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.

An angry rant, not that informative

I was really looking forward to this book because I have been impressed by Elizabeth Warren through articles I've read about her. I was so disappointed to find her analysis to be almost completely anecdotal with a few statistics thrown in here and there. I am not against real life stories of people. They keep the weight of the real life experience in perspective with what otherwise can be a dry analysis of stats, facts, and explanations. But a truly informative book has a balance of all these ingredients. Now I only listened to the first couple hours, hoping it would begin to become more thorough. But no. And I was disgusted to find how bitterly partisan she is, while complaining about how partisan politics have become. While talking about the debate on minimum wage, she actually said the line, "Republicans DON'T CARE." Wow, regardless of which party you aline with, flatly declaring that the other side doesn't care is not only inaccurate, it's extremely arrogant and unhelpful to the attempt to work together.

A Call to Action

As a law professor and a Senator, Elizabeth Warren has proven to be a fighter for the middle class. Her new book is a tough mined book but is only a partial blueprint for progressive political revival. It is more of a wake-up call to action. She acknowledges the Democratic Party failed to step up and fight in the past. The book is blunt and an impassioned plea to action.

She names the names of government officials she claims serve industry rather than the American people. Warren states that big business and the extremely wealthy have ruled for the past 35 years, and it is time to change their destruction of the middle class. She states that government invested in the middle class from 1935 to 1980 after that the government reduced its spending on education, infrastructure and basic research. She discusses the recent fight over raising the minimum wage and the reduction of worker safety regulations. Warren lays out the step by step decline of the middle class over the past 30 years but also outlines action to improve the situation.

Unless you are a billionaire, I suggest the reader put on hold their personal viewpoints and prejudices and read the book with an open mind.

The book is almost eleven hours long. Elizabeth Warren does an excellent job narrating the book.
