Citizen Mack: Politics, an Honorable Calling is former Republican US Senator Connie Mack III's memoir, detailing his life in the world of Washington DC politics, and where that lead him afterwards. From his beginning as a member of the House of Representatives from Florida through the 80s, to his escalation to a Senator for the duration of the 90s, Mack offers an inside look into the political culture and climate of the nation as it closed out the twentieth century and progressed into the twenty first. Readers will experience a thorough and honest account of what the world of Washington looks like, from a man whom George W. Bush wanted as his running mate; who took part in the debate over one of the country's most contentious Supreme Court Justice Appointments; whose voice mattered when it came to deciding whether to remove President Bill Clinton from office, following his impeachment by the House. All this and more Mack recounts as a once-politician, now-citizen: Citizen Mack.

In 1982, Connie Mack left a successful banking career to run for the House of Representatives, where he served three terms before running for one of Florida's seats in the US Senate. He served two terms there, then chose not to run for reelection or to accept George W. Bush's offer to be his running mate in 2000. On returning to the private sector, Mack became chairman and then chairman emeritus of the H. Lee Moffitt Comprehensive Cancer Center in Tampa. He and his wife, Priscilla, divide their time between Florida and Vermont. They have two children, six grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. Mack is the grandson, and namesake, of the Hall of Fame baseball figure who managed teams to major league records in both total wins and total losses. His grandfather on his mother's side, Morris Sheppard, served as a United States senator from Texas from 1913 until 1941.
