A vivid recreation of the moments before, during, and after president John F. Kennedy's assassination, based on original audio from ABC interwoven with commentary from Diane Sawyer and fresh interviews with the reporters, secret service agents, and medical personnel who were there. It's harrowing to hear the first breathless reports of the shooting, as well as the somber accounts from Kennedy's funeral, and the little details bring the terrible events back to life. Although the sound quality here is reliably excellent, there's a certain amount of repetition in the material that perhaps makes it best suited to JFK obsessives or those looking for thorough teaching tools.
This edition of Three Shots Rang Out: The JFK Assassination 50 Years Later is an audio-only ABC News special created exclusively for Audible and hosted by ABC World News Anchor Diane Sawyer. Sawyer takes listeners back to Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963, for a “you are there” exploration of the day of U.S. President John F. Kennedy’s assassination. Key moments include:
These real time audio reports, eyewitness recollections from 1963, and new analysis make for a powerful experience of this fateful day in recent history.

life is a book
Made me remember
it was factual mostly
Good to remember how this did damage the country
This was an excellent overview of the events leading up to and surrounding the assasination. It felt like I was transported to the time and could sense the depth of the tragedy.
I would- especially if they wanted to learn more about the JFK assassination.
The first person interviews.
I think the title is good the way it is now.
This is a great book, that captures the broadcast of jfk assaination. It show the caos and also hope. It also leaves room for thinking 'do we know all about what happened?'
Yes, this book costs nothing to download. But it does cost the time it takes to get through it. Unless you're a true history buff, or entirely hooked on the JFK shooting I doubt you'll want to dedicate that much time. I didn't.
very well presented and very well covered. a lot of historical information and it brought back a lot memories from that November day. thank you for a very factual accounting of that day in our history
Like books about successful leaders.
