In this groundbreaking book, award-winning investigative journalist Seymour M. Hersh shows us a John F. Kennedy we have never seen before, a man insulated from the normal consequences of behavior long before he entered the White House. His father, Joe, set the pattern with an arrogance and cunning that have never been fully appreciated: Kennedys could do exactly what they wanted, and could evade any charge brought against them. Kennedys wrote their own moral code.

This book wasn't nearly as interesting as I expected it to be. It seemed really repetitive at times. It doesn't paint President Kennedy in a good light and I have lost a little respect for him. Some things are better left not knowing. Read full review

Muddled, muddled! Hearsay, gossip and badly written too. Best thing about it is the title. Read full review
