A Day In The Life Of President Kennedy Author:Jim Bishop As only Jim Bishop could write it, this is an hour-by-hour record of a typical day in the White House. It is well, a revealing and enlightening look at John F. Kennedy in his many roles: chief executive, international statesman, politician, intellectual, and, of corse, husband and father. — A DAY IN THE LIFE OF PRESIDENT KENNEDY tells how each ho... more »ur of a particular day was spent by president, mrs kennedy, the children, and the office and domestic White House staff. The day begins at 7:00 a.m.. shortly before the President arises, and ends with his retirement at midnight. this unique book follows him from high-level meetings to a late-afternoon swim with Caroline and John-John; from a presss conference to a visit with his eye doctor; from a session on world events with his close advisors to a quiet dinner with his wife.
" To my eternal sorrow," writes Jim Bishop. " I was the last writer to work with President Kennedy on an exclusive story. Therefore, I asked to have it published as it was written, without anything added or changed, when the world was bright for him and the future held the warm promise of goodness and victory."What you will read in this book is a portrait of the Kennedy family as it looked then-with no premonition that, for him, time had run out."« less
