The inspiring, influential senator and bestselling author mixes vivid personal stories with a passionate plea for political transformation.
Elizabeth Warren is a beacon for everyone who believes that real change can improve the lives of all Americans. Committed, fearless, and famously persistent, she brings her best game to every battle she wages.
In Persist, Warren writes about six perspectives that have influenced her life and advocacy. She’s a mother who learned from wrenching personal experience why child care is so essential. She’s a teacher who has known since grade school the value of a good and affordable education. She’s a planner who understands that every complex problem requires a comprehensive response. She’s a fighter who discovered the hard way that nobody gives up power willingly. She’s a learner who thinks, listens, and works to fight racism in America. And she’s a woman who has proven over and over that women are just as capable as men.
Candid and compelling, Persist is both a deeply personal book and a powerful call to action. Elizabeth Warren—one of our nation’s most visionary leaders—will inspire everyone to believe that if we’re willing to fight for it, profound change is well within our reach.
Praise for A Fighting Chance
"A potent mix of memoir and policy...The title of this book reminds us that this is about Warren's fight. She is still the fiery advocate who called for a bureau to protect consumers or, as a second choice, 'no agency at all and plenty of blood and teeth left on the floor.'"
—The New York Times Book Review
"Moving...Ultimately, the book's message is that one person can make a difference...Elizabeth Warren, with her passion, anger and bluntness, will not be silenced."
—The Washington Post
“Well-paced and engaging.”
—The Boston Globe
“Intelligent and informative...[Warren is] good, plainspoken company who makes you feel smarter for having spent such easy time with her.”
“A revealing account of Warren's rise to prominence...As a politician and activist, Warren's great strength is that she retains the outsider's perspective, and the outsider's sense of moral outrage...She's an indomitable battler for the underdog, and she doesn't take no for an answer.”
—The New York Review of Books
“The Wall Street watchdog and U.S. senator has produced a readable and sometimes infuriating explanation of the biggest financial crisis of our time.”
Praise for This Fight is Our Fight
“This Fight Is Our Fight is a smart, tough-minded book...What Democrats need right now is a reason to keep fighting. And that’s something Warren’s muscular, unapologetic book definitely offers. It’s an important contribution.”
—Paul Krugman, The New York Times Book Review
"This Fight Is Our Fight provides an insider’s look at the machinations that are undermining the U.S. economy and political system. Warren spells out what is happening and what needs to be done to reverse the slide...Warren is outspoken, personable, emphatic, dedicated...It is unusual for any politician to be so open."
—New York Journal of Books
"Girded for battle, the senior senator from Massachusetts forcefully lays out the bleak picture of an American government increasingly controlled by corporate greed and special interests...The author sounds the alarm that an oligarchy is in the making, and her urgency is palpable and necessary. Inspiring words to empower Warren's marching army."
