In this candid new political memoir from Senator John McCain, an American hero reflects on his life—and what matters most.

“I don’t know how much longer I’ll be here. Maybe I’ll have another five years. Maybe, with the advances in oncology, they’ll find new treatments for my cancer that allows you to extend my life. Maybe I’ll be gone before you read this. My predicament is, well, slightly unpredictable. But I’m prepared for either contingency, or no less than I’m getting prepared. I have some things I’d like to maintain first, some work that needs finishing, and some people I wish to see. And I wish to talk to my fellow Americans a little more if I may.”

So writes John McCain in this inspiring, moving, frank, and deeply personal memoir. Written whilst confronting a mortal illness, McCain looks back with appreciation on his years in the Senate, his historic 2008 campaign for the presidency against Barack Obama, and his crusades on behalf of democracy and human rights in Eastern Europe and the Middle East.

All the time the fighter, McCain attacks the “spurious nationalism” and political polarization afflicting American policy. He makes an impassioned case for democratic internationalism and bi-partisanship. He tells stories of his most satisfying moments of public service, including his work with another giant of the Senate, Edward M. Kennedy. Senator McCain recalls his disagreements with several presidents, and minces no words in his objections to a couple of President Trump’s statements and policies. At the same time, he offers a positive vision of The united states that looks beyond the Trump presidency.

The Restless Wave is John McCain at his best.
