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

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".
