Product Description

Product Description

If George magazine was about “not just politics as usual,” a day at the office with John F. Kennedy Jr. was not just business as usual. John handpicked Creative Director Matt Berman to bring his vision for a new political magazine to life. Through marathon nights leading up to George’s launch; extraordinary meetings with celebrities including Barbra Streisand, Robert De Niro, and Demi Moore; and jokes at each other’s expense, Matt developed a wonderfully collaborative and fun-loving relationship with America’s favorite son.

They were an unlikely team: the poised, charismatic scion of a beloved political family and the shy, self-deprecating, artistic kid. Yet they became close friends and confidants. In this warm, funny, and intimate book, Matt remembers his brilliant friend and colleague—John’s approach to work, life, and fame, and most of all, his ease and grace, which charmed those around him.

More than any book before it, JFK Jr., George, & Me reveals the friendly, witty, down-to-earth guy the paparazzi could never capture. Matt opens the doors of John’s messy office to share previously untold stories, personal notes, and never-before-seen photos from the trenches of a startup magazine that was the brainchild of a superstar. John helped Matt navigate a world filled with celebrities, artists, beauty, style, competition, and stunningly tender egos. In turn, Matt shares the invaluable lessons about business and life that he learned from John. What emerges is a portrait of JFK Jr. as a true friend and mentor.

4.0 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.

5.0 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.

5.0 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.
