Happy #BookBday to A FIGHTING CHANCE

Happy #BookBday to A FIGHTING CHANCE

Fighting chanceToday we wish a very special #BookBday to Senator Elizabeth Warren's memoir, A FIGHTING CHANCE

A most unlikely political star, Warren's introduction to government came when she was asked to go to Washington DC to help advise Congress on rewriting the bankruptcy laws. She fought for better bankruptcy laws for ten years and lost. She tried to hold the federal government accountable during the financial crisis but became a target of the big banks. She came up with the idea for a new agency designed to protect consumers from predatory bankers and was denied the opportunity to run it. Then finally, at age 62, she decided to run for elective office and won the most competitive—and watched—Senate race in the country.

In this passionate, funny, rabble-rousing book, Warren shows why she has chosen to fight tooth and nail for the middle class—and why she has become a hero to all those who believe that America’s government can and must do better for working families.

Early reviews are fabulous and national media is ramping up:

“In these pages, she displays a down-home charm and an effortless rapport with everyday people that makes her story more engaging than the average political tome. The book is more memoir than manifesto; Warren emerges as a committed advocate with real world sensibility, who tasted tough economic times at an early age and did not forget its bitterness.” Publishers Weekly, starred review  

“This is a passionate memoir of one woman’s personal story and the larger story of corruption in financial circles and the need for reform that balances the interests of the American middle class against those of the corporate sector.” Booklist, starred & boxed review
