A fabulous read, but with no new content.,

This review is from: America's Queen: The Life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis (Hardcover)
For Jacqueline Lee Bouvier Kennedy Onassis, this volumptuous book covers no more than previous biographies...however, it does make for a read that still captures the famed Camelot era and beyond. The woman herself, has been a constant mystery in reality, with conflicting opinions from family, friends and "snubbed" friends alike...whatever the final synopsis of this woman may be, one can never doubt she held herself with utmost poise and glamour, with a shrewd perception of the public opinion.
Compared to the detailed writing on Jacqeline's early years, the lack of writing about Jacqueline in her final years is disappointing, however...in the end she guarded her family and personal life to strive for an existence outside of the public arena and in some ways, this book has respected her for that. Combined sympathetic and matter of fact writing, complimented by numerous photo's - this book is not a disappointment.

Respectfully, I disagree. I think the book more than covers adequately all aspects of this woman's life.
