- By: John W. Dean, Barry M. Goldwater Jr.
- Narrated by: Mel Foster
- Length: 14 hrs and 39 mins
Barry Goldwater was a defining figure in American public life, a firebrand politician associated with an optimistic brand of conservatism. In an era in which American conservatism has lost its way, his legacy is more important than ever. For over 50 years, in those moments when he was away from the political fray, Senator Goldwater kept a private journal, recording his reflections on a rich political and personal life.

I constantly read non-fiction and like Goldwater's story and personality. I listened to this for a little extra. Needless to say, the content is great, which is more product of the work but, the major downfall is the narrator. Mel Foster is so dry. I will never listen to another book of his. He makes this audiobook very boring. I ended up stopping the audio and just finished it at the library.
