Description
"What was he like?" Jack Kennedy said that the reason people read biography is to answer that basic question. What was he like, this man whose own wife called him "that elusive, unforgettable man?" Television pundit and political journalist Chris Matthews answers that question with verve in this superb portrait of second son John F. Kennedy, who grew up in the shadow of his older brother, but whose character was truly founded by the histories he read in numerous sickbeds. "History made him, this lonely, sick boy. His mother never loved him," said Jacqueline Kennedy in the week after her husband's assassination. "History made Jack, this little boy reading history."

"If history at its best is about telling stories that bring the past to life, then Chris Matthews is a master storyteller, for this fascinating portrait brings Jack Kennedy more vividly to life than any recent work."—Doris Kearns Goodwin
