Wonderful book! Especially as an audiobook, with the author herself reading it! I love knowing Elizabeth Warren better, she writes & speaks so well!

Great audiobook. Good example of an elected official working for the good of the citizens of the country.

Sen. Warren has made fools of other senators, the Federal Reserve Chairperson [Yellen] and Paul Krugman, but I am wary that Sen. Warren is still way to supportive of the status quo, hope I am wrong.

Elizabeth Warren did an excellent job of reading her own book. She writes about her faults & triumphs. It was a very human story.

I was pleased about how WE CAN GET THINGS DONE IF WE WORK TOGETHER!

An excellent audiobook. Read by Warren herself, she conveys her passion, compassion and sense of humor along with a clear and cogent explanation of how banks, Wall Street, big government and mega corporations have rigged the game against the middle class and ordinary people, while taking the tax dollars we pay to form policies to use against us. And she's fighting to turn those things around so we all have a level playing field. She also peels back the curtain of how congress people behave, what they say behind our backs, blowing the whistle on their betrayal of their constituents who are not millionaires and billionaires - while giving us hope about how to change this. In the end, she is an inspirational leader who can *get things done.*
