Speaker: lessons from forty years in coaching and politics.


Hastert, Dennis


Program air date: August 15, 2004


Denny Hastert is one of the most powerful men in America - and yet chances are you know little or nothing about him. And Denny Hastert likes it that way. Not because he has anything to hide, but because he doesn't care about who gets the credit. He just wants to get the job done for the American people.."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."--BOOK JACKET.
