Persist is deeply personal book and powerful call to action, in which former U.S. presidential candidate, current senator from Massachussetts, and best-selling New York Times author Elizabeth Warren lays out plans and policies to create big, structural change and mixes vivid personal stories with a passionate plea for political transformation.
"I wrote Persist because I remain as committed to fighting for an America that works for everyone," Elizabeth Warren said about the book "I've written a dozen books, but this is one is especially personal: I bring the pieces of who I am to fight for real change, and I passionately believe that we are in a moment when extraordinary changes are possible."
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 will inspire everyone to believe that if we’re willing to fight for it, profound change is well within our reach.
