Overview

"Second Chance: The Mark Sanford Story" takes a deep dive into the story of one of the nation’s most riveting political dramas. Mark Sanford seemed to have it all: A beautiful wife and family, wealth, and promising career that put him at the center of the nation’s debate over its financial future. He had even been mentioned as a possible candidate for vice president and president. And then he threw it all away. In a public meltdown more vivid than any reality show, he confessed to having an affair with his “soul mate” in Argentina. Then, he took a chance and threw his hat into yet another campaign – and a chance for redemption.

Based on in-depth interviews and new unpublished documents, two-time Pulitzer finalist Tony Bartelme tells a saga of success, deceit and a man’s quest to discover the roots of his failure. While the spotlight has shined brightly on Sanford’s triumphs and failures, "Second Chance: The Mark Sanford Story" probes the roots of the man at the center of this epic drama.

The book includes more than 75 pages of text and 50 pages of photos and documents.

    The e-book was well written and held my interest but I can't bring myself to admire the subject. What have we here but another plagued with insecurities human who over compensates with deceit and manipulation to hide his inadequacies? Who, eventually makes it to the halls of power using those around him. When a wife, children, life events, accomplishments still do not offer enough in the way of ego-stroking that he trolls for sycophants, sexual or otherwise to prop up his imagined consequence. Who has now decided to conveniently live in the present since the hollowness of his attempts at repair would otherwise haunt him were he truly to consider his malignant waywardness.

    I'm not from South Carolina, but I've followed Mark Sanford's career in politics for years. And why not? It's almost like riding a roller-coaster. He went from nothing to a prominent congressman, then became governor and a standard-bearer for the Tea Party. I remember people talking about how he might be on the presidential ticket one day, and how all that talk went silent after he embarrassed himself by saying he was hiking on the Appalachian Trail. This is a very short but very deep book -- it's more like a long magazine story that you can read in one sitting -- but it gets into the meat of why Sanford is the way he is.
