Audible Editor Reviews

"Next to President Kennedy and perhaps his brother, Robert, Ted Sorenson was probably the most important individual in the country [during the Kennedy administration]." So intones analyst and professor Ralph Buultjens in his introduction of Ted Sorenson, JFK’s special counsel, advisor, and longtime speechwriter. Indeed, students of Kennedy history point to Sorenson as the great behind-the-scenes figure of the time.

In this edition of Live from the 92nd Street Y, recorded in 2008, two years before Sorenson’s passing, Professor Buultjens and Sorenson discuss the civil rights movement, the space race, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and his famous, fallen boss.
