Honest and heartening, Citizen Mack is Senator Connie Mack’s memoir of an 18-year journey to and from Capitol Hill. From speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast, addressing the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, and casting historic votes on issues ranging from sending troops to war, to the impeachment of a president and the nomination of a controversial Supreme Court justice, Mack’s account of his time in office offers outsiders a look at what happens at the highest levels of American politics.
“Citizen Mack is a wonderful book about a very full life. Connie Mack was successful in politics—he never lost a race—but he also understands that there is a world beyond Washington and the next campaign. His account of his spiritual journey is honest, humble, and explains much about the man and his life of service.” – Former Vice President Dick Cheney
