Críticas:

"Hard to top and impossible to read without being moved."--"USA Today"Restrained and honest. . . . Lively and readable. A testament to the martial values of honor and patriotism. . . . It is impossible to read this book without realizing that a hero is what he is."--"New York Times"A remarkable personal history. . . . Unconventional and interesting. . . . McCain [offers]. . . what is probably far closer to the real man than is to be found in most books of this stripe."--"Washington Post Book World"McCain's character has withstood tests the average politician can only imagine. . . . He may be the last of his kind."--"Newsweek"A good read . . . engaging, sometimes funny, and often profoundly moving. . . . The family stories, the naval history, the fighter-jock anecdotes, and the stoic bravery of the POWs--makes for a large, almost unwieldy, and sublimely American story. . . . If you are yourself a patriot and find yourself stirred by stories of honest patriotism, then you will surely find "Faith of My Fathers irresistible."--"National Review"Eloquent and honest."--"New York Review of Books"A fascinating history of a remarkable military family. . . . He gets to the core of those ineffable qualities of wartime brotherhood and self-sacrifice that are so far beyond common notions of patriotism. "Faith of My Fathers does this better than any book I've read by a Vietnam vet."--"Christian Science Monitor"A breath of fresh air. . . . Compelling, harrowing. . . and bluntly self-critical."--"Seattle Post Intelligencer""Faith of My Fathers is a powerful story of a war hero. In it we learn much of what matters most. As prisoner (and later Senator) McCain instructs us: Glory is not an end in itself,but rather a reward for valor and faith. And the greatest freedom and human fulfillment comes from engagin in a noble enterprise larger than oneself. "Faith of My Fathers teaches deep truths that are valid in any age but that warrant special attention in our own."--William Bennett""Faith of My Fathers is a gripping story of character and courage: character passed down from generation to generation by sterling examples of family bonds and devotion to duty; courage that ultimately comes form within, as John McCain learned in the brutal prison camps of North Vietnam. This is a sobering and glorious book that you won't be able to put down."--General Colin L. Powell (retired)"A serious, utterly gripping account of faith, fathers, and the military."--"Publishers Weekly

Reseña del editor:

In a family memoir, the Navy veteran and U.S. senator describes the military careers of his grandfather and father, both four-star admirals, his own experiences as a POW in Vietnam, and his political career, examining the relationship between fathers and sons and how it shaped his feelings about honor.
