“A portrait of Kennedy that is thoroughly grounded in fact, free of partisan bias and believable.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Geoffrey Perret, in the first full-scale biography of John Kennedy in almost twenty years, sheds new light on the man’s mystique, his marriage and his all too brief presidency.”

“Perret captures the paradox at Kennedy’s core: He was an idealist and a visionary who couldn’t or wouldn’t control his most adolescent urges.”
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

“Full of revelations…[Perret] does a good job deflating the erroneous image of the Kennedys as Boston aristocracy…and he strikes a good balance between the personal and the political.”
Los Angeles Times
