The authors seemed to have compiled every tidbit of gossip ever written, or for that matter thought about Jack & Jackie Kennedy...with a few facts/validated info thrown in for good measure...and placed it between a book cover. Amateurish writing combined with so-called "conversations" between characters and their "inner-most thoughts" places this book right up there with Confidential magazine of years past...though the latter-mentioned had fewer grammatical and typographical errors....With that being said - an easy & relaxing read for those who are interested in the White House as the setting for Caligula's reign.

This is a wretched book.  Unfortunately, there were no previous reviews to read and I took a chance.  Bad idea. This book is filled with nothing but sex and gossip.  I am already 200 pages in and sick of it all and can’t see finishing the book at this point as it really has nothing to say except expose and scandal.  I was hoping for a book with some history and context, but the writers are obsessed with nothing but detailing affairs and sexual trysts.  Everyone is lowered as a result and you cannot come away from this book without despising all involved – JKF, Jackie, and all down the line.  It is such a smear job as sex is the unrelenting theme - particularly homosexual sex which the writers make clear that everyone was involved with at some point (must be a personal preference).  Each new section begins with a discussion of repeated sordid events that have no uplifting ideas to offer. It’s a disgrace that such books are written and especially presented as literature for the reading public. What could the authors possibly be thinking by writing such inflammatory and unverifiable stories?  As the most recent reviewer noted, very little is sourced and must have been placed in the book for titillation or personal fulfillment.  I don’t like greedy or ambitious people like this. Stay away from this one.  The writers have made a long career on writing such trash as you can easily discover.

I have read many books and this one is particularly detailed. It mentions all the characters involved in her life, not just a phase of it.
