From Dust Jacket -
"After five and a half years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam, naval aviator John McCain returned home a changed man. " He resumed his military career, went on to be elected to the U. S. Congress and later to the U. S. Senate. "During his time in public office, McCain has seen acts of principle and acts of craven self-interest. He describes both extremes in these pages, with his characteristic straight talk and humor. He writes honestly of the lowest point in his career, the Keating Five saving and loan debacle, as well as his trimumphant moments - his return to Vietnam and his efforts to normalize relations between the US and Vietnamese governments; his fight for campaign finance reform; and his galvanizing bid for the presidency in 2000.
