Combining powerful dramatic narrative with impeccably researched detail, The Kennedy Men illuminates their aspirations and love of family, their accomplishments and failures, their heroism and frailty, their loves and passions, and their patriotism and selfishness. Filled with startling revelations, it is a spellbinding personal history of individuals and a journey of character through time.
Audio includes excerpts from President Kennedy's secret White House recordings of phone conversations and private meetings.
"Fast-paced....High heroic narrative....Leamer is well versed in the vast literature on the Kennedys." (Washington Post)
Interesting look at three of the Kennedy men, with only small glimpses of Bobby and nothing of Teddy. Very disjointed in its organization and not in much depth about anything. Good starting point if you knew nothing of the Kennedys, but totally unsatisfying if real information is what you seek.
This is not one of the most interesting books at all about the Kennedy Family. The narrator is horrible. Has a hum drum voice that is a boring listen.
As the previous reviewer states, the content is interesting but this narrator is terrible. His slurring and mispronunciation of words is difficult to ignore and makes this an annoying read.
Interesting insight into the Kennedy mystique. However, the narrator needs the 12 step system.
