Description

#1 New York Times bestseller

The fiery U.S. Senator from Massachusetts and bestselling author offers a passionate, inspiring book about why our middle class is under siege and how we can win the fight to save it

Senator Elizabeth Warren has long been an outspoken champion of America’s middle class, and by the time the people of Massachusetts elected her in 2012, she had become one of the country’s leading progressive voices. Now, at a perilous moment for our nation, she has written a book that is at once an illuminating account of how we built the strongest middle class in history, a scathing indictment of those who have spent the past thirty-five years undermining working families, and a rousing call to action.

Warren grew up in Oklahoma, and she’s never forgotten how difficult it was for her mother and father to hold on at the ragged edge of the middle class. An educational system that offered opportunities for all made it possible for her to achieve her dream of going to college, becoming a teacher, and, later, attending law school. But now, for many, these kinds of opportunities are gone, and a government that once looked out for working families is instead captive to the rich and powerful. Seventy-five years ago, President Franklin Roosevelt and his New Deal ushered in an age of widespread prosperity; in the 1980s, President Ronald Reagan reversed course and sold the country on the disastrous fiction called trickle-down economics. Now, with the election of Donald Trump--a con artist who promised to drain the swamp of special interests and then surrounded himself with billionaires and lobbyists--the middle class is being pushed ever closer to collapse.

Written in the candid, high-spirited voice that is Warren’s trademark, This Fight Is Our Fight tells eye-opening stories about her battles in the Senate and vividly describes the experiences of hard-working Americans who have too often been given the short end of the stick. Elizabeth Warren has had enough of phony promises and a government that no longer serves its people--she won’t sit down, she won’t be silenced, and she will fight back.

    I read this book because I saw Senator Warren on recent debates and her comments resonated deeply with me but otherwise I know little about her; “This Fight is Our Fight” has changed that equation significantly. She very eloquently lays out the foundations of her arguments for how the lower and middle classes, and American institutions, have been systematically gutted by those who can never acquire too much wealth and power. For the record, I have no problem with considerable wealth until it infringes upon the inalienable rights of others. It is now clear to me that she is highly intelligent, deliberately thoughtful and empathetic. She appears to have a more formidable grasp on the ‘big picture’ than most could ever dare imagine. It would be easy for those of lesser character to recede into the background and let events happen around them, but not Senator Warren. I now think she is the right person at the right time in our history to help us become the nation that the clear majority of us believe we can be. This is a must read for anyone looking for meaningful alternatives to the status quo in American politics.

    America gets fooled again...first with trickle down economics from an actor. Now it's make America great again from a con man. Republicans never have been concerned about the middle class...if you believe they do wake up and smell the coffee. Senator Warren your accusations hit the nail right on the head.

    Complains about high cost of college, but charges $400K to teach one class. She is nothing but a fraud.

    There is way too much common sense and truth in this book for some people. I'm fairly sure those leaving 1 star reviews didn't even read it. Worth reading.
  • Thank you Senator

    In times like these we need progressive leaders to write about how we can make America fair again. We are all in this together, but Republicans have been trying to divide us for years. It's time to rethink our entire economic system - and Senator Warren has many important ideas.

    But like everything else associated with this phony, it fails on an epic level. This book is worse than learning your child has cancer.
