    Wonderful!!!!!!!

    I thought that this book was wonderful! I couldn't put it down and since finnishing it I have re-read it a number of times. Each time finding something new and interesting about each of the Kennedy women. They certainly are an amazing group.

    ALL YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT THE KENNEDYS!!!!

    From other books that I read I always felt sorry for Rose Kennedy. I now only feel sorry for her children. What an uncaring Mother and Grandmother. She raised uncaring and unfeeling children. The only "good" Mother as far as I can see was Jackie Kennedy. There is so much that I have learned from this book.

    Entertaining and Insightful

    I thought I knew a fair amount about the Kennedy's in general but this book was so insighful as to why the Kennedy's are the way they are. Every generation learned from the one before it. Those lessons were often about greed, lust and privledge. The Kennedy women always put the men first: fathers, husbands and brothers. Sadly the women were victims of the times in terms of religious upbringing and a total lack of sexual insight. For all their entitlement there was often a loneliness that was not shared aloud but endured.
    Eunice Shriver passed away as I was finishing the book and Ted soon after. Eunice would have far outshined her brother had she been a man. I am old enough to remember Teddy as he was so have never been impressed by him. I do however respect him for being the father figure to all his siblings children - in that role he truly shined.

    The most informative Kennedy book to date!

    This was a wonderfully written book going into great detail and to an extent that i have never before seen in a book about the Kennedy women. I highly recommend it to anyone that has an interest in the wonderful Kennedy family.

    Very good - comprehensive

    All the Kennedy women, past and present are detailed. The author spends a lot of time on Rose Kennedy and it was very interesting, since I knew very little about here. It seemed rushed at the end for the current generation, Maria Shriver, Caroline Schlossberg, etc.

    Not as good as I expected

    I found this book to be very interesting, but felt it brushed over some more important aspects of the Kennedy women that married into the family. It did provide a lot of detail if you don't know much about them, but I felt a lot of it was very mundane. I have read many books on the kennedy's and this one had many parts that just didn't hold my interest. I find I know more about some of the Kennedy men after reading this as well.
