Reviews

`This Fight Is Our Fight is a smart, tough-minded book ... What Democrats need right now is a reason to keep fighting. And that's something Warren's muscular, unapologetic book definitely offers. It's an important contribution
New York Times



`This Fight Is Our Fight provides an insider's look at the machinations that are undermining the U.S. economy and political system. Warren spells out what is happening and what needs to be done to reverse the slide ... Warren is outspoken, personable, emphatic, dedicated ... It is unusual for any politician to be so open
New York Journal of Books



`Girded for battle, the senior senator from Massachusetts forcefully lays out the bleak picture of an American government increasingly controlled by corporate greed and special interests ... The author sounds the alarm that an oligarchy is in the making, and her urgency is palpable and necessary. Inspiring words to empower Warren's marching army
Kirkus (starred review)

Praise for Elizabeth Warren:



`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
Washington Post



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



`A revealing account of Warren's rise to prominence ... [Warren's] arguments demand to be taken seriously ... As a politician and activist, Warren's great strength is that she retains the outsider's perspective, and the outsider's sense of moral outrage ... She's an indomitable battler for the underdog, and she doesn't take no for an answer
New York Review of Books



`The Wall Street watchdog and U.S. senator has produced a readable and sometimes infuriating explanation of the biggest financial crisis of our time
People



[Warren] has a compelling story to tell ... She is also entertaining about professional politics
Economist
