Summary
"An unlikely political star tells the inspiring story of the two-decade journey that taught her how Washington really works --- and really doesn't. As a child in small-town Oklahoma, Elizabeth Warren yearned to go to college and then become an elementary school teacher --- an ambitious goal, given her family's modest means. Early marriage and motherhood seemed to put even 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, D.C., to help advise Congress on rewriting the bankruptcy laws? Thus began an impolite education into the bare-knuckled, often dysfunctional 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 came up with the idea for a new agency designed to protect consumers from predatory bankers and was denied the opportunity to run it. Finally, at age sixty-two, she decided to run for elective office and won the most competitive --- and watched --- Senate race in the country. In this passionate, funny, rabble-rousing audiobook, Elizabeth Warren tells her story. A Fighting Chance shows why she has chosen to fight 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 for working families."--Container
