Praise

“Jack Kemp was the most forward-looking, open-hearted, big-tented Republican of our time (save, perhaps, Ronald Reagan). In this beautifully written biography, Morton Kondracke and Fred Barnes capture the energy, optimism, intellectual fire, and social conscience of this fascinating man.”
—CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER, author of Things That Matter

“Jack Kemp was my mentor, and he inspired a whole generation of conservatives to think big. In this book, Mort Kondracke and Fred Barnes write with the same infectious energy that Jack had. Jack taught Republicans to speak to people’s aspirations, and this is the story of how he did it. Anyone who wants to spark an ‘American Renaissance’ should read this book.”
—REP. PAUL RYAN (R-WI)

“I’ve long admired what Jack Kemp represented as an American statesman: the idea that reasonable people can come together, in spite of their differences, to advance policies that make America better. I was deeply touched by Jack’s personal interest in my own work, and I consider him a friend and a teacher. I hope more people are able to learn the lessons he helped teach me.”
—SENATOR CORY BOOKER (D-NJ)

“Jack Kemp was one of those rare politicians who didn’t have a mean bone in his body. From the football field to the House of Representatives he was the same person—unfailingly upbeat, deeply committed to ideas, and able to talk with anyone in a way that reached them. In Jack Kemp we get the whole man whom we can admire and care for at the same time.”
—BILL BRADLEY, former U.S. senator (D-NJ)

“Jack Kemp was an American original, big and bold in a political era that tended to produce small and safe men. Morton Kondracke and Fred Barnes give Kemp the biography he deserves, a vivid and memorable account of an energetic life.”
—JON MEACHAM, author of Destiny and Power

“Kondracke and Barnes have teamed up again, this time to paint an engaging portrait of a man on a mission who had an outsized influence on the course of our country.”
—SENATOR LAMAR ALEXANDER (R-TN)

“Jack Kemp was a man for his time and, as this compelling biography makes clear, a man for our time as well. Read it for his absorbing personal story and read it for his ideas as well.”
—BRIT HUME, senior political analyst, Fox News

“Morton Kondracke and Fred Barnes capture Jack Kemp’s story in a sure-footed narrative that leaves no doubt about Kemp’s significance as supply-side evangelist and compassionate conservative.”
—ROBERT W. MERRY, author of A Country of Vast Designs
