Book by Ted SorensenTheodore C Sorensen

Críticas:

"This is an important book, and it's also a poignant one. As Jackie Kennedy once said of a speech that Ted Sorensen gave about her husband, it captures not only the soul of John Kennedy but also the soul of Sorensen. This clear-eyed but loving memoir is fascinating."--Walter Isaacson

"With eloquence and honesty, Sorensen takes us on a tour of many of the most important moments of the second half of the American Century, from who wrote 'Profiles in Courage' to the Cuban Missile Crisis to Dallas and its terrible aftermath. This is an illuminating and engaging book."--Jon Meacham

"Ted Sorensen's Counselor is that rare gift to history: an account of mighty events by a participant who stood at their heart, and a writer masterful enough to make us understand them as well."--Robert Caro

"Ted Sorensen has given us a very welcome up close and personal view of life and politics at the side of John F. Kennedy. There are fresh insights and enduring lessons for this and future generations to study and embrace. And painful memories of what we lost."--Tom Brokaw

"Ted Sorensen's words inspired a generation, and his counsel and judgment helped steer our nation through some of its most difficult hours. This gripping, candid memoir illuminates a revered era in American history. Sorensen has written a book that will be cherished for generations."--Barack Obama
