elizabeth-warren-a-fighting-chance-memoirElizabeth Warren is a wife, mother, grandmother, teacher, advocate, U.S. Senator, and  inspiring political heroine. Her new memoir, "A Fighting Chance," tells the  story of a journey that has taken two decades. It's a story of how Washington really works, and how it doesn't work for working class families. 

Elizabeth grew up in a hard working middleclass family in a small town in Oklahoma, and wanted to go to college to become an elementary school teacher. She married and became a mother early. Fifteen years later, she was a distinguished law professor with a deep understanding of why people go bankrupt. She was asked to come to Washington D.C. to help advise Congress on rewriting the bankruptcy laws.

elizabeth warren, a constant advocate for the middle class, with timothy geithner and president obamaThis was her introduction to the often dysfunctional ways of Washington. Elizabeth Warren fought for ten years for better bankruptcy laws, and then became a target of the big banks as she tried to hold the federal government accountable during the financial crisis. She led the charge for Wallstreet reform, and is widely credited for the political courage and relentless persistence that led to the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, giving us a fighting chance against big banks. 

Elizabeth Warren is a rabble-rouser, and in her passionate and sometimes funny autobiography, she tells why she chose to fight tooth and nail for the Middle Class, and why she has become a heroine to all of us who believe in an America where our government can and must do better for working families.
