Publisher's Summary

Maverick Senator John McCain has always been famous for his candor, humor, and integrity. Now, in his latest book, McCain interweaves the stories of the leaders who influenced him (especially Billy Mitchell, a general who went against Navy brass to pioneer the creation of the U.S. Air Force) with chapters from his own life story. Hear about his last days in the navy; his first run for Congress; his education as a U.S. Senator; and his electrifying run for the Presidency in 2000. Worth the Fighting For is enlivened by the voice of an honest man searching for honor and meaning through public service in times of conflict. It is one man's story, but it is very much a story for us all.

    "Maybe he'd be a good president, but ..."

    McCain is an admirable man of remarkable character. But this book is overly long, full of self justification, and not particularly well read. It has some interesting contemporary history, but would have been much more compelling (and made the author much more sympathetic) if it had given us more insight into his military career and had less about how who disappointed him in Washington.

    "Get to know McCain"

    I read this because I wanted to know more about McCain. I do know more about him. I did like some of his stories and his thoughts. Generally, you read a book and like the writer better than before you read the book. Interestingly, I read McCain's description of himself and came away liking him less.
