Publisher's Summary

This program is read by the author.
The fiery U.S. Senator from Massachusetts and bestselling author offers a passionate, inspiring audiobook 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 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.

Elizabeth Warren for President!

She spoke to me with clarity and passion, articulating so much essential information--actual facts--nested within her own personal story and that of other real people.

Because she reads her own book, her deep compassion and steely persistence seem to have come from my personal friend, from someone who knows me, who cares, who fights for me; someone I can rely on, personally.

With so much truth, so many devastating facts, I would have thought this would simply increase my pessimism. Instead, I come away wanting to fight.

She warns us, and yet she persists. I want to persist as well.

Great listen. Very timely.

I really enjoyed this book. I listened to it non stop almost. It is pretty much a biographical narrative with some political events as well.
Very easy to listen to.
If you like the author you will love this book. If you don't you will certainly respect her after listening.
