Five star across the board. This was a terrible loss not only to his family but to our country also. I found the book to be very informative but on a personal side when I first read it back in high school, now that more details and ifnformation have come to light, I would like to locate/purchase a copy so that I can read it again.

The is one of the best books ever written concerning the Kennedy assasination. Every detail concerning the death of the 35th President is examined. The book is long, however, it is not a difficult read. I highly recommend it.

Mr. Manchester presents an all-encompassing, freshly historical review of President Kennedy's last six days. His reseach is exhaustive, his telling engrossing to the reader.

Manchester obviously did painstaking research but erred in putting all of it into his final work. The trivia is both miniscule, never ending and slows the reading to an unbearable crawl. I finally quit reading it in disgust.

Over 2,000 books have been written about the Kennedy assassination. Unfortunately, most deal with a variety of conspiracy theories. It must be noted that this book was commissioned on February 5, 1964, while information was still fresh in the minds of eyewitnesses and major players. Mr. Manchester explains the events of those seminal six days in American History in great detail. If you wish to believe that there was, in fact, a conspiracy, I would suggest that you read this book first and then read the multitude of conspiracy 'novels'. Excellently written and even with 700+ pages, it is a quick read and makes one feel they are there.
