I am only halfway through this book on Mr.John F. Kennedy. I had always been interested in him as I was lucky enough to see him in person, having stood only about 2 yards away from his motor cavalcade as he passed through Dublin in June 1963. I remember thinking how suntanned and handsome he was, more so than his appearances on the television. He smiled at everyone on the sidewalk as we all waved our paper American flags. It was the most stupendous evening - the city was packed with people from all over the country, and probably from other countries as well. Five months later he was assasinated and the world mourned such a perfect man.

The book is very well laid out, stipulating all his activities for every day that he was president. He was such a remarkable man and did so much for the American people and brought hope and encouragement to the peoples of all countries during his time as president. He was aclaimed by every nation he visited. He managed to achieve such a lot in the short time that he was president.

The authors of the book are to be congratulated on such a fine presentation of his days as president. I haver not read a book to equal this one.

The Presidency of John F. Kennedy occurred at a fascinating time in world and American history. The growth of the Civil Rights Movement, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Cold War, the space race, the Bay of Pigs invasion, Vietnam and the spread of Communism in the world to list just a few, all of which are covered in this book.

To have a brief insight into every day of the Kennedy administration is a treat and a pleasure. This book covers his political and personal life and is brilliantly illustrated with photographs and presented in an easy to read style. It's the sort of book that you can open on any page and find something interesting.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone with an interest in the Kennedy legacy and the time period.
