Customer Review

on 31 October 2013
I am reading this in conjunction with Professor Sabato's online course. What impresses me most is that the book is in conversational style - an intense, high-level and extremely informed style, certainly, but not at all dry and it could not possibly be uninteresting.
There is demonstrably a staggering amount of research behind this book; the acknowledgements page and the bibliography make that extremely clear - but it is applied in such a way as to clarify the subject rather than simply paraded for its own sake.
On the subject of JFK's adulteries, it's not at all as prurient as it could easily be - although I'm still not sure that the other party in a brief encounter could be described as a "mistress" rather than "just another quickie" - and the details about the assassination evidence that was destroyed/lost/not followed up are genuinely horrifying.
We are probably never going to come close to the truth about the awful day in Dallas; but this book gives an extremely powerful and well-written analysis of what was going on then and what is still happening.
