did not like it
Read in May, 2008

Nah. It is a good read for someone with a copious amount of historical knowledge. Otherwise, you have to take Kennedy's (or the ghostwriter's) word for it. It has some readability, but the morals are lost on me. I have sat for hours on the worst roads in Iraq waiting to die. Sticking to your guns in the face of opinions filtered through newspapers and angry constituents doesn't count as "courage" for me.
