4.0 von 5 Sternen Very good to read - but a bit too long, 24. Mai 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: My Beloved World (Kindle Edition)
A very entertaining book, good to read. It shows that in the US everything is feasable with a strong will and the necessary capabilities. At the end it becomes a bit "more of the same", should be shorter.

There is much to learn from this book. I loved it!
Very inspiring.
If we define life success through personal efforts – this is school example for it.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: My Beloved World (Gebundene Ausgabe)
My Beloved World by Sonia Sotomayor can be read on quite a few levels:

One is how a member of a minority, acutally a number of minority groups, can succeed in spite all the odds against her. She was an energetic child who was encouraged and supported by both her parents, though in very different ways, also by her extended family with many cousins and aunts on her side. She grew up in a Puerto-Rican family in a district with many African-Americans and Hispanics. Her grandmother was the person every child needs, that special someone who provides her with unconditional love, respect and confidence. Educated in a Catholic schools she learned early on to be very disciplined. Discipline she needs a lot of, escpealliy after being diagnosed with juvenile diabetes, an everyday challenge that required discipline and courage of her. Her fahter died of alcoholism when she was only nine, another blow to any child, disruptive to any childhood, but Sonia kept on going the right way.

She was encouraged to go to university and succeeded beyond anone’s wildest dreams. Supported by affirmative action Sotomayor did an outstanding job.

Her first marriage ends after some time, and maybe most men today still find it hard to cope with a strong, independent woman. So she seems to define herself in many ways by her performance and the many friends who surround and support her.

She points out quite clearly she needed the help of others to succeed. She wants to encourage any minority member not believe in labels stuck onto them but just be themselves - sounds really like a cliché – but some things can be expressed in a very easy way. It is just hard to do them.

Very recommendable reading for anyone.

"Furthermore, whom should I serve?" -- 2 Samuel 16:19 (NKJV)

Most people have few problems deciding whom they should serve. It's "me," "me," "me," "me."

For Supreme Court justice Sonia Sotomayor, the answer was always "others," "others," "others," and "others."

While some arrive at the same answer as Ms. Sotomayor, many of them reach that point through guilt, feelings of inadequacy, and felt pressure from others.

From reading this book carefully, I got the sense that Ms. Sotomayor operates more in this way: "If I can help, I will." It's a calling with her.

I don't often have the pleasure to read about the life of such a person. I felt blessed by this opportunity.

Many readers will enjoy (as I did) gaining a better sense of what it's like to grow up with Type 1 diabetes, be of Puerto Rican ancestry, and to face challenges for which one has little preparation to make things easier.

I was intrigued by her descriptions of learning to be an effective prosecutor. Most memoirs skip over the details of such trials by fire.

Be aware that this is not an autobiography. It isn't rigorously capturing a life, bur rather giving her thoughts about her experiences ... through the time when she was first appointed to be a Federal district judge.

I don't know another person who has worn the black robes who has been so candid and open about a personal life before sitting behind the bench. I admire her for doing so.

If you read only one memoir this year, I commend this one to you as an excellent choice.
