I really enjoyed listening to this account of the life and political career of Ted Kennedy. History and politics are two of my passions so I was very interested and connected with these years and these events as I lived through and remembered so many things covered in this account.

Although I was aligned politically with Ted Kennedy, the Kennedy family has always fascinated me and their public service, I believe, is done with a true sense of purpose and commitment. That being said, I think probably the best thing that happened to Ted Kennedy other than his own children was his second marriage. She seemed to give him and stability and grounding that had before then been a void in his life. All of this and more is covered in this book, including his long service in the Senate and his legislative accomplishments and failures.
