Description

The critically acclaimed, "New York Times "bestselling new biography of John F. Kennedy, by Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC's "Hardball."

Chris Matthews, who has been following and studying the Kennedys most of his life, has interviewed President Kennedy's closest confidants--family, friends, and those who served with him--to create a moving portrait of a man many loved but few really understood. Matthews evokes JFK's days at prep school, his heroism during World War II, his political career, and, always, his devotion to the Kennedy family.

Jack Kennedy took surprising risks, struggled with chronic illness, and repeatedly confronted "the thin membrane between life and death." As Matthews describes it, Jack Kennedy was a rebel, an adventurer, and a great enjoyer of life precisely because he understood its fragility.

By getting closer to the man than any book before has, Chris Matthews's "Jack Kennedy" will be a touchstone for those who wish to remember his heroism and his inspiration now and for years to come.
