Overview

The story of how a coal miner's son of limited means fueled his journey to becoming a successful business man and politician through self-drive and a desire for change and the betterment of his country.

Joseph L. Bruno is a small town American success story. As the son of immigrants, he worked his way out of Depression-era Glens Falls, NY, served in the United States Army in Korea, and as the leader of the Senate Republicans in New York, became one of the three most powerful men in the state. During his fourteen years in the Senate, he forged coalitions, achieved compromises, and brought together feuding legislative factions for the common good.

Senator Bruno represents a rare form of politician, one who knows that when the race is over, you have to shake hands with your opponent and govern, in order to provide a better quality of life for the people you represent.

Within these pages you will meet household names like Rudy Giuliani, Russell Simmons, Hillary Clinton, Al D'Amato, Donald Trump and Eliot Spitzer--and see them as you never have before--in the hallways where decisions are made and in behind the scenes conversations amongst friends and opponents.

In this brand new autobiography, Senator Bruno reminds us all that you never know what life has to offer next. In the face of adversity all you need to do is Keep Swinging.

Features color and black and white photo insert.
