Yet another great read by John McCain, one of our best Senators today who should have been President--oh, what a grand state we would be in today if he had the helm! His books always help us to understand the important points of being an ethical, idealistic, moral citizen, and relate incidents in the lives of people who have had to take the high moral ground, suffer through adversity, take a stand for righteousness and Justice, and "do the right thing". Interesting insights in these pages from a true American hero who does not just pay lip service and hollow platitudes to what we should be....he has been there!

Taking you through some of the most challenging decisions and stories of the last 100 years, McCain gives unique insights into the decision making process and difficult choices made my some of the best known - and also little known - leaders of modern times. Whether a POW, a President, a business owner or a teacher, the lessons conveyed by this audio book were well received and truly made the reader think. A good addition to the leader's bookshelf or audio library.

This book is very pleasantly surprising, from the former Republican candidate for President. McCain, with collaborator Mark Salter, identifies the qualities he believes leaders need to make good decisions on important matters, then, after a brief definition (with specific examples) of the quality and why he considers it so essential to good "hard calls," he tells stories of several historical decisions that illustrate each quality, along with the character, biographies and accomplishments of those who made those decisions. The people he describes range from Churchill and Truman to Branch Rickey, "Ma Ellen" of Liberia, and Robert Gould Shaw; each of these people made crucial, hard decisions that affected many others beyond their own lives. The qualities McCain identifies are positive and surprising, including humility and inspiration. The stories are all inspiring. What a good, uplifting read!

I found this to be filled with interestingly presented facts. I loved it. I play this disc when I travel and I have played it over and over because I am wowed by the information. My politics are different from John McCain's so I wasn't sure about purchasing this. However, now I buy the discs as gifts because it is a powerful gift. Those who have received it from me have complimented it also.

This is simply a great book almost entirely devoid of politics - except as relevant to the person's story. The people McCain chose are great and the way he ties a couple people events together is entertaining. I often buy several copies and send them to friends and family. And I ask them to pass them along.

With all of the biased coverage of news these days, it is important to find information to give balance to the whole picture. This book, with its choices of material, is an excellent example of what a person needs to read to help form opinions and delve through all of the "stuff" that bombards us daily. Add it to your list of "must reads" today, and enjoy it all!

McCain (& Salter) break down decision making skills into categories. He then profiles multiple men & women past & present, as to how they made the sometimes hard calls that life presents us. Some good decisions, some not so good, are both covered. A great guidance for adolescents and adults. McCain includes his own experience of being shot down and also gives some insight on how decisions are made within the political reality of being a member of Congress.
