    In this historic memoir, the late Ted Kennedy takes us inside his family, re-creating life with his parents and brothers and explaining their profound impact on him. For the first time, he describes his heartbreak and years of struggle in the wake of their deaths. Through it all, he describes his work in the Senate on the major issues of our time - civil rights, Vietnam, Watergate, the quest for peace in Northern Ireland - and the cause of his life: improved health care for all Americans

    "A wonderful book about a life full of wonders..."
    Overall

    A wonderful book about a life full of the wonders of our history; a life that was fully dedicated to the most wonderful country God could imagine. I had the privilege of working with him and Ted Jr. as we sought to secure equal access to the American dream or all Americans. Then and now and always, I will count him amongst the greatest of America's sons.

  • How Is It Possible to Believe in God?: A 'This I Believe' Essay

    This essay comes from the NPR series This I Believe, which features brief personal reflections from both famous and unknown Americans. The pieces that make up the series compel listeners to rethink not only what and how they have arrived at their beliefs, but also the extent to which they share them with others.

    Cletus van Damme says: "Brief and Unsatisfying"
    "Very much with us..."
    Overall

    We've all heard it said that "so and so" is still with us. Never has this been closer to objective truth than now as we reflect upon and react to his thoughts, words and values. With the exception of being differently filling than a mutton chop, Bill remains at our side as we continue in our efforts to memorize Funk, Wagnalls, Merriam, etc., etc.

  • A Morning for Flamingoes: A Dave Robicheaux Novel

    Dave Robicheaux felt the bone-grinding pain rip through his body as the .45 did its damage. Through the agonizing haze that enveloped him, he heard an almost inhuman laugh - the hideous, victorious cackling of Jimmie Lee Boggs - a sound he would never forget. It had started out as an ordinary prisoner transfer, then turned into a blood bath when the convicted murderer got hold of a gun.

    Ed says: "Burke is an outstanding novelist"
    "5 Stars for Burke & Hammer"
    Overall

    A feast with all the fixin's! There's much to like about this book and its presentation. One thing I must single out though: why I read reviews, other than my own, is a mystery; at tiimes when I do I feel like one of those folks back in the teens that would pack a picnic and take the carriage out on Sundays to watch the inmates at the local asylum. Anyway, in some of these things I've read knocks on Mr. Hammer in response to which I must say: you flat don't get it! This is the real deal. If anything, Mr. Burke ought to build an extra room on his house...he's an asset, no doubt about it! He's got it down, cher!
