From the Back Cover:

"A kind of hot history of a glamorous time...an impressionist portrait of a highly endowed, complex man who became a hero for our time because he met our hunger for politics, royalty, sex, and dangerous living." The Los Angeles Times

"The Kennedy saga as people magazine might tell it...

It is engorged with gossip, spiced with sex, and utterly obsessed with personality...fascinating to read...vivid images...leap from every page." The Miami Herald

"Fascinating.

It's not a history book. It's a book of gossipy stories and delicious detail." Chicago Tribune

"As much about Jackie Kennedy as Jack...

About their charisma...about what they represented...The most surprising revelation is the odd, almost preternatural obsession with death that Kennedy developed right before Dallas." The Pittsburgh Press

"Revealing, Sympathetic, Shocking."

The Boston Globe
