- Author: Bill Bradley
In a memoir at once deeply felt, lively, & astute, Bill Bradley talks about his life, his country, his role in government, & his hopes for the American future. He speaks with affection about his small-town Missouri upbringing & the values shaped by it. He traces his road from childhood to Princeton to Oxford to ten years of professional basketball to public service in the U.S. Senate. He brings vividly alive the world of a senator -- the rocky road to legislation, the invasiveness of the media, the power of money. He tells us stories of scoundrels & heroes, of celebrated political figures past & present, & unheralded citizens. A marvelous book.
