an abridged version doe snto really make sense to discover the life of JFK. We hear so much about is health, but little about his US policies.
Good for those just wishing to discover the man quickly.
What an amazing life. What an amazing person. The detail of JFk's life will educate, and inspire you. Learn not well publised facts about his youth, his sickness and disabilities. How he approached the negotiating table with russian leaders. Off coarse the insight to the missle crisis and much, much more.
I had selected this book hoping to learn more about JFK the person, not get a history lesson about civil rights, the Cuban missile crisis, back-channel letters between the US/JFK and Kruschev and secretly installed microphones taping Kennedy's talks with his advisors. Definitely not something that holds your attention for long periods of time.
