Review

"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.... After reading this book, it is comforting to know that Elizabeth Warren, with her passion, anger and bluntness, will not be silenced."--"The Washington Post"

"[Warren's] storytelling is well-paced and engaging... She mixes policy points with rich behind-the-scenes anecdotes."--"The Boston Globe"

"Intelligent and informative ... [Warren is] good, plainspoken company who makes you feel smarter for having spent such easy time with her.... Her new book, which is a loving look at her family as well as her country, will only broaden her base."--"Entertainment Weekly"

"Warren's prose is as ... direct as her book's title. She has a good story to tell and she tells it well.... Warren's accomplishments defied expectations virtually every step of the way."--"The Christian Science Monitor"

"Passionate... Her vision [for the country], laid out elegantly and effectively in "A Fighting Chance", involves investments by 'we the people, ' through our government, in schools, roads and research labs, and in a social safety net for 'the least among us, ' investments that are, at once, in our own self-interest and in the national interest."--"Pittsburgh Post-Gazette"

"Remarkable..." A Fighting Chance "takes the reader into the nitty-gritty of our nation's most controversial financial decisions with a depth of insight and experience no one else in today's politics can offer... In a time when our country's greatness seems to be in crisis, this is the story of a woman who is the living embodiment of the American Dream."--Harvard Political Review

"A Fighting Chance" tells true and important tales about the great scandal of our age, the corruptions that engulf Washington today, and the battles of good people to reform them ...

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)

"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.... [Warren] offers a behind-the-scenes look at the political dealmaking and head-butting machinations in efforts to restore the nation's financial system."--"Booklist" (starred review)
