John F. Kennedy was a war hero. He fought bravely for his country in the second world war and understood courage first-hand. This book is a collection of "senatorial courage." In other words, senators that committed political suicide by acting in direct contrast with their troglodytic (as the author would have you believe) constituents.

Kennedy authored this book in that it was his idea. Ted Sorensen researched and wrote the book. The beautiful prose are the work of another man. Should a Pulitzer be awarded to the employer of the author? Is it courageous to take credit for the work of another man?

Not all profiles are compelling. I found the chapter on Sam Houston to be the most interesting.
