  • This was a really good book I ve always wanted to know about the Kennedy family, especially since I grew up hearing about them considering I m from MA Not only that, but I ll have friends or families gushing over the younger Kennedys, saying they went on a date or something The air of eliteness surrounds them, so it was refreshing reading this book I ve always heard about the Kennedy curse, but didn t know the details about different things that went on in the family s lives It was surreal, as [...]


  • i wasn t too crazy about this book, mainly because of the way it was set up because i am not too familiar with the kennedy sons, it was hard for me to follow the stories of each and there are MANY pretty much each chapter focused on one of the sons, but in an erratic way one chapter for tim, then 2 for john, then 1 for michael, then back to tim for 2 chapters, etc it was all very confusingever, i did like the particular focus on jfk jr who i was interested in learning about also liked how the a [...]


  • My romantic love affair with the Kennedys ended when I read back in the early 2000s that Bobby Jr was defending his clearly guilty cousin Michael Skakel and demonizing Dommonick Dunne, who I ve always admired for his commitment to make sure justice is done no matter how rich, famous, and powerful the accused is It bothered me tremendously that he would defend a murderer, and one who murdered a young girl, no less, just because he is a member of his family Maybe because he is the namesake of his [...]


  • I have found books on the Kennedy s endlessly fascinating More had probably been written on them then any other American family Laurence Leamer s lengthy tome on the fate of the son s of patriarch Joseph P Kennedy is no less entertaining and a balanced and fair look into to lives of these men The Kennedy dynasty and its generations is based on the will of that patriarch along with the mythology and media worship that has kept it clearly in the spotlight for so many years Joe, who created the for [...]


  • the information presented was interesting but the narrative jumped from one person to another in a very confusing manner esp with the numerous same and similar names You needed to stop go back and figure out which one of the numerous Kennedys he was talking about now


  • I didn t finish the book partly because I wasn t sufficiently interested in the subject matter and partly because I found the construction very disjointed Perhaps had I been interested, I would have ploughed through.


  • The biographies of the sons and grandsons of Joseph P Kennedy Not very good at all I wound up skimming a lot of it Not entertaining Skipped around among all the Kennedy cousins Photos focused on John F Kennedy Jr.


  • Very good information on Kennedy Family Interested in JFK s kids, the Curse This is the perfect book for you Long however, and takes a while to finish Good read, but important to have prior knowledge on some political events in 60 s 70 s Helps with the comprehension.


  • I enjoyed this read It seemed honest without being gossipy I did get a bit tired of hearing so much about Ted Kennedy.


  • I have read several books both by and about the Kennedys Laurence Leamer has always been able to give a balanced portrayal without whitewashing scandals or polishing the virtues.


  • I have always been a Kennedy buff Leamer s book is a refreshing look at the younger generation of Kennedy s their strengths, foibles, failures, successes, lives, and deaths.




  • Very readable bookthis book really told the whole story about all the Kennedy men in a most readable and interesting way I enjoyed reading this book very much


  • Tragedies in the familyExcellent book on the trials and tribulations of the Kennedy family The book is very well done and shows the good and bad of the family.Good read
