“Franklin Roosevelt had Louis Howe and Harry Hopkins, JFK had Ted Sorensen and Arthur Schlesinger Jr., and John McCain had Mark Salter. In this compelling, honest, and much-needed book, Salter, McCain’s longtime coauthor and adviser, captures the raucous, resilient, and invigorating spirit of the late war hero and legendary senator. McCain wasn’t always right, but he was always decent, and Salter’s terrific account reminds us of what public service—and public servants—ought to be like.”—Jon Meacham
The Luckiest Man: Life with John McCain, is Mark Salter’s deeply personal and candid remembrance of the late Senator by one of his closest and most trusted confidants, friends, and political advisors. Salter had unparalleled access to the Senator’s thoughts and actions, cowriting seven books with him. Through Salter’s revealing portrayal McCain emerges as both the man we knew him to be and someone entirely new. Join Pulitzer Prize winning author Jon Meacham whose latest book is His Truth is Marching On: John Lewis & The Power of Hope and Mark Salter for a Master Class on one of America’s most respected and admired public figures—John McCain.
