approaches the investigation of courage from a position of unease at
how diluted a commodity it has become in our society, and at how
shallowly the label is applied. In offering anecdotes of individuals
whose actions embody the rarity of true courage, his well-drawn
examples range from Navajo leaders to Colorado River explorers to
Jewish freedom fighter Hannah Seneshand Burmese dissident and Nobel
Peace Prize-recipient Aung San Suu Kyi. He reflects on the wellsprings
of courage, defining it as conscious self-sacrifice "for the sake of
others or to uphold a virtue," encompassing actions that may be spurred
by honor, outrage, a sense of duty, one's conscience, or moral
obligation. He is self-critical and careful to avoid personal
aggrandizement, but coaches readers to believe that one can use "fear
[as] the opportunity for courage," and, by tackling modest daily
challenges, increase the probability of summoning deeper reserves when
needed. The book is not a primer but is, rather, a declaration of why
striving for courage is fundamentally important as an attribute of
character. The anecdotes are the most crisply written portions; the
text becomes less taut and more hazy when addressing abstractions such
as the qualities and types of courage, but focus and momentum are
usually restored, often by a signature McCain sound bite.
