Let Every Nation Know is the first book of its kind-a historical biography in Kennedy's own words. Combining a remarkable audio CD of Kennedy's most famous speeches, debates and press conferences with the insights of two of America's preeminent historians, the result is a unique look at the world-changing words and presidency of John F. Kennedy.
Robert Dallek, author of the #1 bestselling biography An Unfinished Life, and Terry Golway, author of Washington's General, bring to life the soaring oratory, marvelous wit and the intense drama of Kennedy's words and the events they evoke.
"I had forgotten just how powerful these speeches were but the CD brings them to life once more and Dallek and Golway have done a masterful job of putting them into context."-Bob Schieffer, CBS News

This is a good book if you are a fan of JFK, a history major or teacher, and if you enjoy analyzing speeches given by Politicians. I liked that it came with a CD to actually listen to JFK give this speeches. To hear his tone and infliction as he said certain words makes those words take on a whole new meaning. Powerful and thought provoking at times. Said that this man's life was cut short. As a US History teacher I have used part of this book as a teaching tool during the unit on the 60's and JFK Presidency.
