Speaker: Lessons from Forty Years in Coaching and Politics
"In Speaker: Lessons from Forty Years of Coaching and Politics, Denny Hastert breaks his silence to tell a remarkable American story: how he grew up among the fields of Northern Illinois, made a name for himself as a high school and collegiate wrestler, became a high school wrestling and football coach and civics teacher ... and eventually found himself teaching, and learning about, civics in the most important forum in the world - the United States Congress as Speaker of the House, the third most powerful man in government."--Jacket.
