Praise
"This judicious and thorough book is likely to be the most comprehensive and balanced study of the life and career of Robert F. Kennedy for a long time to come."
"In his magisterial new biography, Evan Thomas brilliantly paints the picture of a troubled yet earnest man."
"Mr. Thomas [writes] without the sentimentality that accompanies so much Kennedy hagiography. Indeed, Mr. Thomas is unsparing in his depiction of a man who truly could be as unpleasant and, yes, ruthless as his many, many enemies insisted....With subtle foreshadowing and an objective eye, Evan Thomas makes the case that Bobby Kennedy's transformation came from within. Even the worldly and the cynical will take away from this biography a greater appreciation of the Kennedys in general, and Robert Kennedy in particular."
"An impressively researched, richly detailed, tightly written account ....This is a warts-and-all potrait that is the single indispensable book about Robert Kennedy."
"Thomas' book is exemplary. He knows how far the evidence will take him and how far it will not....The emotional pitch says high, where it belongs. Thomas knows he need not be maudlin. The life of Robert Kennedy does not need a boost to break the heart."
From the Publisher
Annotation Based on unique access to both family and friends, as well as official sources, this biography reexamines Robert Kennedy's character, his unique dedication to family, and his service to his nation. A New York Times Notable Book for 2000.
First Line For all his desire to shape and promote his children, Joseph P. Kennedy does not seem to have paid much attention to the schooling of his third son and seventh child.
Editors Note A wide-ranging, well-researched biography of Robert Kennedy delves deeply into the life of this shy, crusading, and sometimes ruthless politician, uncovering his use of "back channels" in politics, his involvement with Marilyn Monroe, and the campaign that ended with his assassination.
Editors Note 3 He was "Good Bobby," who, as his brother Ted eulogized him, "saw wrong and tried to right it . . . saw suffering and tried to heal it." And "Bad Bobby," the ruthless and manipulative bully of countless conspiracy theories. Thomas's unvarnished but sympathetic and fair-minded portrayal is packed with new details about Kennedy's early life and his behind-the-scenes machinations, including new revelations about the 1960 and 1968 presidential campaigns, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and his long struggles with J. Edgar Hoover and Lyndon Johnson.
