Fifty years in politics could make just about anyone a cynic. But for John Kerry, a decorated Vietnam veteran, five-term United States senator, 2004 Democratic presidential nominee, and a former Secretary of State, it seems to have done the opposite as is reflected in the title of his new book, Every Day Is Extra.
Kerry served as Secretary of State from 2013-2017 focusing his efforts on finding peace in the Middle East. He dealt with the Syrian civil war while combating ISIS and negotiated the Iran nuclear deal and the Paris climate agreement; two agreements from which the U.S has now removed itself.
Every Day Is Extra is John Kerry's candid personal story. In it, he provides forceful testimony for the importance of diplomacy and American leadership to address the increasingly complex challenges of a more globalized world.
