    Although I enjoyed this book by Sally Bedell Smith which provided a behind the scenes look at Kennedy s time in the White House both from a political point of view and a personal one, you should note that only 41% of the Kindle version is the book the rest is made up of referenceing,etc However, that said I found the characters some of whom I had never heard of before to be so fascinating that I googled them after having read the book to find out about them I would definitely recommend this book.

    I have a number of books about the Kennedy Family both before and after the assassination.What interested me the most about this book was the background and stories of the insiders within the administration, but who often remained on the edge of Camelot to varying degrees.The jockeying for position, power, the friendships made, and destroyed make for a cracking read.

  3. Valerie Brogan Valerie Brogan says:

    The detail is almost overwhelming at times I appreciate that the author has done a great deal of research but the day to day life, of even these famous people, can pall after a time In spite of this, however, there are real insights into the decadent and disassociative life of Jackie and the morally ethical corruption of Jack and his cohorts.

  4. Angela Anderson Angela Anderson says:

    Brilliant read, very well written with lots of detail and information of the Kennedy administration and daily life in the White House A great insight into how Jackie coped with JFKs philandering, how they made their marriage work, also her sense of duty and respect she showed in the days following the shooting The politics of the time are well covered I would thoroughly recommend this book to any Kennedy fans.

    Incredibly detailed book Almost too detailed about the administration I was hoping it d be about their private world and relationship, as the title kinda implies.

    Seemed long to start with but then realised that the last 50% was taken up with reference sources A good read though and enjoyed it.
