"Pennsylvania Cable Network has put together a remarkable book about an incredible public figure whose work benefited Pennsylvanians more than anyone other than Ben Franklin.  From Kansas to Philadelphia to Washington D.C., PCN has chronicled the triumphs and failures of Arlen Specter in a way that gives the reader insight into who he was."

- Edward G. Rendell, Mayor of Philadelphia 1992-2000, Governor of Pennsylvania 2003-2011

"What a life, what a career! Arlen Specter is a great American story, his life a walk through recent history. His experiences (including campaigns for D.A., mayor, governor, senator, and president) told in his own unique, often humorous voice amount to a course in political science.  This oral history shows why journalists, including myself, relished covering the guy."


- John Baer, Philadelphia Daily News
