JFK's Last Hundred Days: The Transformation of a Man and the Emergence of a Great President by Thurston Clarke

A revelatory, minute-by-minute account of JFK’s final days that asks what might have been

Fifty years after his assassination, President John F. Kennedy’s legend endures. Noted author and historian Thurston Clarke reexamines the last months of the president’s life to show a man in the midst of great change, both in his family and in the key issues of his day: the cold war, civil rights, and Vietnam, finally on the cusp of making good on his extraordinary promise. JFK’s Last Hundred Days presents a gripping account that weaves together Kennedy’s public and private lives, explains why the grief following his assassination has endured so long, and solves the most tantalizing Kennedy mystery of them all—not who killed him but who he was when he was killed and where he would have led us.

JFK's Last Hundred Days is an eye opening book. It starts with the death of his baby and the changes that made in his character - inspiring him to try harder as a father, husband, and leader. Thurston Clarke provides incredible insight into the last days of one of our country's most influential leaders. A darn good book!

Thurston Clarke shows great writing and research skills in his new book JFK's Last Hundred Days. I have read several books on the life of John F. Kennedy, but this one really stands out. It focuses, as the title suggests, on a very specific time frame and in doing so really shows a clear image of a leader with real world struggles, pains, and triumphs.

A mishmash of styles. One time he is strapped in back brace next running about in touch football. Says how close yet never says how many days were actually in same place or who was with the children. Said due for c section but had it.? Had one before? Odd insisting of love when it looks like just wanted her to campaign disappointing
