In the full glow of JFK's Camelot, who among us would have guessed that the Kennedy who would leave the deepest imprint upon our country would be Edward, the youngest of the Kennedy clan? When his brother John was assassinated in 1963, Ted was the junior U.S. Senator from Massachusetts; when he died in August, 46 years later, he still held that seat. In the interim, there had been tragedies (his brother Robert's assassination), scandals (Chappaquiddick), setbacks (losing his Senate Majority Whip position in 1969), and a host of legislative victories and accomplishments. In the True Compass, completed before his death, he describes not only long Washington career and his relationship with several presidents; but also his private life, including his marriages. The closest possible view of the Kennedy; a Barnes & Noble Bestseller now in paperback and a NOOK Edition.
