Publisher's Summary

This program is read by the author.

The inspiring, influential senator and best-selling author mixes vivid personal stories with a passionate plea for political transformation.

Elizabeth Warren is a beacon for everyone who believes that real change can improve the lives of all Americans. Committed, fearless, and famously persistent, she brings her best game to every battle she wages.

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 audiobook and a powerful call to action. Elizabeth Warren - one of our nation’s most visionary leaders - will inspire everyone to believe that if we’re willing to fight for it, profound change is well within our reach.

Heartwarming and Inspiring

Elizabeth Warren really tells her story in such a way that the reader feels inspired and hearing her own voice makes her story even more relatable.
I truly enjoyed this and highly recommend this to supporters and fans of Elizabeth Warren as well as those interested in learning more about this strong, dedicated woman.

Lifr-Changing

Everybody needs the message in this book. I have to admit, I'm a Liz fan, and still I was blown away by her words.

Thoughtful, caring, concise, pallette cleansing,, easy listening, and love are a few words that I'd use to describe this book.

The heart and soul of our nation

This book I did not expect at this moment.

It is so poignant and powerful.

I laughed so hard at time I completely burst and sometimes I cried as I entered worlds I had never seen.

It is both strategic, tactical, analytical and even synthetic. Elizabeth Warren is a very brilliant successor to the Whiz Kids of the Kennedy administration. This book helped me a great deal both within and without.

Thank you Senator Warren for the sunshine that you have warmed my life with.

Thank you, Elizabeth Warren!

Elizabeth Warren‘s new book reminds me of how much work we have to do! Everyone should read this book with an open mind and think about all the ways that we could help our country and our people be better able to face the future. Thank you for all of your plans! You embolden us with hope! I continue to believe in your cause and hope that there will continue to be politicians who rise up to fight against corruption, misogyny, racism, and the exploitation of the poor in our country. My heart is grateful for all that you have done for us all.

Inspiring reflections from a powerful woman

I love Elizabeth Warren and really wanted her to be POTUS. In this book, she reflects on her time growing b up and the different things she overcame to get where she is. I like that she actually reads the book too.

Interesting

Much of the material in this book has been covered in other books by Warren and in the campaign for president. I respect her as a gracious loser in the presidential campaign. She behaved in what is now an old fashion manner. I enjoy reading Warren’s books as she is an excellent writer. She is concise and to the point. The book was a nice review of Warren’s plans and goals; but, if I had realized the book was mostly a review of her message, I would have skipped it as I am familiar with the content.

The book is ten hours and thirty-five minutes. Warren does a good job narrating the book. When she is no longer in politics, she can obtain a job narrating audiobooks.

Fight the good fight!

I have always liked Elizabeth Warren, and now I know her a little better. Now I really LIKE and admire Elizabeth Warren! Yes, I wanted Elizabeth to get the Democratic nomination, sorry Bernie, cause you are great too! But I was one of those folks who could adjust to someone, anyone, who would beat trump. This country was in deep trouble. I have full confidence that Elizabeth Warren will serve this country well in the Senate. The future is coming, and women will take their rightful place in leadership, and I have confidence that Elizabeth Warren will be right up there with the best and brightest. Persist!

Very listenable and informative

I could listen to Liz Warren all day. She thinks like me. She gets me and I get her. This book is a nice mixture...an intimate look at what made Elizabeth Warren (the daughter, the mother, the sister, the wife, the politician and especially the teacher) and the details of her "Plans" and the evolution of how she's come to those plans.

She is great at telling what she lived through during the race and why

Loved to hear senator Warren tell her stories and interpretations of the events that lead her to running for president and her perspective of the events during and after her race

Politics through storytelling

Told through anecdotes from Warren's own life and presidential campaign, we hear about today's many societal problems in America - and how to fix them. The author is undoubtedly a great storyteller, talking about politics in a personal manner and mapping out an ideal future worth fighting for.

Hearing this audiobook was an absolute joy, in great deal thanks to Warren's unmatched ability to energize and enthrall her audience. Her deeply rooted enthusiasm shines through and it doesn't feel like she reads this book at all. Instead, it's just like listening to someone speaking right from their heart.

INCREDIBLE woman & enthusiastic, clear reader.

You know an audio book is a winner when you cannot possibly hit "pause". Hours later I'm still listening. Elizabeth Warren is an incredible speaker, always has been...with an inspiring story.
