Annotation:
MSNBC personality Chris Matthews can skew alternately right or left politically, but in this glowing biography of President John F. Kennedy, he clearly establishes himself as a Kennedy fan. His book makes use of discussions with Kennedy employees and intimates, and captures the ruggedly individualistic, Churchill-worshipping leader who may have become a great president had fate not intervened. Matthews does not turn a blind eye to Kennedy's faults, but provides a complicated picture of the man, his overbearing father, the family dynasty, and the society that both nurtured him and was briefly led by him.

Praise

"In [this] engaging biography . . . Chris Matthews firmly sets the nation's first Roman Catholic president in the context of his family. Matthews . . . makes no secret of his fervent admiration for Kennedy, but does not shy away from pointing to his shortcomings." - Jacob Heilbrunn 11/06/2011
