Until his inspiring life was tragically cut short, John F. Kennedy commanded the world's attention—today, his legacy is still very much alive. This rich visual biography tells an unusual personal story by collecting rare memorabilia, everything from doodles and diary entries to drafts of major addresses. Hundreds of photographs and a compelling narrative by presidential scholar Chuck Wills uncover the remarkable tale of an intensely private man, from his rivalry with his older brother and his persistent courtship of Jackie to the inner workings of a historical presidency. Dozens of removable facsimiles and a 60-minute audio CD featuring some of Kennedy's most famous speeches, including hisinaugural address and his speech at the Berlin wall, capture an intimate look at one of the most revered figures in American history.
