I have always been interested and inspired by the Kennedy family. I was so looking forward to this memoir that I started reading it the day it came out and am now finished. This autobiography is a splendid read. The family stories are truly fascinating, and he wasn't afraid to reveal his own tragic errors. This would be a great book for an adolescent, as it really shows how a young person can overcome problems and succeed. Ted Kennedy lived through so much tragedy and heartbreak. It is how he reacted and endured through these tough times that shows his true character. Those who disagreed with his political positions will likely trash this book. This book is not for them: it's for those who want to know a little bit more about the Kennedys, and a lot more about their youngest son. I'm already knee deep in another book that I recommend wholeheartedly--EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE 2.0--I'm learning so much from it!

Whitewash

This man spent a lifetime in pursuit of the most extreme liberal causes and did much to destroy our Republic. This book is a whitewash of this Radical, Socialist icon. Don't waste your money

    Inside Info?

    For such access to an unbelievable amount of history, I was dissapointed with what was offered on many of the defining moments of our time that Senator Kennedy was upfront and center for. Despite feeling bad saying that about a deceased man whom I've always had a lot of respect for.

    Preseident Kennedy and Robert Kennedy's Assassination's, MLK's assassanation, Chapaquidak (sorry on spelling), Presidential Runs, etc. All of the accounts of these events offered very little information that was not already considered common knowledge. JFK's assassanation may have been the defining moment / turning point of our country and it barely got ten pages in this lenghty book.

    I was expecting much more and was left wanting more insight from someone who, sadly, cannot offer anymore.
