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.

We, my husband and I, are partial towards John Kerry having 1st noticed him during the height of the Vietnam War when he testified before congress. His quote, "Who wants to be the last man to die for a mistake" linger as heroic.

The audible version is a beautiful telling of living a life of privilege from a young boy to senior statesman. We see him as a great American Patriot. Our political process has prevented him from becoming president but presidential he is.
