Before reading: Katzenbach was one of the few aides who allowed himself to be a bridge between Robert Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson, and he must have taken a beating for it. I love the humor in the book's title and cover and look forward to reading it.

After reading: If NdeBK wrote this book recently, it's amazing -- he must be as sharp as a tack. Here are behind the scenes discussions in the making of a few pivotal events in the 1960s described with great detail. While Katzenbach talks about his in
I really enjoyed this. I am familiar with Katzenbach from the Eyes on the Prize civil rights series. When he died earlier this year, I picked up his book. Katzenbach was in the middle of so much of the history of the 1960s.

My father also worked for RFK, albeit more removed than Katzenbach, specifically on Mississippi voter registration, and I am told that my first sentence was, "Daddy go bye bye plane." I was too young to realize, as my mother certainly did, how dangerous his work was. Some of his colleagues in the Justice Department were even authorized to carry guns.
A modestly written and thoroughly insightful book by one of the heroes of the Kennedy and Johnson administrations. Anyone interested in civil rights, public service, or the role of excellent lawyers working for the public good should read this book.

Great book, liked the honest balance in his appraisal of his relationships with JFK, LBJ and RFK. When he was AG his office had sign that said "Our office wins win justice is done" Isn't that true for all prosecutors?
This is my grandfather's book so I have to give it 5 stars but I did enjoy reading it!
Interesting history. Very idealistic.
