Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Famous for being chided for ‘persisting’ on the Senate floor…Warren’s common-sensical proposals on housing, infrastructure development, and civil rights merit attention, and her book makes for a sometimes funny, sometimes sharp-tongued pleasure. A lively and thoughtful memoir that, one hopes, will inspire readers to pursue activism in every realm of society.” Kirkus Reviews
“Warren is a warrior for the common person and…ardently delineates the practical applications behind her innovative solutions…This is Warren in depth, up close, and very personal, and a must-read for…everyone interested in humane and just political action.” Booklist (starred review)
“[Warren] takes account of the lessons she’s learned from the roles that have most defined her…She urges us to do the same, to dig deep and personal, to value, to commit, and to act.” Barnes&Noble.com
