It is a story of three imperfect men who faced adversity and emerged with their honor intact. Ultimately, Faith of My Fathers is a story of fathers and sons, what they give each other and what endures.

    In a time when Washington, DC and the country are more polarized than they have been for decades, John McCain is the rare public figure who has earned the respect of people on both sides of the aisle. He is a model for bipartisanship and political integrity. In his 40 years in politics, McCain has never been afraid to buck trends or ruffle a few feathers. His words are more important today than ever.

    Clashes this month between elements of the Iraqi security forces and Kurdish fighters around Kirkuk are deeply troubling, in particular because of the United States’ longstanding friendship with the Kurdish people. These clashes are also emblematic of a broader, more troubling reality: Beyond our tactical successes in the fight against the Islamic State, the United States is still dangerously lacking a comprehensive strategy toward the rest of the Middle East in all of its complexity.

    "John McCain: I Choose the Kurds" is from the October 24, 2017 Opinion section of The New York Times. It was written by John McCain and narrated by Kristi Burns.

    In 1967, US Air Force fighter pilot James Shively was shot down over North Vietnam. After ejecting from his F-105 Thunderchief aircraft, he landed in a rice paddy and was captured by the North Vietnamese Army. For the next six years, Shively endured brutal treatment at the hands of the enemy in Hanoi prison camps. Bound in iron stocks at the Hanoi Hilton, unable to get home to his loved ones, Shively contemplated suicide. Yet somehow he found hope - and he became determined to help his fellow POWs survive.

    Some years ago, I heard Natan Sharansky, the human rights icon, recount how he and his fellow refuseniks in the Soviet Union took renewed courage from statements made on their behalf by President Ronald Reagan. Word had reached the gulag that the leader of the most powerful nation on earth had spoken in defense of their right to self-determination. America, personified by its president, gave them hope, and hope is a powerful defense against oppression.

    "We Must Support Human Rights" is from the May 07, 2017 Opinion section of The New York Times. It was written by John McCain and narrated by Keith Sellon-Wright.

    Maverick Senator John McCain has always been famous for his candor, humor, and integrity. Now, in his latest book, McCain interweaves the stories of the leaders who influenced him (especially Billy Mitchell, a general who went against Navy brass to pioneer the creation of the U.S. Air Force) with chapters from his own life story. Hear about his last days in the navy; his first run for Congress; his education as a U.S. Senator; and his electrifying run for the Presidency in 2000.

    In 1999 John McCain wrote one of the most acclaimed and best-selling memoirs of the decade, Faith of My Fathers. That book ended in 1972, with McCain's release from imprisonment in Vietnam. This is the rest of his story, about his great American journey from the US Navy to his electrifying run for the presidency, interwoven with heartfelt portraits of the mavericks who have inspired him through the years - Ted Williams, Theodore Roosevelt, visionary aviation proponent Billy Mitchell, Marlon Brando in Viva Zapata!, and, most indelibly, Robert Jordan.
