Product description

Review

“One of John McCain’s key staffers turns in an affecting memoir....Salter gives a highly readable, blow-by-blow account.... One of the best fly-on-the-wall political memoirs in recent memory. Highly recommended.”—Kirkus Starred Review

“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

Reviewed in the United States on 14 October 2020
Excited! Salter reveals McCain like no one can. Nice to have a report from “the ground” level on a true American hero. Salters’ books to date reveled in the hero of McCain and others - a few pages in and I sense the humanity at the heart of the man McCain...this one is sure to deliver.
