility to the Puerto Rican culture. She did an amazing job!
I made me cry, it made me laugh, it made me happy it made me excited.
Sonia Sotomayor, you are in inspiration
