Great Fights, and Other Appreciations ⑪ Author John McCain ┘ Senator Lindsey Graham once described his friend John McCain as someone who would run across the street to get in a good fight McCains final battle came straight to him Im not talking about the one against brain cancerIm talking about the one against Donald Trump He wages it in a forthcoming book, The Restless WaveMcCain has always believed, to his core, in sacrifice, honor and allegiance to something larger than oneselfSuch grace is unimaginable from Trump Thats why its so vital that McCain is using his waning time to model it Frank Bruni, The New York Times You can see McCain in this book struggling to reconcile himself to what his Republican Party has largely becomeThe six term senator from Arizona slips in a few careful mentions of Donald J Trump, and expresses concern about the rancor that has overtaken the countryHe consistently returns again and again to what seems for him to be a core commitment a fervent belief in American exceptionalismhis faith in his countrys beneficence remains undimmed Jennifer Szalai, The New York Times In what may be his final public act, John McCain this month will publish a book that bequeaths us a rare gift.the volume does not burden us with a lot of high minded advice based on lessons learned, nor does it pull us down into treacly memoir McCain is still very much McCain.What he does offer, though, at this peculiar moment of our history, is far precious a reminder of the values and principles that our nation has long stood for, and a spur to us to recover from this unhealthy interlude and stand for them again Without preaching, instead by recounting stories of battles won and often lost, McCain unspools something akin to a self help manual for a country that has, at least for the moment, lost its way Fred Hiatt, The Washington Post It should be required reading for anyone who wants to lead in a democracy Senator Lindsey Graham, TheNew York Times 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 Remarkable.a book length meditation on what it means to face the hard challenges of long life and the sobering likelihood of imminent death John McCains valedictory message, at the booksellers under the title The Restless Wave,is a 400 page 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 This is not just a book that offers a vision of how politics might be done differently, it is essentially a blueprint for how to live a life well The New Statesman In this thoughtful valedictory, McCain deliversUnlike the previous six books McCain and Salter have composed together, this one wasnt written for voters It was written for historyWith what time he has left, the maverick an appellation he has worn throughout his career, at some times comfortably than at others is going to put country first and tell the truthHis book will be remembered for its genuine concern about the future of our republic and the West James Hohmann, The Washington Post McCains The Restless Wave coalesces a series of poignant and striking warnings of the perils facing the United States, from Russian aggression worldwide to an escalated American divide and partisanship fights to isolationist efforts and racismHe also expresses a theme of gratitude for living a life larger than he envisioned Stars and Stripes Written in McCains plain spoken, occasionally brusque manner, the senator and Vietnam war veteranoffers a wide ranging appraisal of his own career, one marked by unrealized presidential ambitions and a lofty view of America on the international stage The Guardian John McCain always said hed go down fighting, and so he hasMcCain became, throughout his career, the embodiment of the noble nonconformist on the Hill, the politician who was all too willing to sacrifice party loyalty to do what he thought was right for the country, to do so loudly and consistently, and to fearlessly pronounce everyone, including the occupant of the Oval Office, dead wrong if they disagreed with him Over nearly four decades in Washington, McCain has given a master class in maverickism, and it is for this he will be most remembered So it is fitting, perhaps that the inveterate fighter is taking on Trumpanother Republican politician who rose by bucking GOP orthodoxyin his final battle, and bequeathing to the nation a bookful of advice on how to be the rightkind of maverick Politico It is clear McCain wants this booksure to be his lastto be a guide for standing up for oppressed people around the globe, as he has done for decades CNN Republican Senator John McCain is known as a maverick, familiar with tough fights, from prison camps in Vietnam to the floor of the U.S Senate Recently, he has been staying close to the Arizona ranch he calls home, as he undergoes treatment for brain cancerbut he still speaks his mind In The Restless Wave there are reflections about living and past decisions, but it also makes clear that McCain still has plenty to say about America, American society, and politics in the age of President Trump PBS NewsHour The Restless Waveis the seventh and final book McCain has written with longtime collaborator Mark Salter.Focused on his past 20 years of public life and a few major topics, its McCain on McCain, even uncensored than usual Which makes it fun, no matter your politics New York Daily News Sometimes rueful, sometimes defiant, always affecting Even McCains political opponents should admire the fiery grace with which hes exiting the world Kirkus Review It is rich in his beliefs on a number of subjects critical to America.He has a particular gift for illustrating his points with stories of a wide variety of people whom he has encountered, at home and abroad.Mr McCain as a politician was positive and irascible, an interesting combination His well known disposition toward straight talk is evident throughout the book.America will miss this man in our public life This book makes it very clear why Pittsburgh Post Gazette If you havent gotten the book, it is really worth getting You dont need to agree politically, but as an American and as a human being, I think this is a book everybody should read Whoopi Goldberg, The View An elegiac memoir the maverick Republican senator from Arizona has produced a personal memoir that is frank, poignant and ultimately a sobering commentary about the state of American democracy and world leadership T he Financial Times Moving.Rather than a response to extraordinary times, this fine memoir reads like a requiem of a long, patriotic life Publishers Weekly Online Revisit a life fully lived in SenatorJohn McCains swan song, The Restless Wave Entertainment Weekly This is a very different look back at a remarkable life and career.McCain and Salters book is definitely worth reading in fact, its one that I wish every member of Congress and staffer would read His vantage point on what has happened in politics and in
