The Restless Wave - by John McCain
的 don稚 know how much longer I値l be here. Maybe I値l have another five years. Maybe, with the advances in oncology, they値l find new treatments for my cancer that will extend my life. Maybe I値l be gone before you read this. My predicament is, well, rather unpredictable. But I知 prepared for either contingency, or at least I知 getting prepared. I have some things I壇 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 都purious nationalism and political polarization afflicting American policy. He makes an impassioned case for democratic internationalism and bi-partisanship. He tells stories of his most satisfying moments of public service, including his work with another giant of the Senate, Edward M. Kennedy. Senator McCain recalls his disagreements with several presidents, and minces no words in his objections to some of President Trump痴 statements and policies. At the same time, he offers a positive vision of America that looks beyond the Trump presidency.

The Restless Waveis John McCain at his best.
