The Reeves book is good. The others I got the most from were The Kennedy Imprisonment by Garry Wills (too bad Wills can’t be as tough on Obama as he was on JFK – he’s gone soft in his dotage), Reckless Youth by Nigel Hamilton,The Search for JFK by Joan and Clay Blair. Also liked JFK’s Navy buddy Paul Fay’s little memoir, still amusing and enlightening despite the Kennedy family’s giving the (perfectly harmless) text the Manchester treatment. Couldn’t get through the Sorenson book, I’m sorry to say.

America’s Queen, Sarah Bradford’s biography of Jackie, is very good, too. Also liked The Founding Father by Richard Whalen.

I'm currently reading JFK and the Unspeakable. Depressing.
