    Eye Opener

    This was a difficult read for someone from Massachusetts who grew up hearing the worship of the Kennedy brothers and the story of "Camelot." Well written eye opener that I recommend to everyone, "friend and foe alike"

    Good winter book to read

    I loved it! It dispelled some of the aura of royalty that had enveloped the Kennedy family for so long.

    Hershe has hit the nail on the head, again.

    Seymore Hersh is a legend in the investigative reporting field. In this book Hersh tries to desiminate information currently released from the closed file of the currently viewable Kennedy Library. In between the now semi-public files of Kennedy's adminstration, Hersh fills in the gaps and provides excellant credibility with his relentless testimony of the most credible witneses, I.E. Kennedy's secret service agents, Members of staff, retired politicians, and so on. Hersh leads the reader through Joe Kennedy's ruthless abadonment at getting his son elected at any cost, John's personal life during his administration, and the death and resulting fallout that ensued. If it were any other author, I too would be a skeptic. However, Hersh has been to reliable an author to not sit up and pay attention. Though the reader might feel uncomfortable with some of the incidents that are revealed, feel good in the fact that what you are reading is the result of an honest, hardworking, pulitzer prise winning author. Hersh in my opinion is a modern day historian.
