Product Description

Review

A perfectly-timed, personal, funny and fascinating look back on the mid-90's publishing world. I read it in one sitting.--Julie Klausner, Comedian

About the Author

Since the 1990s, creative director Matt Berman has been collaborating with some of the most influential photographers in fashion and art to create some of the industry's most enduring imagery in print. In 1995, Matt was hired by JFK Jr. to serve as the creative director of "George" magazine. He wor-ked side-by-side with John until his death in 1999 to craft his boss's unique vision for a new kind of magazine. Matt then moved to Paris and continued to serve as creative director on several French magazine titles and advertising campaigns. Presently, Matt is a creative director living in Los Angeles.

HASH(0x9993ed5c) out of 5 stars Better Than Most 25 May 2014
By Amanda Heath - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have read many books on the Kennedys and JFK Jr. specifically. This is the only one that made me see him as a normal individual. I loved the stories of the ribbing and practical jokes JFK Jr dished out to Matt Berman and others. It is very rare that you read anything deragatory about JFK Jr. and he seemed to be honestly loved by all who really knew him. I also was glad to read that Carolyn was also a lovely person. She is so often depicted as an ice princess and did come across that way in many photos. It appears that she also was loved by all who really knew her. I would have liked to read more about her sister Lauren and how she interacted with JFK Jr.

JFK Jr seemed to be an old soul and taught life lessons to his friends in how to interact with people. He had a wonderful life that was cut way too short. This book brings out the human side of JFK Jr. rather than put him on a pedestal.

The book is also about Matt Berman, his life, and how he got to his position at the magazine George. I enjoyed the parts about how they decided on their covers for the magazine and how they went about photographing them. My only criticism about the book is that it was just too short. It left me wanting to know more and read more about this fasinating man and the people who worked and interacted with him.

HASH(0x99ac5d50) out of 5 stars Excellent book! 24 May 2014
By Author Sk Llc Koones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a very touching and interesting book about JFK Jr. and his time at George Magazine. Berman offers great insight into the person he was, rather than the image many of us have of John, the icon. Both John and Matt are very interesting people and this book shines a light on both. I highly recommend this book.

HASH(0x99ac5c54) out of 5 stars Fascinating story on how George was put together. 20 Jun. 2014
By A reader from Philadelphia. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
An honest tale of how a decent and talented guy brushed shoulders with stardom. And how he had to compromise his standards because JFK, Jr. wanted a serif on a san serif type face. Berman's fascinating account of how he put together an outstanding magazine is told with honesty and humility--which is refreshing for someone in his field. Berman brings JFK back to life, and tells the life lessons his boss taught him. It's such a good read that you don't want it to end-- because we know how it tragically ends. John F. Kennedy, Jr. was portrayed as American royalty by the press. But we see that he wanted to be treated as a regular guy.

HASH(0x9a4d3c3c) out of 5 stars Attention all former subscribers of "George"-you will like this! 14 Oct. 2014
By E. Mac Texan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As a once subscriber of George Magazine, I loved reading about the trials and tribulations of getting it off the ground. Matt Berman did a fine job of making this reader feel like "I was there too". I loved his analogy of the parallels in his life and JKF, Jr. Almost everything I have ever read about JFK, Jr. is positive. His friends seem very loyal, and after reading this book I can see why. We all like to have a friend who brings out the best in us, and everybody, as Berman claims JFK, Jr. did. My first thoughts on reading this was the sheer amount of money that must have been spent for all those celebrity covers. The financial problems of the magazine were only alluded to, but never expounded on. As a subscriber, the best thing about "George" was all the celebrity invterviews. I enjoyed reading all the accounts of shooting some of the most popular covers with well known celebs like Demi Moore, etc. It was obvious JFK, Jr. could land any interview due to his own celebrity. Although Kennedy's excellent people skills seemed numerous, his lack of judgement on other matters was never mentioned. All in all, this is well worth reading for its insight into many people, including Berman.
