Arizona Sen. John McCain's two bestselling memoirs written with Mark Salter, Faith of My Fathers and Worth the Fighting For, chronicle his Vietnam War experiences and his many years as a prisoner of war. His new bestseller, Why Courage Matters: The Way to a Braver Life (also written with Salter), features stories of both well-known and ordinary people who, in his words, "are the best examples of what it means to triumph over adversity." Reviews have been very good, including PW's: "These compelling life stories stand up against the best passages of McCain's previous works." After six trips to press, Random House reports more than 100,000 copies in print.
