“You have certainly captured much of my father’s spirit and enthusiasm for the politics and priorities of our nation.”– Former Minnesota Attorney General Hubert H. “Skip” Humphrey III


“My father was s dedicated public servant and true statesmen.  Crass illustrates his passion for politics and sense of humor that resonated with people on both sides of the aisle.” – Former Senator Mark Udall


“Historians look at my father’s 1964 Presidential campaign and paint him as an ideologue.  But his only rigidity throughout his long life was a common-sense, speak his mind, freedom for all creed mentality personified by kindness and devotion to those around him.  Scott Crass portrays this beautifully.” – Former Congressman Barry Goldwater, Jr.


“Scott Crass has been able to retell the stories of the famous as well as those little known legislators who made a real difference in people’s lives.  He deserves high credit for enlightening a new generation about the politics of the 60’s and 70’s.  Dad would have enjoyed the book.”  – Rosemary O’Neill, daughter of former House Speaker Thomas P. “Tip” O’Neill
