"Hard to top." (USA Today)
"More inspirational stories from McCain, following his Faith of My Fathers." (Library Journal)
McCain is an admirable man of remarkable character. But this book is overly long, full of self justification, and not particularly well read. It has some interesting contemporary history, but would have been much more compelling (and made the author much more sympathetic) if it had given us more insight into his military career and had less about how who disappointed him in Washington.
I read this because I wanted to know more about McCain. I do know more about him. I did like some of his stories and his thoughts. Generally, you read a book and like the writer better than before you read the book. Interestingly, I read McCain's description of himself and came away liking him less.
