A surprisingly good narrator, the famous senator has two previous bestselling audios--WORTH FIGHTING FOR and FAITH OF OUR FATHERS. In this one, his well-known emotional depth and stony convictions are put to good use talking about a bedrock quality of the well-lived life: courage. "Courage is not the absence of fear but the capacity for action despite our fears," he says, while sharing stories of ordinary people who risked everything to help others or to honor a principle. McCain's writing is personal--it's unusually touching for that of a political figure. The audio is inspiring without being sentimental or sensational. A satisfying character lesson will make you want to hear more about this man's life and thoughts. T.W. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 04]
