Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

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 in her new book, My Beloved World. The journey recounted in this memoir offers testament to her own extraordinary determination and the power of believing in oneself.​
