Joe McGinniss zeroes in on the personal and political career of Ted Kennedy. Nothing is sacred as McGinniss outlines the scandals and secrets of the entire Kennedy family. Smith recalls this political "history" clearly and smoothly, subtly imitating a Boston accent when reciting Kennedy speeches. No other characterization is present in this abridgment. The pace and order of the narrative are easy to follow once the story swings into full gear. The listener will wonder what was made up, omitted and abridged from the book. Hold on to your skepticism and the steering wheel while listening. M.B.K. (c)AudioFile, Portland, MaineFrom Publishers Weekly:
McGinniss's much bruited biography of the Massachusetts Senator.
