    A Meaningful Epic

    I purchased this book when I was 18 years and read it in a few months. The biography is enormous and answers every possible question you may have concerning the life of RFK. The number 1 book for anyone interested in RFK's life. Told by someone who personally knew him, it is both realistic and never a 'tell all'. Throughout my college career, I would often pick it up and read through any particular chapter. Since it is about someone's life you do not have to read it in any particular order. It was a fantastic read.

    Excellent Read!

    Even if you're not interested in the Kennedy's, you'll be interested in this book! Schlesinger does a great job describing not only RFK, but America, our culture, and the world of the 50's & 60's. Fascinating!
