About the Author
Runs for the U.S. Senate in 1974 and Las Vegas mayor in 1976 resulted in defeat, and Reid assumed his political career was over, until in 1977, the governor appointed him chairman of the Nevada Gaming Commission, where for four years he made headlines with his unrelenting fight to clean up the gaming industry. He won the first of two terms to the House of Representatives in 1982, then was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1986. Currently serving his fourth term, he was unanimously elected Senate Minority Leader in 2004 and, after the Democrats captured the Senate in 2006, Senate Majority Leader.
Mark Warren is Executive Editor of Esquire magazine, where he has worked since 1988, directing much of the magazine’s political writing. He also collaborated with Thomas P.M. Barnett on The Pentagon’s New Map, which originated with a story in Esquire, as well as Barnett’s Blueprint for Action. Born, raised and educated in Texas, Warren directed or worked on several national, state and political campaigns out of Austin from 1983 to 1988, and was also a chief of staff to a senator from Houston. He lives in New York City.

Certanly there can be no doubt why this man is who he is and where he is in this life. It has trully been a road and a tough one at that. Yep, nothing has been given to Harry Reid. He sure has more than earned his mark. Great Book.
