Publisher's Summary

Explore the Lives and Relationship of John and Jackie

Two captivating manuscripts in one book: 

  • John F. Kennedy: A Captivating Guide to the Life of JFK
  • Jackie Kennedy: A Captivating Guide to the Life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

Explore the Fascinating Life of John F. Kennedy

Gallup's List of Widely Admired People of the 20th Century places President John F. Kennedy in the third slot, behind Martin Luther King, Jr., and Mother Teresa. Needless to say, President Kennedy's name is one that will not soon be forgotten. Many people will simply recall him as the handsome president who reigned for a short while before his unfortunate death at the hands of an assassin in Dallas, Texas. They may recall he was the youngest president to have been sworn into the presidential office or he dealt with issues such as the Cuban Missile Crisis. The general American public and the world know much about the surface of JFK's life - they know of his affairs and his ill health - but they often do not recall anything about who he was as a person or how he interacted with his wife and family. This book aims to unveil all this information along with many more captivating facts about the life of John F. Kennedy. 

Explore the Fascinating Life of Jackie Kennedy

Without a doubt, the name Jackie Kennedy draws multiple thoughts to mind; she is, perhaps, most well-known in her service as the first lady of the United States, as her husband, John F. Kennedy, took office as the president, and her role in restoring the White House. 

Listen to this audiobook now to learn more about life of John F. Kennedy and Jackie Kennedy!

Nice quick book

Nice quick book to listen, albeit somewhat anemic. Recommend the series for younger readers who aren't into history, or anyone needing a quick brush up on some of history's highlights.

John F. Kennedy: This is a concise and well-written history. It's a short but, as promised, and perfect for anyone looking for a no-frills, at-a-glance biography of JFK's life -- his childhood, military career, and political influences.

Informative Book

There were a couple of things cited a fact that I feel are questionable and so far as I know, the true facts are not yet known to the general public, one of those being that Lee Harvey Oswald shot J.D. Tibbets. This is unproven.

Fabulous

Any additional comments?

I am a Kennedy fan and this book is overly reverential, but I still love it. This is good author and this is nice intimate look at JFK. If you don’t like JFK or the period - you probably won’t like this. Otherwise - it is at the top of the list for fans of JFK.

A good solid story by an author who knew the President for a very long time. I found the book to be what one expects of a book written by a friend...that is a book full of glowing praise and nothing negative.

Well-Written

Any additional comments?

This author probably knew about JFK as well as any of the people in his Washington days. As his primary speech writer he had special insights that few others had. His sense of history is perfect for this project. I have listened to it just about all of the books in print about JFK and I believe this is one of the finest.
