"If history at its best is about telling storiesthat bring the past to life, then Chris Matthews is a master storyteller, forthis fascinating portrait brings Jack Kennedy more vividly to life than anyrecent work.--Doris Kearns Goodwin, author of Team of Rivals

Political commentator and TV host Matthews's scholarship and research shine through in this Kennedy biography as he explores the question: "What was he like?" Having completed extensive interviews with Kennedy compatriots from his prep school, college, and navy years and including notes from Jacqueline Kennedy's first post-assassination interview, Matthews pre-sents a new, clearer view of the former President. These early recollections put much of Kennedy's philosophy, ambitions, and passions into perspective. Popular myths are refuted, explained, and celebrated in this comprehensive account by a man who clearly admired and identified with his subject. But he doesn't just praise JFK; the flaws and warts are also here, with the aim to pre-sent the whole man who changed the face of American politics through both his life and his untimely death. VERDICT Holter Graham provides a thoughtful and well-paced reading to a biography that one might race through in print. Highly recommended for students of history and those who love a good storyteller. ["Readers wanting a lively overview of Kennedy, the flawed man and inspiring leader, should turn to this poignant study," read the review of the S. & S. hc, LJ 9/1/11.-Ed.]-Joyce Kessel, Villa Maria Coll., Buffalo (c) Copyright 2012.
