Review

“The book is crisply written . . . Cleland and Ben Raines have produced an emotional and provoking book that fits his remarkable story into the broader context of the state of American politics since World War II. It is oftentimes uncomfortable, but always compelling.”

“Filled with bravery on many fronts and perseverance in life.”
New Pittsburgh Courier

“A true profile in courage for our time.”
—Senator Ted Kennedy

“Powerful.”
—Paul J. Nyden, Charleston Gazette (West Virginia)

“Deeply moving and uplifting . . . Cleland is as big a man as you’ll ever meet.”
—Jon Land, Providence Journal-Bulletin (Rhode Island)

“A powerful testament to one veteran’s struggles and successes… A classic American triumph.”
Roll Call

“Intensely honest and personal . . . Inspirational.”
Library Journal --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
