Es wurden inzwischen zahlreiche Bücher und Biographien über die Kennedy-Familie und ihre einzelnen Mitglieder veröffentlicht, darunter auch solche, die aussagekräftig und lesenswert sind.

While this book gave me a few little tid-bits of information that I'd either forgotten or didn't know, it was really just a re-hash of well-known facts about the 3 Kennedy brothers - John, Robert, and Ted. The book didn't flow very well - it seemed to be several different writers whose work was patched together, lots of repetition. It was just "okay".
