    Fascinating Read

    "Brothers" by David Talbot is a must-read of the Kennedy Administration. Talbot provides a detailed backdrop of the tensions and conflicts that the Kennedy Administration faced. Talbot doesn't shy away from the dark issues that shroud how the Kennedys reached the White House nor the implications of who really assassinated JFK. "Brothers" is a perhaps also a reminder of the stark realities that we face today.

    Over my lifetime I've probably read over 25 books on the topic of the Kennedys, their lives, and their assassinations, and this one is one of the best. I absolutely couldn't put it down. I found myself getting a better grasped of the challenges that JFK faced while in office than ever before. The author tracks down every living person he could both within the Kennedy circle, and outside of it, to give the reader a clear vision of what exactly was going on both before and after both Kennedy assassinations. I'm fairly picky about the books I decide to spend money on, but this one was worth every penny.

    Not very interesting/ Did not like writing style.

    Talbot provides a lot of unimportant information I felt that I didn't need to know the backgrounds of so many unimportant people. I gave up about half way through it. I am currently reading The Dark Side of Camelot BY Seymour Hersh in its place. Hersh's book provides many more of the details and facts that I was interested in regarding the Kennedy administration and its dark side.
