"An essential biography chronicles the life of one of the most empowering politicians of the century, from humble beginnings to extraordinary persistence"--

"Elizabeth Warren's rise as one of America's most powerful women is a stirring lesson in persistence. From her fierce support of the middle class to her unapologetic response to political bullies, Warren is known as a passionate yet plain-speaking champion of equity and fairness. In the wake of one fellow senator's effort to silence her in 2016, three words became a rallying cry across the country: NEVERTHELESS, SHE PERSISTED. Bestselling author Antonia Felix carries readers from Warren's hardscrabble roots in Norman, Oklahoma, to her career as one of the nation's most distinguished experts on the economics of working Americans. In this breakthrough biography, Felix weaves Warren's personal and professional transformation through the cultural and political themes of her time and reveals never-before-told stories from those who have journeyed with Warren from night-school Harvard Law professor to the halls of power in Washington, DC. Elizabeth Warren is the story of a young woman's coming of age, of the motivations behind her career turnaround toward politics, and of the realities of serving in Congress. And, like all great American stories, Warren's life offers a unique look at how we frame our national identity in a time of deep political and social divides."--Dust jacket.
