Product Description

Review

"One of the best narrative treatments of the four days from assassination to funeral." "This is quite simply a book that will be read for centuries." -- Scott Turow, author of Presumed Innocent "What Bugliosi has done is a public service... the literary equivalent of World War I, a kind of trench warfare for the mind." "At last, someone has done it, put all the pieces together... With this work, Bugliosi has definitively explained the murder that recalibrated modern America." "By far the most accurate and detailed nongovernmental account [of] the assassination." -- Richard Mosk, member of the Warren Commission "There is no question that Bugliosi succeeds in scorching the conspiracy theory terrain with ferocious, even definitive, plausibility." "Few books are as gripping in their narrative, or as telling in their fine detail. This is a book that will make you weep." "What Bugliosi has done is reframe the narrative in such a compelling manner, in such an original writing voice, that he essentially shuts the conspiracy theorists down cold."

Regardless of whether your a conspiracy theorist or not, there is no doubt that this is a beautifully written book. The minute by minute accounts are breathtaking in parts and finally adds the detail that so many accounts have been missing. The arrival into Dallas, the scenes at Parkland, the death of Officer Tippet (who is sometimes regarded as a mere footnote in history) the interrogation of Oswald - everything is there. I loved this book and was do gripped by it that I could'nt out it down, though as times I had too - when Bugliosi describes the attempts to revive the stricken president or his wife's reaction to the whole event - in places its pretty heartbreaking. But all in all a good read - if you've never read anything about the Kennedy Assassination (which is going to marked quite notably this year I'd imagine seeing as this year - 2013 - is the 50th anniversary) then I'd say start with this. Its a gripping but clear and concise read.

I bought this book for my Husband following the TV documentary. It is a most unusual book in that it has no chapters, and goes into the most minute detail.
My Husband was fascinated and as it is a large book it took him days and days to read it.
A really good read.

Format: Paperback
When Vincent Bugliosi wrote Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy, published in May, 2007, the predecessor of the book being reviewed here, it was widely regarded as his magnum opus, a towering masterpiece which took twenty years and 1648 pages to write. In this new book about the assassination, Bugliosi has now winnowed the original manuscript to approximately 500 pages, eliminating nearly all the material used by the conspiracy theorists because he has essentially disproved the conspiracy idea.

Four Days in November, unlike Reclaiming History, is organized chronologically, giving dates and times, sometimes second by second, to make these real events come to life, and he includes seventy-nine photographs and drawings. The resulting achievement is stunning, an intensely readable and compelling work of scholarship which should eliminate, once and for all, the idea that there was more than one gunman. Photographs of the shooting, broken down into tiny fractions of a second, anatomical drawings of the wounds of President Kennedy and Governor Connolly, fingerprint evidence in the "sniper's nest" at the Book Depository, extensive photographs of the grassy knoll at the time of the shooting, and accounts from many eye-witnesses provide weighty, seemingly incontrovertible, evidence that Oswald was the lone shooter.

Bugliosi, who prosecuted Charles Manson in the Tate-LaBianca trial and then went on to write Helter Skelter: The True Story of the Manson Murders about that trial, is an accomplished writer who shares with the reader the kinds of details that he, as a prosecutor, counts as compelling evidence. At the same time, he is a painstaking recreator of scenes and observer of human nature.

By A. Murphy on 29 Dec. 2014

I bought this book after seeing a TV documentary about the assassination, and being impressed by Vincent Bugliosi's logical approach to the subject.
I was very impressed by how much detail he goes into in this book, an hour by hour, and sometimes minute by minute account of events, as the whole thing unfolds, facts that i had never heard of before, but were so important to nailing the truth.
This book kept me rivetted from begining to end, and i would recommend it to anyone who likes well written, non fiction books. If you are a conspiracy theorist, still buy it, you might learn something!

Format: Paperback
This is an amazing book of the terrible events in Dallas in november 1963. Virtually all facets and angles are dealt with minute scrupulous detail, for experts and the curious, this book is a rewarding read and very difficult to put down. clear your head of theories and stories, and immerse yourself into the events of that bright sunny winters day in Dallas.
The book brings along each character as they are needed in the sequence of events, the Aircraft, Vehicles, Firearms etc, all are clearly explained--in short This book is a brilliant documentary and is very highly recommended.

5 of 8 people found the following review helpful By D. Keller on 28 April 2010
Format: Paperback
Four Days in November sets out to put some "flesh" on the dry bones of the Warren Commission Report, and also attempts to make it more "believable" to people who still have reservations as to its explaination of the events in Dallas, by anticipating readers' questions and debunking silly conspiracy arguments. Just beware, remember that Bugliosi's background, however, is in the prosecution business and his book, extremely well written, and a much enjoyable read as it is, is just that: prosecutor's evidence, setting up to prove that Oswald's did it, on his own, etc. I found the Jack Ruby section, where Bugliosi is at pains to describe how his shooting of Oswald was the result of a "spur of the moment" decision very laborious and somehow unconvincing.
I see this book as the anti-thesis of Mark Lane's early book "Rush to Judgement" which set out to prove Oswald's innocence.
I don't think one will be more advanced on either view after reading Four Days in November, but it is recommended read in asmuch as Bugliosi knows how to keep the reader's attention.
