"Along with Herbert Parmet and Robert Dallek, Michael O'Brien has written the most comprehensive biography of John F. Kennedy. Prodigiously researched and lucidly written, it supersedes Dallek in its understanding of Kennedy's medical problems. By providing new insights, O'Brien also adds to our understanding of Kennedy's private and public life."
- James N. Giglio, author of "The Presidency of John F. Kennedy"
"Professor Michael O'Brien has written a richly empathetic biography in which he faces square on the revisionist truths of the last decades and yet John F. Kennedy remains graced with the laurels of humanity."
- Laurence Leamer, bestselling author of "Sons of Camelot"
JOHN F. KENNEDY is an effort to create an absorbing balanced and distinguished biography of one of America's most legendary Presidents. While current fashion in Kennedy scholarship is to deride the man's achievements, this book describes Kennedy's strengths, explains his short-comings, and offers many new revelations. There are many specialized books on JFK's career, but no first-class modern biography that takes advantage of the huge volume of new material released from government archives and the JFK library. Nine years in the making, this is a balanced and judicious profile that goes beyond the clash of interpretations and offers a fresh, nuanced perspective.
