    The first Hispanic and third woman appointed to the United States Supreme Court, Sonia Sotomayor has become an instant American icon. Now, with a candor and intimacy never undertaken by a sitting Justice, she recounts her life from a Bronx housing project to the federal bench, a journey that offers an inspiring testament to her own extraordinary determination and the power of believing in oneself.

    Mrs. Pearle G. Mintz says: "A book so wonderful I can't wait until I share it"

    Would you listen to My Beloved World again? Why?

    Yes, Rita Morena (the reader) understands the Puerto Rican experience having lived it herself and Sonia Sotomayor is a great writer. Who knew! It's a miracle that she rose to being a Supreme Court judge from such humble beginnings fraught with a myriad obstacles.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of My Beloved World?

    Overcoming the Diabetes diagnosis.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the scenes with her grandmother (reading poetry, seances, matriarchal duties).


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Rita Moreno plays the older Sotomayor with the flair of experience


    Any additional comments?

    This is a must read for everyone who cares about women.
