From the Publisher:
In this extraordinary memoir, John F. Kennedy's closest advisor recounts in full for the first time his experience counseling Kennedy through the most dramatic moments in American history. Illuminating, revelatory, and gripping, Counselor is the brilliant, long-awaited memoir from the remarkable man who shaped the presidency and the legacy of one of the greatest leaders America has ever known.
In this political and historical memoir, the famed Kennedy advisor and speechwriter Ted Sorenson provides an insider's account of those days in Camelot and the special relationship he had with JFK. Sorenson is a loyalist to the end, and he does not share the sordid details of his boss's now legendary extracurricular activities. Yet this is no hagiographic account. Rather, it is a mature and honest reflection on a forever-young politician whom he admires still, and on the 1000-day presidency that was cut short by an assassin's bullet. Sorenson addresses rumors that he authored, or co-authored, Kennedy's Pulitzer Prize-winning book, PROFILES IN COURAGE, and how the issue clouded his relations with Jacqueline and the Kennedy family.
