Faith of my fathers by John McCain ( Book )
29 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and held by 3,875 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
John McCain is one of the most admired leaders in the United States government, but his deeply felt memoir of family and war is not a political one and ends before his election to Congress. With candor and ennobling power, McCain tells a story that, in the words of Newsweek, "makes the other presidential candidates look like pygmies." John McCain learned about life and honor from his grandfather and father, both four-star admirals in the U.S. Navy. This is a memoir about their lives, their heroism, and the ways that sons are shaped and enriched by their fathers
Worth the fighting for : a memoir by John McCain ( Book )
12 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 1,933 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"After five and a half years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam, naval aviator John McCain returned home a changed man. Regaining his health and flight-eligibility status, he resumed his military career, commanding carrier pilots and serving as the navy's liaison to what is sometimes ironically called the world's most exclusive club, the United States Senate. Accompanying Senators John Tower and Henry "Scoop" Jackson on international trips, McCain began his political education in the company of two masters, leaders whose standards he would strive to maintain upon his election to the U.S. Congress. There, he learned valuable lessons in cooperation from a good-humored congressman from the other party, Morris Udall. In 1986, McCain was elected to the U.S. Senate, inheriting the seat of another role model, Barry Goldwater." "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 savings and loan debacle, as well as his triumphant moments - his return to Vietnam and his efforts to normalize relations between the U.S. and Vietnamese governments; his fight for campaign finance reform; and his galvanizing bid for the presidency in 2000"--Jacket

Worth the fighting for the education of an American maverick and the heroes who inspired him by John McCain ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
After five and a half years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam, naval aviator John McCain returned home a changed man. Regaining his health and flight-eligibility status, he resumed his military career, commanding carrier pilots and serving as the navy's liaison to what is sometimes ironically called the world's most exclusive club, the United States Senate. From there to his election to the U.S. congress and eventually the Senate, this is the story of McCain's American odyssey, and the values he learned from an intriguing array of heroes, including baseball legend Ted Williams, President Theodore Roosevelt, Congressman Morris Udall, Senator Henry "Scoop" Jackson, and visionary aviation proponent Billy Mitchell. -Back cover
