Overview

Written by one of our foremost historians and published in 1965, A Thousand Days is still considered the most complete and definitive portrait of John F. Kennedy and his administration. Handpicked by Kennedy to serve as special assistant to the president, historian and Harvard professor Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr. witnessed firsthand the politics and personalities that influenced some of the most important and dramatic events in modern history.

The hundreds of photographs and documents included here have been gleaned from such sources as the John F. Kennedy Library, the Library of Congress, the Associated Press, Life magazine, and more. The photos capture private meetings with the president, the Bay of Pigs, the Civil Rights movement, and the Cuban Missile Crisis, as well as official White House memoranda, public speeches, social occasions, and private moments with the Kennedy family. These powerful images add a new dimension to the award-winning text and introduce a new generation to some of the most important and visually iconic moments in our recent past.

    Speak No Evil

    Mr. Schlesinger tells me a lot more than I need to know, in more pages of close print than the thousand days of the title, about President Kennedy's administration. Further, the JFK he portrays is not the JFK I knew as a Washington correspondent for a midwestern newspaper. Mr. Schlesinger saw his boss not only through rose-colored glasses, but with the narrowly focused vision of an adoring employee. All of this in a prose style so turgid that I had great difficulty staying awake for even an hour's reading.

    PULITZER PRIZE winning account of the Kennedy White House, DO NOT be turned off by the length!

    Mr. Schleisinger has caputured the essence of the Kennedy White House with his strict attention to detail and moment by moment accounts of events that transpired during the time: Bay of Pigs, Cuban Missile Crisis. The book is an excellent piece of work and is the best Kennedy as a President piece ever written second to Richard Reeve's 'President Kennedy: Profile of Power.'

    Excellent choice Reading of Kennedy Years

    Author Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr, wrote his memoir in a way that is not only readable but enjoyable. I especially liked how he wrote not from History books but as a witness of events as they occur. I highly recommend this reading for it gives us much the same of what is happening now in the United States. It makes me happy that he "did not wait his turn," to be President of the United States.

    Outdated

    Schlesinger writes about Kennedy like a teenage girl with a crush. To Arthur Lincoln and FDR pale by comparison to Kennedy. Unxiously obsequious.

    A curious style

    And constantly hints at situations and events and personal health without actually making a statement more like a fan magazine than a serious bio.
