Every Day is Extra by John Kerry

Every Day is Extra by John Kerry


John Kerry tells the story of his remarkable American life—from son of a diplomat to decorated Vietnam veteran, five-term United States senator, 2004 Democratic presidential nominee, and Secretary of State for four years—a revealing memoir by a witness to some of the most important events of our recent history.

The author recounts many close friendships, reflects on his political values, and writes movingly on issues of faith. This book reveals a man of quiet, passionate patriotism, immense intelligence, and thoughtfulness.
