Inhaltsangabe

A candid new political memoir from Senator John McCain - his most personal book in years - covering everything from 2008 up to the present. 

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. 

The Restless Wave begins in 2008, with McCain's presidential campaign, and then follows the senator during his time as a senior Republican lawmaker through the Obama administration, when the country was tested at home and abroad. McCain shares his experiences during the divisive 2016 election and his no-holds-barred opinions on the current developments coming out of Washington. He also discusses the vital challenges from abroad: Russia, NATO, the campaign to defeat ISIS, and our ongoing operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, among others. Candid, pragmatic, and always fascinating, John McCain holds nothing back in his latest memoir.

Outstanding narrator, inspiring story

When I got the book, I did not have to high expectations and I didn't really like John McCain. After reading it, I am impressed by his commitment and good work in the political arena. Although I tend to disagree with a number of his perceptions of Russia and China, I like his honest reflection and clear cut analysis. Highly recommend this book!
