Traditionally, Robert F. Kennedy has been viewed as either the Good Bobby, who saw wrong and tried to right it, or the Bad Bobby of countless conspiracy theories. Evan Thomas' achievement is to realize RFK as a human being, to bring to life an extraordinarily complex man who was at once kind and cruel, devious and honest, fearful and brave. The portrait that emerges is unvarnished but sympathetic, packed with new details about Kennedy's early life and his behind-the-scenes machinations. In a clear and fast-paced narrative, Thomas cuts through the mythology to reveal a character who, though he died young and just as he was reaching for ultimate power, remains one of the century's most fascinating men.

    " Thoughtful. Thorough. Balanced. Fascinating! If you are planning to read a biography of RFK, I recommend this one. "

    " How great a politician I would be if only afforded the silver Kennedy Spoon! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Janet | 2/12/2014

    " Extremely well written book about the life of RFK, a politician who had a great effect upon my political leanings, as I was 13 years old and was so energized and excited about his campaign when he was shot. This author really helped me understand his upbringing, motivations and the incredible pain he experineced when his brother was assasinated. He went through a tremendous spiritual awakening before running for President himself. This is an excellent book. "

    " For the most part I really enjoyed this book on Robert Kennedy. I'm fascinated by the Kennedy years and this was the first book I have read that focused on RFK, a man who I think might be even more interesting of a person than his more famous older brother Jack. The only thing that was a bit strange about this book was that there was so little about the JFK assassination but that's likely because so much has already been written about the book and because the focus was RFK, not JFK.
