From Orrin Hatch, one of the most widely respected and best-known legislators in America, comes a deeply personal book: part essay on how politics should be practiced, part memoir of how he has tried to embody those principles during his long and very successful tenure in the U.S. Senate-the only public office he's ever held. Hatch addresses the true role of a public servant, the importance of having convictions and when to yield on them, and how a politician survives personal attacks. He gives behind-the-scenes insights into what really went on during the Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings, and the Clinton impeachment hearings. And he stakes his position in the debate over human cloning and stem cell research. This is a surprising book from one of the great political mavericks of our time.
