This was a very fascinating book that gave me a glimpse into a piece of history that happened before my time. However, I don't think I took away from it what was intended by the author. I found Mrs. Kennedy (and the entire Kennedy administration) to be completely self-serving, totally oblivious to the needs of anyone besides themselves, and spending money like a bunch of drunken sailors. Money, that was undoubtedly the tax-payers. NOT theirs. I've never understood the rabid fascination with this particular administration. From everything I just learned (from the man who was closest to them during those 3 years), it was a typical Democratic administration. Rich elitists who were completely out of touch with the people they are supposed to be serving and narcissistic to boot! Their marriage was a sham, family life a joke, and from what I kind see this woman did virtually nothing of value in her time as a First Lady. Almost sounds like someone else we know who is currently occupying the White House.
