Summary

The inspiring, influential senator and bestselling author mixes vivid personal stories with a passionate plea for political transformation.

Elizabeth Warren is a beacon for everyone who believes that real change can improve the lives of all Americans. Committed, fearless, and famously persistent, she brings her best game to every battle she wages.

In Persist , Warren writes about six perspectives that have influenced her life and advocacy. She's a mother who learned from wrenching personal experience why child care is so essential. She's a teacher who has known since grade school the value of a good and affordable education. She's a planner who understands that every complex problem requires a comprehensive response. She's a fighter who discovered the hard way that nobody gives up power willingly. She's a learner who thinks, listens, and works to fight racism in America. And she's a woman who has proven over and over that women are just as capable as men.

Candid and compelling, Persist is both a deeply personal book and a powerful call to action. Elizabeth Warren--one of our nation's most visionary leaders--will inspire everyone to believe that if we're willing to fight for it, profound change is well within our reach.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "U.S. Senator Warren still has a lot of fight left, following her 2020 presidential bid. With Joe Biden in the White House instead, the well-researched policies and "plan for everything" mantra that defined Warren's campaign remain front-of-mind for her. Drawing on the roles Warren has cherished in her own life--student, woman, mother, educator--she continues the vital topical conversations she's long conducted, going into more detail here than stump speeches and debate responses allow. Warren tackles such signature issues as her two-cent wealth tax plan and alleviating student-loan debt, diving into the complexities to reveal the real-world consequences behind government inaction. Her passion for these positions leaps off the page, her conviction a fervent reminder of all that can yet be accomplished. Warren is a warrior for the common person and cites what she calls her "unflinching determination" to remind readers that her aspirational speeches weren't just campaign rhetoric; she intends to, yes, persist. That rare politician who can craft public policy from a personal viewpoint, whether informed by her own experiences or by empathetic responses to stories shared by constituents, Warren ardently delineates the practical applications behind her innovative solutions. This is Warren in depth, up close, and very personal, and a must-read for supporters and everyone interested in humane and just political action. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: A clarion and influential thinker and leader, Warren is also a best-selling author and interest will be avid for her latest vision for political progress."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "U.S. senator and former presidential candidate Warren (This Fight Is Our Fight) details her policy agenda in this clear-sighted account. She admits to feeling "a little numb" after dropping out of the 2020 Democratic primary, and recalls how chalk messages written by supporters on the sidewalk in front of her house inspired her to "suck it up and get back to work." Drawing on personal anecdotes and stories shared by voters on the campaign trail, Warren effectively humanizes her policy prescriptions. For example, she buttresses her call for universal childcare with a discussion of how, after being fired from a teaching job in 1971 "for getting pregnant," her pursuit of a law degree hinged on potty training her toddler daughter in five days so a day care center would take her. Warren calls for a wealth tax ("two cents for every dollar above $50 million, and three cents for every dollar above $1 billion") to fund universal childcare and improvements in public education, and lays out plans for campaign finance reform, affordable housing, and banking regulations. Though Warren's admirers won't find much new, the book's affable tone and levelheaded discussions of social issues are refreshing. This is an accessible introduction to the politician and the policies she stands for. (May)"
