PRAISE FOR ELIZABETH WARREN: HER FIGHT. HER WORK. HER LIFE.

“If you wonder why Elizabeth Warren is profound yet always understandable, tough-minded yet soft-hearted, able to bring real life to Washington—and vice versa—read her life story by Antonia Felix. It will not only show us what a leader can be, but who we can become.”  
—GLORIA STEINEM

“Compelling, important, and relevant to the present and future of America.”

ROBERT B. REICH, former U.S. Secretary
of Labor

“Felix's story of a woman who broke barriers to become an effective national leader in the fight for fairness provides a powerful antidote to defeatism as an example of what can be accomplished if, as Sen. McConnell complained about Elizabeth, we ’persist.’”
BARNEY FRANK, former congressman (MA)

NOW IN TRADE PAPERBACK

Critical acclaim for the first biography of Elizabeth Warren:

“The book provides a solid discussion of the most controversial aspect of Warren’s career: her claim to Native American ancestry based on family stories . . . the biography gives a robust representation of both sides." —WASHINGTON POST

 

"Felix is an excellent writer. . . . [She] definitely understands the appeal that Warren has to working-class progressives.” —NPR BOOKS

"Felix deftly brings the backstory of this progressive icon to life in a detailed and revelatory look at one of the country’s most admired and outspoken leaders."—BOOKLIST
