ABSTRACT
The article presents an overview of the book "Adlai Stevenson" by John Bartlow Martin, who introduces politician Adlai Stevenson to the readers. He called Stevenson the U.S. Democratic Party's most unusual candidate for the Presidency. From the book, one may learn how the young Governor of Illinois works at his job, the long solitary night hours at his desk in the executive mansion in Springfield and the similar hours alone in his room on the 22nd floor of the state office building in Chicago. The book gives true insight into his heart and his amazing self-revealing speeches.
