Kerry served as a prosecutor in Massachusetts, then as lieutenant governor and was elected to the Senate in 1984, eventually serving five terms. In 2004 he was the Democratic presidential nominee and came within one state --- Ohio --- of winning. Kerry returned to the Senate, chaired the important Foreign Relations Committee and succeeded Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State in 2013. In that position he tried to find peace in the Middle East; dealt with the Syrian civil war while combatting ISIS; and negotiated the Iran nuclear deal and the Paris climate agreement. EVERY DAY IS EXTRA is Kerry’s passionate, insightful, sometimes funny, always moving account of his life.
