Every Day Is Extra is Kerry’s passionate, insightful, sometimes funny, always moving account of his life. Kerry tells wonderful stories about colleagues Ted Kennedy and John McCain, as well as President Obama and other major figures. He writes movingly of recovering his faith while in the Senate, and deplores the hyper-partisanship that has infected Washington. Few books convey as convincingly as this one the life of public service like that which John Kerry has lived for 50 years.

I'm already a John Kerry supporter from back in 2004, and I know a lot about his life, but even I was surprised by how riveting the book is so far (I'm in chapter 5) and how genuine and engaged Kerry's reading performance is. He reads as if he is reliving every moment and remembering all the happy times and also the times of terrible grief (his father's death, the death of friends in the war). I can sense the sincere dedication that went into writing this memoir and the commitment that led him to read all 28 hours of it for Audible. Not everyone does that! And all this for one credit. One of my best purchases here so far.
