This book has interesting details and insights on JFK that I found new and interesting. Having read many books on JFK, I was dubious about getting much new, but this book surprised me . The title is deceptive, since It is also a perceptive biography of the whole JFK. It treats Vietnam , Test ban treaty, Civil rights , Cuba, space, JFK's marriage,health, infidelity and family life in a detailed, insider way. Also very gossipy . Very well-researched , with page references to sources, and very balanced imo. Recommended.

There is much truth in this book, which many so-called authors and historians have overlooked [including Zinn, who really followed the revisionists, sad to say] so I must accord some respect to the author, but far superior to this latest book, are Donald Gibson's book, Battling Wall Street: The Kennedy Presidency and David Talbot's book, Brothers: The Hidden History of the Kennedy Years - - these two are highly recommended! I appreciate the author's mention that JFK indeed was planning to withdraw advisors from Vietnam; also JFK was about to fire Henry Cabot Lodge and Averell Harriman who were pursuing their own agenda in Vietnam [Wall Street's agenda].
