Jacqueline Lee Bouvier Kennedy Onassis-better known as Jackie O. to the tabloids, "the deb" to the Kennedy clan, and the 35th First Lady to historians-is easily one of the most recognizable Presidential wives. She remains the model of the proper American woman. But what was Jackie O. hiding behind those big, dark shades?

From her New York society upbringing to her time in the White House to her days spent as a Doubleday editor, this is the ultimate biography of a woman everyone recognized but few knew. Did you know that:

  • Her first job was as the "Inquiring Camera Girl" for the Washington Times-Herald?
  • Before she started dating Jack Kennedy, she hadn't even voted in a national election?
  • She was the only family member strong enough to remove Robert Kennedy from life-support measures after he was shot?
  • She asked Rose Kennedy for her blessing before she married Aristotle Onassis?
She was American royalty and is now an American icon. The Everything Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Book delivers everything you always wanted to know about this captivating woman.
