Mass. Senator Elizabeth Warren has a memoir coming out next month from Metropolitan Books, an imprint of Macmillian, called A Fighting Chance.
In the book Warren tells her own personal story of how she made it as a law professor and in Congress. Check it out:
As a child in small-town Oklahoma, Elizabeth Warren yearned to go to college and then become an elementary school teacher—an ambitious goal, given her family’s modest means. Early marriage and motherhood seemed to put even that dream out of reach, but fifteen years later she was a distinguished law professor with a deep understanding of why people go bankrupt. Then came the phone call that changed her life: could she come to Washington DC to help advise Congress on rewriting the bankruptcy laws?
Warren is the author of a number of finance books including: All Your Worth: The Ultimate Lifetime Money Plan and The Two-Income Trap: Why Middle-Class Parents are Going Broke.
