From the Publisher:
Based on interviews with some of his closest associates, a new portrait of the 35th president by the host of Hardball traces his early education through the end of his life and includes coverage of such topics as his privileged childhood, military service and struggles with a life-threatening disease. Simultaneous. (biography & autobiography).
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
