Description
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER &;History matters to McCain, and for him America is and was about its promise. The book is his farewell address, a mixture of the personal and the political. &;I have loved my life,&; he writes. &;All of it.&; The Restless Wave is a fitting valedictory for a man who seldom backed down.&; &;The Guardian (US) &;A book-length meditation on what it means to face the hard challenges of long life and the sobering likelihood of imminent death&;A reflection on hardship, a homily on purpose, a celebration of life &; and a challenge to Americans to live up to their values and founding principles at a time when both are in jeopardy.&; &;The Boston Globe In this candid political memoir from Senator John McCain, an American hero reflects on his life and what matters most.&;I don&;t know how much longer I&;ll be here. Maybe I&;ll have another five years&;Maybe I&;ll be gone before you read this. My predicament is, well, rather unpredictable. But I&;m prepared for either contingency, or at least I&;m getting prepared. I have some things I&;d like to take care of first, some work that needs finishing, and some people I need to see. And I want to talk to my fellow Americans a little more if I may.&; So writes John McCain in this inspiring, moving, frank, and deeply personal memoir. Written while confronting a mortal illness, McCain looks back with appreciation on his years in the Senate, his historic 2008 campaign for the presidency against Barack Obama, and his crusades on behalf of democracy and human rights in Eastern Europe and the Middle East. Always the fighter, McCain attacks the spurious nationalism and political polarization afflicting American policy. He makes an impassioned case for democratic internationalism and bi-partisanship. He recalls his disagreements with several presidents, and minces no words in his objections to some of President Trump's statements and policies. At the same time, he tells stories of his most satisfying moments of public service and offers a positive vision of America that looks beyond the Trump presidency. The Restless Wave is John McCain at his best.
