Description

*A New York Times Bestseller* A major new biography of John F. Kennedy Jr. from a leading historian who was also a close friend, America's Reluctant Prince is a deeply researched, personal, surprising, and revealing portrait of the Kennedy heir the world lost too soon. Through the lens of their decades-long friendship and including exclusive interviews and details from previously classified documents, noted historian and New York Times bestselling author Steven M. Gillon examines John F. Kennedy Jr.'s life and legacy from before his birth to the day he died. Gillon covers the highs, the lows, and the surprising incidents, viewpoints, and relationships that John never discussed publicly, revealing the full story behind JFK Jr.'s complicated and rich life. In the end, Gillon proves that John's life was far more than another tragedy—rather, it's the true key to understanding both the Kennedy legacy and how America's first family continues to shape the world we live in today.

Professional reviews

"This entertaining audiobook gives listeners an insider's look at John F. Kennedy, Jr.--his personality and ambitions, and the people in his life. The author's knowledge of many familiar stories, such as John's salute at his father's funeral procession and his venture as an adult into the publishing business, adds depth to these aspects of Kennedy's life. Narrator Tim Pabon has a wealth of researched information to work with, all of it fascinating and appealing. He does a fine job building the narrative with his tone and rhythm. His interpretative and performance skills provide listeners with a revealing picture of Kennedy that will have them speculating on what could have been had he survived.
