About this product
- DescriptionAn unlikely political star tells us how Washington really works - and really doesn't. As a child in small-town Oklahoma, Elizabeth Warren yearned to go to college and become a teacher. Early motherhood seemed to put that dream out of reach, but fifteen years later she was a distinguished law professor with a deep understanding of why people go bankrupt. Then came the phone call that changed her life: could she come to Washington to help Congress rewrite the bankruptcy laws? So began an unsentimental education in the bare-knuckled ways of Washington. She fought for better bankruptcy laws for ten years, and lost. She tried to hold the federal government accountable during the financial crisis, but became a target of the big banks. She tried to protect consumers from predatory bankers, but was thwarted. Finally, at 62, she decided to run for the Senate, and won. In this passionate, funny, rabble-rousing book, Warren shows why she fights tooth and nail for the middle class - and why she has become a hero to all those who believe that America's government can and must do better.
- Author BiographyElizabeth Warren is the senior senator from Massachusetts. A former Harvard Law School professor and an expert on economic issues, she is the author of nine books, including All Your Worth: the ultimate lifetime money plan and The Two-Income Trap: why middle-class parents are going broke, both written with her daughter, Amelia Tyagi. She is widely credited with developing the idea for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and she helped set up the new agency as an assistant to President Obama. She also served as chair of the TARP Congressional Oversight Panel and as the senior advisor to the National Bankruptcy Review Commission. The mother of two and grandmother of three, she lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts, with her husband, Bruce Mann.
