Summary

Praise for Man of the People ''John McCain is a real man. By that I mean he has faults and weaknesses like anybody else. But he has supplemented those with a ferocious courage and intensity. Paul Alexander brings McCain's life to life in a way the reader will never forget.'' -Bill O'Reilly, anchor, The O'Reilly Factor ''If I were looking for a politician to clean the corporate pigsty, it would be John McCain. In Man of the People, Paul Alexander artfully captures the drive, the integrity, and the tenacity that make John McCain such a one-of-a-kind politician.'' -Arianna Huffington, political columnist and author, Pigs in the Trough: How Corporate Greed and Political Corruption are Undermining America ''Man of the People is the story of John McCain's unique American journey from the Naval Academy to the Hanoi Hilton, from the U.S. Senate to a presidential campaign that set the standard for honor, dignity, courage and truth in a year when those qualities were often politics' first casualty. I have had no greater privilege in all my life than finding and then standing on common ground with John McCain, and I look forward to fighting side by side with him on yet another day to make our country stronger. Paul Alexander has taken the full measure of this special man-the genuine article, a true citizen soldier through and through-and captured the essence of the John McCain I know and love.'' -Senator John F. Kerry of Massachusetts
