5.0 out of 5 stars Moving and insightful. 29 Dec 2013
Format:Hardcover
This book gives a wonderful insight into the thoughts of JFK.

If you are a Kennedy fan this book will not let you down, it reflects his intellect and humour leaving you even more sad at his early demise. The selection of letters is excellent covering a broad range of society with the commentary and pictures making it accessible to all.

5.0 out of 5 stars A welcome focus on JFK's life and work 20 Mar 2014
By markr TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful book full of letters to and from John F Kennedy, including correspondence with Khrushchev, the Soviet premier, Martin Luther King, former presidents Truman and Eisenhower, along with school children and private citizens.

With an excellent commentary which gives the context for each letter clearly and succinctly, this book gives wonderful insight in the leadership style, humour and keen intelligence of JFK, and servers as a welcome focus on his life and work, rather than his untimely death.

Superb

5.0 out of 5 stars Christmas Present 28 Jan 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This was the ideal present for my husband and he is really enjoying reading the book. The layout of letters means you can pick it and read as much or as little as you want. It gives an insight into the thoughts of people at the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A unique opportunity to see into JFK's world 3 Jan 2014
By Sam T.
Format:Hardcover
The letters of John F. Kennedy provide a great insight into the world of JFK. The development of his thinking and his warm, funny personality are demonstrated in the words he wrote. His responses to letters demonstrate the pressing issues he faced. Illustrated with wonderful photographs and scans and transcripts of the original letters to and from Kennedy, this is truly a book for all JFK fans.
