Unnerving details about the Kennedy family and the one thousand days of the Kennedy administration. Some of the things we thought we knew, and many of the things we never had a clue about, are detailed in this book. The author has included many previously unpublished facts, gotten through the Freedom of Information act, and the results are shocking. A truly amazing book, it will keep you riveted until you finish it.

Meticulous investigation of Kennedy has revealed a wealth of indiscretions and malfeasance, ranging from frequent liaisons with prostitutes and mistresses to the attempted assassination of Fidel Castro to involvement in organized crime. Though scandals in the White House are nothing new, Hersh maintains that Kennedy's activities went beyond minor abuses of power and personal indulgences: they threatened the security of the nation--particularly in the realm of foreign policy--and the integrity of the office.

Does for the Kennedy clan what Kitty Kelley did for the Bushes (and it sounds like there may be some similarities in their obsessions with covering up inconvenient facts). Takes on the whole family, not just one member.

Disturbing....really gives the Kennedys a black eye. I don't know if this is all entirely true but it certainly is incriminating.

This books offer an enlightened perspective to the Kennedy political influence with the U.S. The author is very thorough with his investigation.

According to this, every rumor ever made about him was true, of course he says that without really saying that.
