Extremely well written, researched, documented and presented.
I recommend to all who want to know more about this tragic event in our nation's history!
Look I get it... when on a news show that barking delivery is effective. But it's. It great when you are reading a book.
Please hire Scott Brick or anyone but Bill O'Reilly really. I can't listen to him yell at me for 8 hours. Which is a complete shame, because otherwise the books are lovely.
Even though the majority of the world has heard most of Kennedy's story O'Reilly's book is chalked full of many details I have never heard before. I appreciate the attention to detail he put into the book however I did find O'Reilly's narration to be a bit monotone and sometimes hard to concentrate. Overall, the book was very interesting and I found it a good read.
Dugard and O'Reilly reveal their ignorance of military matters when they make JFK a Second Lieutenant (2LT) in PT109. 2LT is an Army, Air Force and Marine Corps rank; not a Navy rank. JFK was a Navy Lieutenant Junior Grade (LTjg) at the time; one pay grade higher than a 2LT in the other services.
They also reveal their ignorance concerning weapons in several places. One example of this is that the ammunition used by Oswald's rifle is an unusual caliber and would have been hard to find so pocketing the spent shell casings for later reloading would simply be economical, not unusual.
Finally, I have always admired historians for documenting facts and identifying sources; not for presenting conjecture of intimate details as fact with no citation of sources.
This book should be catalogs as an historical novel.
