There has been no complete biography like this one. Jack deals with the full scope of Kennedy's life - his family, his friends, his infidelities. There's much to say, much culled from hundreds of hours of tapes from the Oval Office. Through painstaking research, Geoffrey Perret located thousands of revealing documents on national security issues and foreign affairs, subjects to which Kennedy devoted most of his time and energy. All of the documents from the Assassination Records Review Board are now available as well, and Perret has mined the Kennedy Library in a way few others have, finding letters and diaries that have never before seen the light of day. But perhaps most important here is the narrative ability of Perret. With style and substance, he brings to life again the man who left such an indelible impression on our century.

"Dick Hill reads the latest biography of John F. Kennedy with the skill and finesse expected of his work. Kennedy comes to light with great dignity and warmth in Hill's interpretation--both the exceptional idealism that was his hallmark, as well as the less savory aspects of his personal life. The listener moves quickly through his personal life, military service, campaigns, and short presidency, but Hill keeps the pace even as the information flows. Rather than attempting Kennedy's thick Boston accent, Hill reads quotes in a slightly altered voice to set them apart from the rest of the text. The combination of a very well-written biography and Hill's narration makes this biography a must-listen. H.L.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
