There has been no complete biography like this one. Jack deals with the full scope of Kennedy's life - his family, his friends, his infidelities. There's much to say, much culled from hundreds of hours of tapes from the Oval Office. Through painstaking research, Geoffrey Perret located thousands of revealing documents on national security issues and foreign affairs, subjects to which Kennedy devoted most of his time and energy.

All of the documents from the Assassination Records Review Board are now available as well, and Perret has mined the Kennedy Library in a way few others have, finding letters and diaries that have never before seen the light of day.

But perhaps most important here is the narrative ability of Perret. With style and substance, he brings to life again the man who left such an indelible impression on our century. Download and start listening now!


Listener Opinions

    " An entertaining read, especially if you like a mix of history and biography. The author kind of glosses over some details or issues surrounding JFK and the book's conclusion is a little truncated, but it is a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patty | 3/25/2012

    " Fantastic book - complete research, amazing citations, grounded in fact and impossible to put down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ana Mckee | 3/7/2012

    " Insight into who Jack Kennedy was beyond the public persona. Validated the stories about his sexual escapades and revealed his extremely poor health. Still a favorite icon for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrick | 8/30/2011

    " A fantastic read that is both compelling and revealing of a man that did much to shape the course of history in this century. Through well written prose and insightful revealing of JFK's personal life we learn about the man as a whole; his greatest qualities, and his worst. "

    " This is an engaging biography about JFK. I don't know enough to "fact check" this book, but it is well written and presents an interesting take on JFK's life. I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading biographies that have a little flare. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shaka Mitchell | 2/28/2011

    " If you have an affinity towards JFK you'll like this book. It is a lighter read than "The Kennedy Men" but still gives a good look into his life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wlarue | 1/14/2011

    " A broad brush of a biography that does a nice job of summarizing the highs and lows of Kennedy's life, from his courage in war to his marital troubles to the mixed record as president. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 4/25/2010

    " Biography of JFK based on & taped conversationsa & personal diaries. "

    " Of all the Kennedy bio's I've read, this ranks as one of the better ones. "
