“Franklin Roosevelt had Louis Howe and Harry Hopkins, JFK had Ted Sorensen and Arthur Schlesinger Jr., and John McCain had Mark Salter. In this compelling, honest, and much-needed book, Salter, McCain’s longtime coauthor and adviser, captures the raucous, resilient, and invigorating spirit of the late war hero and legendary senator. McCain wasn’t always right, but he was always decent, and Salter’s terrific account reminds us of what public service—and public servants—ought to be like.”—Jon Meacham
“A moving and lucidly written memoir....Mr. Salter’s admiration for his old boss is profound, but he is aware, too, of McCain’s complexity....reading Mr. Salter’s fine memoir, I am confirmed in an old opinion: that it is one of the great tragedies of our politics that John McCain was never elected president. America was just unlucky, I guess."—Wall Street Journal
"Salter’s psychological portrait of McCain is informed and convincing....McCain may have considered himself 'the luckiest man on earth,' but we too are lucky to have counted him among our leaders and to have this intimate biography that will keep his memory bright."—The Washington Post

I started this book this morning and have been unable to put it down all day! How sad that John McCain’s attempts to run for President fell at such inopportune times in history. I admit I disagreed with many of his policies but I always admired McCain as a moral leader and true patriot. tRump isn’t fit to clean McCain’s boots let alone demean him. How sad we are to be governed by such a buffoon and suffer without McCain’s judgement and ethical strength in Washington. Read this book to remind yourself what morals, ethics and patriotism really look like.
