With the upcoming 50th anniversary of JFK's death, I wanted to read something about him. I bought this book because it seemed to be different from the others, looking forward instead of backward. I'm very impressed by the way Reich was able to make the JFK story relevant, especially for young people. With all the nonsense going on in politics today, this book brilliantly demonstrates how we can look past our differences and improve our society. It's also a fast read; easy to digest and not too heavy. I'm already recommending this book to family and friends

This is an excellent read from start to finish. The author brilliantly captures the essence of JFK, his legacy, and the impact he had on the country. He explores why JFK’s call to his fellow citizens to get involved and provide service to others and to the country was crucial to the United States during the early 1960s and why that call matters more than ever today. This book provides great insight and offers interesting anecdotes into the significant events of JFK’s life before becoming President as well as the major issues he dealt with while in office. What distinguishes this book from other works written about JFK is that it is not just a historical recap of JFK’s life and his presidency, but also makes a compelling argument for why JFK’s ideas and vision on citizenship should resonate with the country today and how it would make a real difference. This book is a call to action for today’s generation by referencing the ideology of one of this nation’s greatest leaders. I have read many books both on this subject and the historical genre and this one truly stands out for me, both for its content as well as the context.
